Custom-er wanted



Custom-er wanted


We’re gearing up for the third running of the Battle of the Kings custom challenge and this time we’re planning to do things differently, so we’re looking for one customer as unique as the bike we plan to build.


We want you and your custom inspiration to help us clinch the Europe, Middle East and Africa-wide title. You’ll get to work with our Custom King, Todd Meynell, to create an awe-inspiring custom to ride away on within the constraints of a capped budget and then see it go head-to-head with the nation’s best for the opportunity to represent Harley-Davidson UK & Ireland in the EMEA final at EICMA in Milan next November.


The customer partnership bike build is the perfect opportunity if you have a vision of the perfect bike and a set budget but no idea where or how to start. And our Custom King benefits from customer input into his awe-inspiring design.


This year’s competition is broader than ever with a choice of threeDark Custom motorcycles as the base model: the Iron 883™, Forty-Eight® and Roadster™. Dark Custom bikes are stripped-down and styled with an authentic retro-inspired slant, featuring matte or blacked-out finishes, vintage cues and accessible pricing.Each one is a perfect custom canvass in its own right with as maximum retail price of £12,995 for an Iron 883, £13,995 for a Forty-Eight and £14,995 for a Roadster.


If now’s the right time to turn your money into metal, pop in for a chat with Todd to find out more or to discuss ideas for how your custom bike could be a 2017 Battle of the Kings entry.
