Oxford (22 March 2011) - The gruelling nine-month wait is over – the winner of the Harley-Davidson® Custom Bike Competition 2010 has finally been chosen. Pierre Lagrange took the prize for his retro-inspired Softail® Cross Bones™ – a matte and chrome masterpiece which oozes style.
Pierre, sponsored by Warr’s Harley-Davidson®, was selected from nine finalists – all of who submitted customised bikes of the highest standard. But with its genuine old-school look and effective use of Genuine Harley-Davidson Motor Accessories ®, Pierre’s bike was the clear winner. Voted for by other Harley fans, the nine finalists were whittled down from hundreds of submissions received by judges at Harley-Davidson UK last year.
Pierre’s 1930’s-inspired Softail® Cross Bones™ is sure to impress fans of custom bikes. From its stunning, black paint-job – complete with old-fashioned gold Harley® logo – to subtle chrome parts and authentic brown leather finishing touches, nothing has been neglected.
The skill and care that went into the customisation is clear, and the list of parts speaks for itself: a chrome rocker cover kit, spring classic front fender, chrome round mirrors, passing lamps and a smoked detachable windscreen are just for starters. The Cross Bones™ has also been fitted out with a classic horn kit, gloss black trans covers, black engine guard and detachable rack, diamond black cables and Softail® springer beach bars.
The overall effect is a modern twist on stunning vintage style. Although it looks like it’s from the 1930’s, it comes with the latest easy running fuel injection, six speed gearbox self cancelling indicators and, most importantly on our busy roads, up to the minute brakes! Sleek and stylish, the timeless look of this Harley-Davidson® motorcycle has to be one of the things that made it a winner.
