Calling all custom-ers… could your next bike help crown us Custom King 2018?

Harley-Davidson has today launched the fourth annual instalment of the Battle of the Kings custom bike build competition and, for the first time ever, we are looking to partner with a customer to give them not only a unique customised Harley-Davidson, but also the chance to win back their full customisation budget spend of up to £5,500.

If you’ve been thinking about coming to chat to us about creating your one-off dream machine for a while, there’s never been a better time to make the commitment. And with this year’s theme confirmed as the 115th Harley-Davidson anniversary, you have 115 years’ worth of custom and iconic bikes for inspiration.

The finished bike will range in price, depending on which base model we agree on as your blank canvas. The bikes eligible for Battle of the Kings 2018 are Harley-Davidson Sportster® Dark Custom® models Iron 883™, Forty-Eight® and Roadster™. Street® 750 and Street Rod® are also included plus the Street Bob® and Fat Bob® from the exciting line up of all-new Softail® motorcycles.

All you need is an idea for the custom you’d like to create – inspired by a Harley-Davidson motorcycle from the last 115 years of Harley-Davidson bike-building – and we’ll do the rest. There are a few rules* aka T&Cs* we have to be follow to qualify for a Battle of the Kings entry but we can take you through those in full.

Customers old and new of Riders of Bridgwater or Bristol who would like to commission a Battle of the Kings custom machine need to call in and see us bytheend of October to allow enough time for the bike build to be completed by 31st December before going forward to public voting in January 2018, followed by the deciding vote of an independent judging panel. If your bike wins the competition outright, you will also win back your customisation budget of up to £5,500. Oh, and don’t forget that even if you don’t win, you’ll have a unique custom Harley to ride around on.
