Back in 1903, Harley-Davidson began building motorcycles in Milwaukee, USA. Today, the life-sized LEGO recreation of LEGO Creator Expert 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy (review) has arrived in the company’s hometown and taken up residence in the Harley Davidson museum.
The detailed model, made entirely of LEGO elements, features silver coated parts, sounds and light effects with wi-fi control. It took 865 hours and 69,569 pieces to put the bespoke build together.
“To actually have the end product here in Milwaukee where Harley Davidson began in 1903 and to have this partnership with a legendary company like Lego be here together and see the fruits of that partnership, it’s incredible,” Harley Davidson Marketing and Strategy Brand Analyst, Nathan Kolbe told Spectrum News 1.
The model has been touring LEGO Stores and other events throughout the USA.
“There is a sensor underneath on each side and the sound that you hear is actually authentic sound from revving up and starting a Harley Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle,” Kolbe said.
