Oxford (08 August 2011) - Following its unrivalled success at the AMD Official World Championship of Custom Bike Building, ‘Strike True II’ is making its UK debut in Manchester. The customised Harley-Davidson Softail Crossbones motorcycle, which was created by Shaw Harley-Davidson, clinched victory at the event held in Sturgis in 2010, and can now be seen as part of a special exhibit at the Customising, Culture & Harley-Davidson exhibit at the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI).

The victorious bike features a number of modifications, including a hand-made rear fender, fabricated petrol tank, 1940s style speedster handlebars and custom paintwork.

The Customising, Culture & Harley-Davidson exhibit at MOSI runs until 11 September and tickets cost £8 for an adult, £2 for children, (under 5s go free), with concessions also available.
