LEGO Harley-Davidson Fat Boy: Get Your Motor Runnin’

Do you like smoke and lightning? How about some heavy metal thunder? If you answered yes, you might just be born to be wild. And if you are a true nature’s child, you’ll want to grab this LEGO Creator Expert set that’s based on the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle.

The 1023-piece kit lets you create a miniature version of the iconic motorcycle. It features lots of neat details like a tiny Milwaukee-Eight engine with moving pistons, dual exhaust pipes, handlebar steering, moveable gear shift pedal and brake levers, and a kickstand. The miniature hog rides atop Lakester wheels with some nice fat tires to keep it planted to the ground.

The finished kit measures in at 12″ long and about 7″ high, and looks ready to take to the open road at full throttle. Just don’t get pulled over by any LEGO cops.

The $99.99 set is available for pre-order now at shop.lego.com, and ships on August 1, 2019. LEGO VIPs can grab the set a couple of weeks early on July 17.

If you prefer your Harleys to be life-size, then check out this awesome build that LEGO did to celebrate the launch of the set. What you’re looking at is a 100% scale replica of the real bike, constructed from nearly 70,000 individual bricks.

What if Harley Davidson designed Air Purifiers

Well, if the company that made petrol-chugging motorbikes decided to also make air purifiers, I’d consider it a pretty good thing… but this one’s just a concept. As a part of PDF Haus’s What if ‘X’ brand made ‘Y’ product series, this is the Harley Davidson Air Purifier… a vertical air purifier that does a pretty remarkable job of copying the company’s sense of style and superimposing it on a product not manufactured by the company.

Look at the air purifier’s side profile and the shape immediately makes sense! The purifier is shaped like Harley’s iconic motorbike fuel tanks, and even packs the Harley logo to further the connection. Look to the front and you see the grill with three air outlets that push out the clean air. They’re encircled with warm, orange LEDs that tell you when the product is on, and a touchscreen panel on the top helps you control the purifier. On the opposite side is an easy-access hatch that lets you replace filters, and right at its bottom are the product details.

The presence of orange LEDs seems a little odd given that one has always associated pure air with the colors white or light blue. Maybe there’s a heater function too… that would make the orange LEDs really do the trick! Also, I wonder if the product makes the same sound as a Harley’s exhaust, or is it silent, like most purifiers??
