Fat Girl
Owned by Leo Kuether, of Grand Forks, North Dakota, this intoxicating mixture of rolled radius 17/8-inch DOM tubing and brute American muscle personifies the concept that functionality does not have to look boring. With swoopy lines, contoured body panels, and an unmistakable rumble at idle, "Fat Girl" has an appearance of going fast, even when she is standing still.
