The Ultimate Custom Bike Competition
The Ultimate Custom Bike Competition – Battle of the Kings
Challenged to design and create the ultimate Dark Custom™ bike, 30 Harley-Davidson® dealerships from across the UK and Ireland will compete to take the crown in the Battle of the Kings competition by modifying a brand new 2016 Sportster® Iron 883™.
Every Harley-Davidson dealership is equipped with an in-house Custom King. An expert customiser, mechanic and artist. And each one has been given a 2016 Iron 883TM. The ask? Create a one off masterpiece.
It’s now up to a jury of experts to select the national winner from the top public votes. The winners from each market will then compete in the European final at the Wheels and Waves Festival in June.
Watch the video from our Harley-Davidson Birmingham dealership where Dealer Principal, Phil Whitehead talks about the competition, their entry and the customisation services that are available from our Stratstone Harley-Davidson dealers.
The National Custom King is Crowned
After a fiercely fought custom contest for the 2016 Battle of the Kings (BOTK), Warr’s Harley-Davidson, Kings Road, London has been crowned the winner, with Maidstone Harley-Davidson and Dublin Harley-Davidson securing the runners-up spots in second and third respectively.
The winning ‘Rascal Racer’ – a modern interpretation of the iconic Harley-Davidson XLCR Cafe Racer – will now represent the UK & Ireland in the 2016 Battle of the Kings European final at Wheels & Waves in Biarritz, France on 8-12 June 2016.
The national final saw a select panel of judges from all aspects of motorcycling vote on five BOTK finalist machines as chosen by online public voting from an original entry line-up of 30 Harley-Davidson dealer-built custom Iron 883™ motorcycles. The judging criteria included design vision, originality and creativity and quality of build and execution.
The base bike used for all entries to BOTK 2016 was the Sportster® Iron 883 from the Harley-Davidson® Dark Custom range and all customisations were achieved within a maximum retail price of £12,995 for both bike and customisation. This, of course, means that our own Custom Kings in dealership can recreate any of the machines that inspired you from this year’s entries.
Because of the incredible originality and design detail of this year’s bikes, judging was a close-run affair. Harley-Davidson UK & Ireland Marketing Manager, Steve Colling, said: “The standard and quality of this year’s Battle of the Kings entries were incredible and paid testament to the custom expertise held by our entire dealer network.
“We hope that the contest has inspired many people who dream of owning a custom but don’t know where to start in terms of achieving the look they desire. The entries should help with design ideas as well as filling customers with confidence about the craftsmanship employed by all of our dealer teams.”
