Battle of the Kings 2019 is go and Harley-Davidson UK dealers have created 11 strong contenders to take on the task of dethroning last year’s winner, The Prince, from first-time entrants Bangkok Harley-Davidson. But, to be in with a chance of global victory, they must first make it past the first round of public voting.
Voting opened on 15th January and will remain live for one month, with up to five of the top bikes going through to the shortlist for an expert panel to choose the national winner. From there, the UK winner will go head-to-head in an international public vote. Votes can be cast at the dedicated Custom Kings website where you can find out more about each of the UK contenders.
For the first time ever, our Custom Kings had the choice of any model in the Harley-Davidson® range (excluding Trike and CVO models) as their customisation base. Plus, they all had a maximum budget of 50% of the donor bike retail price and a directive that 50% of the parts used must be genuine Harley-Davidson® accessories.
Every custom machine, which must be road legal, will fit into three categories of Chop, Dirt and Race and the changes in rules have already provided some interesting entries with our first ever Race themed Street Glide from Guildford Harley-Davidson®!
