Dyna FXDF Fat Bob
The very first things that set the Fat Bob apart from other Dynas are the twin
led headlights braced between polished triple clamps as well as the fat wheels.
Thanks to the large diameter brake discs, these lasts actually look like Fat Boy
units so it’s easy to start confusion especially if the bike cruises along you
down the highway.
With drag-style bars
and a 5.1 gallons tank that fits different models apart from the Fat Bob (it’s
good that they do mention this bike as being the source), this thing already
qualifies for a bad boy machine, but not completely. Not yet. Just wait to hear
about the right rider side mounted two-into-two exhaust that looks just as good
as the one on the V-Rod.
|Among the bike’s top features is the one that nobody could possibly miss, the
beating and powerfully sounding heart also knows as the Twin Cam 96 engine. The
bike’s centerpiece and a work of art itself - the motor - is fuel injected so it
will not only provide the unmistakably grunty engine torque of 92 ft. lbs. but
ensure low fuel consumption and great responsiveness. There’s also a sixth gear
and forward (or mid, it’s optional) mounted foot controls so that you’ll be
riding in style down the highway and obtain great mileage while on it too.

||The low seat height of only 26.1 inches might manage to make the Fat Bob look
like the ride of everyone, but once you become aware of the massive stature and
703 lbs wet weight (not always an advantage), it will be once again clear that
Harleys are destined to serious riders with serious demands from their bikes.
Also, riding on big tires with an aggressive tread pattern mounted on 16-inch
Slotted Cast Aluminum wheels, the Fat Bob is a cool and confident ride.
Harley-Davidson FXEF Fat Bob
|In 1979, Harley-Davidson had introduced the FXEF Fat Bob motorcycle derived from
the Super Glide series. This bike is famous to have “donated” its fuel tank to
most models of the series and retains the very same original lines of this piece
to this day.
After production of the
Super Glide was stopped back in 1985, the Fat Bob became base model of the
series it once came up to complete and that’s when most of the first generation
bikes were sold.
2008 saw the
introduction of the all-new FXDF Fat Bob, a machine that was practically reborn
just so that the modern Dyna lineup would meets various riding demands. This is
also when the aggressive drag style was approached and when the engine together
with all goodies of modern technology ended up reflecting the best of it so
