I took my old 2007 Harley Davidson Street Bob up to Seattle in November to have some work done to it over the winter. Well, let’s say it’s had an upgrade.

Here is my new 2019 Harley Davidson Fat Bob. It started out as a stock 114 Cubic Inch Black Harley. This was the first time I had seen the bike. I purchased it sight unseen.

 

After a “few” tweaks. Here is the motorcycle now. My cousin Paul, who runs a parts and service department at the Harley dealership I purchased it from has been setting it up for me.

Paul had one of the local airbrush folks add a memorial for John on the rear fender. Pretty awesome touch. 

 

This was the bike the first time I saw it after the majority of the upgrades.

 

 

List of upgrades so far.

  • Anti-Lock brakes (stock upgrade)
  • Cruise control (factory add on)
  • Heated grips
  • S&S Grand National Exhaust
  • Engine and accessories powder coated gunmetal grey
  • Windshield, quick release
  • Passenger backrest and rack, quick release
  • Painted Burnt Orange
  • Memorial airbrushed on the rear fender for John
  • Little Boy Atomic bomb airbrushed on battery cover
  • Engine upgraded.
    • 465 cam
    • Feuling Cam Plate and oil pump

We should be getting the motorcycle Dyno’d later this week. We are expecting the outcome to be about 110-115HP at the rear wheel. But more interestingly it should have about 135 ft/lbs of torque. Which means it’ll pull your arms off and can ride straight up a mountain.
