Let Battle Commence!

It’s finally here…after a two-month bike design and build, we’re ready to introduce our 2016 Battle of the Kings bike entry. We’d like you to be among the first to get a sneak preview at our bike reveal evening on Saturday 12 March.

We’re confident that our modern twist on a café racer themed Sportster® Iron 883™ is ready to do battle with the custom Iron 883 motorcycles created by the other Harley-Davidson® dealerships across the UK & Ireland.

This year’s custom creation has been a real team effort with inspiration gained from everyone at Sycamore H-D. Once we had an idea on the shape, our design evolved rapidly; from the vibrant paintwork that moves fluidly with the bike to a custom exhaust. From there, we carefully and slowly created a unique bike with an aggressive riding position and custom seat, and we’re keen to hear what you think of it.

Todd Meynell is vying for the title of Custom King on our behalf and has been working on the Sycamore H-D entry since last December. His entry must demonstrate originality and creativity to prove that he is a top bike builder. He’ll be on hand at our bike reveal to show you what he’s done, provide some inspiration and talk about any customisation plans you might be toying with.

The showroom will be open from 9.00am to 5.30pm and it’s free for you to pop in any time throughout the day. Keep an eye on our website for more exciting news about the bike reveal event coming soon too.
