Description

Designed in a Missouri garage, by a mechanical engineer, Bill Davis, in the 1970s, the patent for the “softail” was purchased by Harley-Davidson, first incorporating it in to a purpose-built frame in 1984. Designed to look like a traditional hard tail, the rear of the chassis is a swingarm with cleverly concealed springs, allowing for a far more comfortable ride.

Introduced in 1990, the FLSTF Fat Boy combined components from the Softail Custom and Heritage Softail Classic in a futuristically styled (from a 1950s standpoint) package that proved instantly popular. Arnold Schwarzenegger famously riding one in Terminator 2 didn’t hurt the image, either. Thereafter, dealerships couldn’t keep them in stock and Milwaukee struggled to meet global demand. The popularity of the model, while ebbed and flowed, has never died and after a quarter century is still being made, testament to its enduring appeal.

This first-year Fat Boy hails from a substantial and discerning private California collection. In superb, original condition, the bike has covered a mere 901 miles from new. Purchased from a collector in 2008 in Georgia, the bike has remained on static display, covering only 61 miles in that time. All original and truly excellent throughout, with only the brake reservoir cap showing wear. Fresh from service, the bike is offered in fine riding condition for the next collector.

Sold on a California title.
