Harley-Davidson Murdered-Out Fat Boy

"This is a prime example of a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy with all the fruit," said James.

“I GREW up with bikes—pushbikes, motorbikes—and I was always reading motorbike magazines,” said Jason. “I always wanted a cruiser. I started off with a Ninja, sold that, got a couple of dirt bikes—450, 250 two-strokes—and thought it was about time to buy a real bike.

“I’ve had this 2021 Fat Boy for just over 12 months now. It’s had a full motor rebuild from top to bottom, full air-ride suspension, a custom centre-stand, and a custom 23-inch remake of a Fat Boy wheel.

“James from Slick Customs did the majority of the work on the bike.”

“The tins are standard except for the front guard which was painted by a mate. I’m a trimmer, so obviously I re-trimmed the seat before the photoshoot,” said Jason.

“Julius, the photographer, asked me if I was after an agro, mean, vicious look, something out of Mad Max movie. A lot of people say, being so black, it looks like a bat-bike.

“I really enjoy riding the completed Fat Boy; you’ve just got to hold on tight because it really goes hard.”

Build credit for this one goes to James at Slick Customs in Canberra!

“This is one of the bigger builds we’ve completed,” said James. “This 2021 Fat-Boy came to us basically brand new. This is a prime example of a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy with all the fruit. It made 156 hp and 161 lb-ft of torque on the dyno—and it’s naturally aspirated! Making it a true street machine. Our mission was to build a bike that turned heads, and also met our customers visual aesthetics. With a different pipe this build could easily crack the 160 hp mark.”
