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 to find out; which dealership could 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 – the company’s 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! A small group of industry-recognised judges will also score the bikes, and the results of both votes will be combined to choose the winner.


Until 1st March 2015, every one of the 29 Dark Custom Forty-Eight dealer bikes can be viewed via the Harley-Davidson UK Facebook homepage: https://apps.facebook.com/hdbattleofthekingsuk . Each bike will feature three images and detailed information about the build, its builders and corresponding dealership. Look, vote and help to crown our Kings of Custom…
