The FLSTFSE2 Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy goes wide for 2006, as the powerful street cruiser from Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) hits the street sporting a new 200mm rear tyre and an all-new custom paint scheme guaranteed to turn heads. Back for an encore is the Screamin’ Eagle 103 Stroker Twin Cam engine, tuned to deliver more than 96 ft. lbs. of torque to that meaty rear tyre as it powers the Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy down the street. The Harley-Davidson CVO program creates low-volume, custom performance motorcycles produced by a hand-picked team of technicians in a special assembly area at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City, Mo. Approximately 3,900 examples of the 2006 Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy will be assembled at the York Vehicle Operations facility.
The new Dunlop 200/55R-17 rear tyre is mounted on a 6-inch by 17-inch forged aluminium Road Winder wheel, replacing the Dunlop 150/80B-16 tyre and 16-inch polished aluminium disc wheel used on the 2005 Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy. To accommodate the wide rear tyre, the Softail frame tails are widened, as are the rear fender and rear fender strut covers.
To complement the new rear tyre/wheel combination, the front gets fatter, too, with a Dunlop 140/75-17 tyre on a 17-inch Road Winder wheel replacing the former Dunlop MT90B-16 tyre and 16-inch disc wheel. A matching Road Winder billet sprocket and Road Winder brake rotors are showcased through the eight thin spokes of the Road Winder wheels. Lowered rear suspension accentuates the look of the wide rear tyre and fender.
The fuel-injected, counter-balanced Screamin’ Eagle 103 Stroker Twin Cam displaces 103 cubic inches (1690cc), the largest engine displacement offered in a production Harley-Davidson, and produces more than 96 ft. lbs. of torque at 4000 rpm. Based on the standard Twin Cam 88B V-Twin, the Screamin’ Eagle 103 Stroker features big-bore cylinders and a new flywheel assembly, pistons and balance shaft to increase bore and stroke from 95.3 x 101.6 mm to 98.3 x 111 mm. A heavy-duty clutch is hydraulically controlled. A Stage 1 air cleaner kit fits under the teardrop shaped chrome air-cleaner cover. Slash-down mufflers feature bright chrome heat shields.
Three new colour combinations are offered for the 2006 Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy: Nebula Yellow Pearl and Cobalt Blue, Autumn Haze and Abyss Blue, and Canyon Copper and Concord Purple. A new paint design features ghost flames and the industrial, clear-coat-covered metal grind accents that debuted on the 2005 Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy. The frame, frame inserts and swingarm are colour-matched to the body paint.
New Buskshot hand grips match the Buckshot accessory collection that includes mirrors, strut covers, rear brake pedal, footboard inserts, shift lever, shifter linkage and derby cover. A solo seat rests on a chrome-plated steel pan and a decorative chrome pillion is perched on top of the rear fender. A Harley-Davidson alarm system with siren and a special CVO key and CVO storage cover are standard equipment with this custom motorcycle.
