Harley-Davidson Battle Of The Kings

29 Harley-Davidson UK & Ireland dealerships complete their individual Dark Custom customised Forty-Eight Sportster. Public voting begins to decide the
‘Kings of Custom’


Over the month of January this year, 29 Harley-Davidson authorised dealers have each used a wealth of customisation talent and the vast resources of Harley-Davidson Parts & Accessories to customise a standard Sportster Forty-Eight®. The reason behind all the sweat and thinking that went into creating 29 individually crafted machines is simple: which dealership would win the coveted title of ‘Kings of Custom’?


In order to create a level playing field, the finished machines must all have taken the form of Harley Dark Custom™ – our own unique brand of stripped back bikes – featuring today’s custom categories of café racer, tracker, long-fork custom etc. The end result is 29 machines built around the same chassis but each with its own distinct character.


From 29 bikes there can only be one winner. And who best to make the call on the best of the bunch, the bike that stands out among the rest? Lovers of mechanical art and all things motorcycling and custom, you have the power to decide and we can’t wait to see which you’ll like best. A small group of industry recognised judges will also score the bikes and the results of both votes will be combined to choose our winner.


From 9th February through to 1st March 2015, every one of the 29 Dark Custom Forty-Eight dealer bikes can be viewed via the Harley-Davidson UK Facebook homepage and Battle of the Kings App : . Each bike will feature three images and detailed information about the build, its builders and corresponding dealership. Look, vote and help us to crown our Kings of Custom…it couldn’t be easier.
