New Military-Themed Accessory Kits for Harley-Davidson

Proceeds will Fund a $100,000 Donation to USO

MILWAUKEE - In honor of those who serve in the U.S. military, Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories has designed a series of Commemorative Edition Military Paint and Accessory Kits for the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle. Five different kits will be produced, each to commemorate a branch of the armed services: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. Production will be limited to 1,000 total kits. Harley-Davidson will also offer new Military Collection accessories, themed to each service branch, that include a special seat, medallion and engine covers.

"To show its support for those who serve our great country, Harley-Davidson will also make a one-time, $100,000 donation of proceeds from the sales of these special kits and accessories to the USO (United Service Organization) whose mission is to provide morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform," said Ron Hutchinson, vice president of Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories.

Each complete paint set kit will include a custom-painted front fender, fuel tank, and rear fender with U.S. flag graphic in colors themed to a specific service branch. A miniature chrome "Bar & Shield" logo authenticates the special design, and each set will be hand-numbered. Also included with the kit are a front-fender medallion with a service branch logo set into a brilliant chrome-plated billet frame, and chrome-plated billet aluminum derby and timer covers and air cleaner trim featuring the appropriate service emblem and the Harley-Davidson "Bar & Shield" framed with a knurled ring. The kit is topped by a Badlander seat with smooth covers, subtle top-stitching, and two silver-grey embroidered H-D Military Stars and Stripes logos.

The Commemorative Edition Military Paint and Accessory Kits ($3,099.95) fit 2001-2006 fuel-injected FLSTFI Fat Boy and 2004-later carbureted FLSTF Fat Boy models, and are available for sale to any customer.

The military-themed paint sets will only be available as part of each complete Commemorative Military Edition kit. However, Harley-Davidson will offer for individual sale each of the military-themed decorative accessories: Military Collection Fender Medallion ($36.95), Military Collection Timer Cover ($59.95), Military Collection Derby Cover ($119.95) Military Collection Air Cleaner Trim ($99.95), and the Military Pattern Badlander Stitched seat ($259.95). Also available is a Military Collection Medallion ($39.95) set into a polished and chrome-plated billet base. Its self-adhesive backing simplifies installation on any flat surface. This medallion is not included in the kit.
