Only 900 miles - Like New - This is what the motorcycle magazines say about a Screamin Eagle Fat Boy - The big 103-cubic-inch Screamin Eagle engine revs just below redline. The drag strip Christmas tree goes from yellow to green. I dump the clutch, feeling the rear wheel break loose. Seconds later, I flash through the timing lights at the end of the eighth-mile run, accelerating through 80 mph in third gear. OK, an 80-mph run on an eighth-mile drag strip is hardly unheard-of. But zero to 80 on a 689-pound (claimed, dry) Harley Fat Boy? Better yet, zero to 80 on a Fat Boy just the way you can buy it from your local dealer? Thats pretty impressive. -- And this one is even more impressive, Vance and Hines complete custom exhaust system, Harley Leather seat as well as the the original seat, CVO custom motorcycle cover and all the books and keys that came from Harley. . . Two of these babys came to the Rio Grande Valley and I got both of them, Full warranty, never been dropped . . this is a no pick Bad Boy!! We are close to the Foward Air terminal and will take it there for free. . Buyer to pay shipping and tie down hardware to secure the motorcycle inside the crate. . . The first one brought $30,000 plus shipping and this one has alot more equipment!!. . . This is a great buy and a Big Time Head Turner!! Sound and All. . Harleys CVO program started in 1999 as a way to buy a new bike already outfitted with plenty of Harley accessories, special paint and the companys Screamin Eagle line of performance parts. But for 05, the company has upped the ante considerably. But performance upgrades are only part of the CVO story. The Fat Boy receives special attention in the accessory and paint shops, too. Harley has always known how to do paint, and all of the bikes are gorgeous. But the Fat Boy gets a truly custom look. Portions of the tank and fenders are left unpainted and treated with a process called metal grind accent. As the name implies, that means patterns are ground into the raw metal, which is clear-coated to preserve the look.
The Screamin Eagle Fat Boy, comes with a balanced 103-inch (1,690cc) Twin Cam Stroker engine that is 240cc larger than the standard Fat Boy powerplant (and is the largest engine ever offered in a production Harley) . The result, says Harley, is a 10 percent increase in power. Of course, stroker and big-bore kits are hardly new to the Harley world. The differences with the CVO bikes, notes Ron Hutchinson, vice president of parts and accessories, are that you can order them directly from a Harley dealer, and the bike you buy is 50-state EPA-compliant. On the track, we get to feel 100 foot-pounds for ourselves, and the results are impressive. Every time the light turns green, the rear wheel spins up. Wow, a tire-smoking Harley Fat Boy!
