Fresh off of debuting the classic 1960’s Ford Mustang, LEGO Creator has decided to focus its attention on immortalizing another automobile classic: Harley-Davidson‘s Fat Boy.

The life-like bike measures over 7 inches high (20 cm tall), 7 inches wide (18 cm wide) and 12 inches long (33 cm long) and takes 1,023 pieces to create. In terms of design, the set includes a Milwaukee-Eight two-cylinder engine with moving pistons that engage when the rear wheel is spun; a handlebar that can move the front wheel; a functional kickstand; and two exhaust pipes and levers for the transmission and brakes. Additionally, the piece is outfitted in the same red and black “Wicked Red” color scheme as the 2019 life-sized Fat Boy.

“Bringing this Harley-Davidson motorcycle to life in brick form is incredibly exciting,” said Mike Psiaki, one of Lego’s design masters, in a statement. “The model truly captures the iconic design, advanced engineering and attention to detail of this iconic motorcycle, offering an immersive building experience and a unique collector’s item for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and Lego fans of all ages.”

The building blocks company also aptly created a 70,000 piece, full-sized Fat Boy to celebrate its latest offering to fans. Interested fans can purchase LEGO Creator’s Harley-Davidson Fat Boy starting August 1 for a retail price of $99.99 USD at select LEGO stores and lego.com. Members of LEGO VIP will be able to purchase the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy set earlier on July 17.
