My New Bike
 
This is my new toy. It is a 2002 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat Boy Soft tail. It has been decked out with lots of chrome and gold extras, as well as the obvious ape hangers and turn signals to the tune of about $6.000.00.This bike was garage kept and only has 8889 original miles on it.my future plans include forward controls, chopped bobber style fenders. And single postman bicycle style seat. But for now I am totally thrilled. God Is Good!!!:smilez:

Fatboy
 
here's a little trivia on the name 'Fat Boy'

the two A-Bombs dropped on Japan during WWII were called Fat Man & Little Boy
Harley's first Fatboy built in 1990 was painted silver and has solid aluminum wheels that where to represent the color & wheel design of the B-29 bomber that dropped the bombs, they took the name of the 2 bombs and came up with 'FATBOY'
the solid wheels became synonymous with the Fatboy

it originally had the 80 cu.in. Evolution engine caller either 'Evo' or 'Blockhead'

in 2000 it came with the newly designed Twin Cam 88 cu.in. 1450 cc engine called the 'Fathead' and

if your bike has a 'B' in the serial # then you have one of the most sought out engines, the smooth and powerful 88B, counterbalanced fuel injected version of the Twin Cam 88, this engine lasted until 2006 and has been replaced by 4 larger engines since 2006

the 110 cu.in. is the largest to date used only in the CVO bikes, Harley's factory performance production bikes, kinda like the FORD SVT;
with the 103 cu.in. being the standard,
the Twin Cam engine has proven to be powerful as well as reliable with the engine lasting up to or past the 80,000 mile mark before a top end rebuild is needed

thanks JS. I give God the glory and thank Jesus for the blessing. I plan on using blessing as a witnessing tool. :grinz:

I see a lot of zip-ties on the handlebars & cables, they make billet aluminum cable clamps that really dress it up

go on line and order a free parts catalog from J&P cycles

http://www.jpcycles.com/catalogrequest

and one from Drag Specialties

http://www.dragspecialties.com/catalogs/

I recall, but not sure of the year
that the twin cam engine needed to be up-graded to a newer style cam chain tensioner

you should check into this and get friendly with either a local independent Harley mechanic or go to the dealer:money::sick:


here's a FORUM you may want to check out - http://www.twincamforums.com/

PS: the twin Cam is also known as 'Twinkies'
