Once again, Purpose Built Moto steps on new ground with this Custom Harley-Davidson Fatbob. Built around the M8 engine and frame, this bike rolled into us reasonably stock-standard, with only a few thousand KMs on it. Phil had been coming into the shop trying to find his perfect bike for a while, test riding and buying a few bikes before he landed on his new Harley. The torque and thunder from the M8 power plant instantly grabbed his attention and after a few rides he was hooked.

That’s where the conversation started to build him a custom Harley-Davidson Fatbob that would suit his newfound riding love. Phil found himself on destination-less rides through northern NSW and regional QLD, often staying out overnight after winding his way down gravel roads for the day. The needs for this custom Harley involved creating a better handling motorcycle, retaining an upright “all day” riding position, removable luggage racks for his weekends away and releasing a bit more power out of the bike. His dream bike was more aspirational, chasing some unique tracker styling, custom wheels to suit sportier tyres , and a snarling performance exhaust.
