Harley-Davidson began producing motorcycles in 1903. Their product lines include touring, street and cruising motorcycles. The 1999 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy is a cruiser designed for trips around town and adventures within 100 miles or so. The Fat Boy is considered reliable according to area Harley mechanics.

Expert Insight

The Fat Boy doesn't have common automotive fuses; it has circuit breakers. Fred Collins, Seminole Harley-Davidson speed and customisation expert, explained: "The fuse/circuit breaker box on the 1999 H-D Fatboy houses four 15-amp circuit breakers and one 30-amp circuit breaker for the voltage regulator."


The fuse box on the 1999 Fat Boy, as with most motorcycles, is located under the seat to protect it from the elements and prevent water from entering. After removing the seat, the fuse box is visible behind the battery near the rear of the battery box.

Fun Fact

The five-speed 1999 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy has a 1,338-cubic-centimetre air-cooled engine -- yet only has a top speed of 94.4mph. It can be attributed to the weight. The Fat Boy weighs a hefty 305 Kilogram, including engine fluids and 4.20 gallons of fuel.
