It certainly is - even in stock form and it's only going to get better with pipes, cams etc...

I have a 2012 Fatbob and love it but when I saw the 2018's wow!!! I'm jealous! I'd love to get one and if I can twist my wife's arm enough it might happen. Enjoy the ride and I loved all the pix!!

I'm anxious to see that rocket fairing on it.
Here's a couple of pics - first the Rocket fairing on a non-softail Fat Bob:



And the same fairing loosely held up against the Softail Fat Bob's LED light. You can see that it's too far forward, but the shape of the hole in the fairing fits the LED light well. Phil is currently reworking the mounting brackets to move the fairing back flush against the light.



Phil's stuff is excellent quality hand laid very thick fibreglass, so I am looking forward to getting the prototype. Will post about it here once it's ready....

Get one! I loved my Dyna Fat Bob, but the Softail version is leaps and bounds better in every way.

Didn't realise you were coming all the way up here to get one

West Coast used to be in the middle of Glasgow, it's a great new site they have now, a brill coffee shop, and all really friendly staff. I hope they looked after you.

Enjoy
(I'm struggling to convince myself not to buy a new one )

To be honest, I didnít expect to be going to Glasgow to get a bike either. But it was that or another 2 months to wait for one from Guildford, so....

West Coast were great - and the new shop is much better than the old one at Charing Cross or wherever it used to be!

The exact same bike as yours just rolled off the Dyno with a Stage IV kit installed, Street Cannon mufflers and tuned with Mastertune2. Lots of fun to ride.
