Voting for the Harley-Davidson Custom Motorcycle Competition finishes in less than week!

In less than a week’s time, voting will close for Battle of the Kings III – Europe’s biggest dealer-led customisation build-off competition. Tuesday 14 February, Valentine’s Day 2017, will be the last day for fans of Lind Harley-Davidson and customisation to vote for one of our four unique Battle of the Kings machines that could represent the UK in a battle royal between fellow competitors from Europe, Middle East, Russia and Africa.

220 Harley-Davidson® dealerships from 21 countries – including 31 across the UK and Ireland – are competing to take the Battle of the Kings 2017 crown with their individual Dark Custom builds.

Now in its third year, Battle of the Kings has opened the eyes of many Harley-Davidson owners and admirers to the world of affordable customisation. The Battle of the Kings website also includes a gallery packed with images from the first two years of the competition plus a hub of ‘custom inspiration’ to help riders create their own unique machine with our in-house ‘Custom Kings’.

You can vote online for our Battle of the Kings 2017 entry to create a shortlist for each region or country. Judging of the UK’s online-voted top five machines will take place at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show (17-19 February) by a select panel of judges consisting of personalities and specialist lifestyle and media outlets and include:

  • Gary Pinchin – Editor Classic Bike, and Built magazine
  • Ped Baker – MCN Managing Editor Digital & Events,
  • Grayson Perry – artist, TV presenter and cultural icon
  • Jamie Hibbard – journalist, motoring correspondent, and Harley-Davidson ambassador
  • Richie Finney – founder of gentleman’s grooming specialist Captain Fawcett
  • Mikko Nieminen – Motorcycle Sport & Leisure magazine

It will be the judges’ decision to determine which one Battle of the Kings bike and Custom King bike builder will be entered into a grand finale to decide the overall Battle of the Kings 2017 champion at Milan’s prestigious EICMA motorcycle exhibition in November 2017. We want it to be one of our stores and you can help.
