MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – The Harley-Davidson Museum has acquired one of the few surviving 1990 Harley-Davidson FatBoy motorcycles used in 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'.

Back then the FatBoy was a new Harley' model; that now in the museum’s permanent collection was actually ridden by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1991 action classic.

Museum curator Jim Fricke said: "It was an iconic film, a celebrated piece of pop culture history. This motorcycle arguably played one of the most significant film roles in Harley-Davidson’s history and we’re thrilled it has found its permanent home here.”

FILMING DAMAGE

The bike, which still shows significant wear from filming, joins a collection of more than 450 motorcycles and thousands of other artifacts in the museum.

The Harley-Davidson Museum is at 400 West Canal Street in Milwaukee and provides a glimpse of American history and culture like you’ve never seen it before – through the lens of The Motor Company. The 10ha campus has abundant free parking, and includes a bar, restaurant and shop.
