The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Arnold Schwarzenneger rode in the 1991 Hollywood film, 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' sold for $480,000 (around Rs. 3.3 crore in current exchange rates). The motorcycle's sale was handled by Profiles in History as part of its "Icons & Legends of Hollywood" auction, which ran from June 5-8. The bike was originally estimated to sell for anything between $200,000-300,000 (between Rs. 1.3-2 crore), but finally it sold for almost twice the estimated amount. The original motorcycle used in the film is believed to be in good condition, and the new owner's identity has not been disclosed yet.
The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy is one of the most popular models from Harley-Davidson, at least in the 1990s, and it went on to become one of Harley-Davidson's largest-selling models after Arnold Schwarzenneger used it in the film. The bike first makes an appearance in the film when Arnold's character enters a biker's bar to choose a convenient mode of transportation. He picks it up from the parking lot and rides away, and later in the film, the same bike is immortalised in one of the most iconic motorcycle stunt scenes when Arnold's character jumps the Fat Boy over a bridge into a Los Angeles storm drain.
