Motorcycles and movies. The two are the perfect combo, from the Wild Ones to Easy Rider to modern movies such as Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.

And one movie that brought another Harley-Davidson motorcycle before the eyes of many was the early 90’s film Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

In Terminator 2, California’s future governor Arnold Schwarzenegger piloted a 1990 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy.

This “T2” motorcycle has been acquired by the Harley-Davidson Museum, and will be on display with other items from the movie.

“The ‘T2’ motorcycle is a great addition to our collection, and it signifies one of the most important film roles our product has played in pop culture history,” said Bill Davidson, vice president of the Harley-Davidson Museum. “We are excited to put the motorcycle on display for visitors to see, and for some, take them back to 1991 and a time when this iconic film ruled the box office.”

Harley reports that the Fat Boy shows “significant production wear from filming takes the starring role in the display.”

Along with tike, other items will be on display, including the full custom wore by Schwarzenegger, shot gun props, and Polaroid images of character Sarah Conner (actress Linda Hamilton) used to ensure continuity between takes, and more. Harley says The additional movie memorabilia is on loan from the private collection of ScreenUsed.com.
