The clock is ticking for bikers wanting to ride off with the Carole Nash Old Skool Bobber, a £30,000 goosenecked beauty created by custom kings Hawg Haven.

The bike is set to be given away to the winner of a free prize draw at this year’s Carole Nash International Motorcycle & Scooter Show (Birmingham NEC, November 27th-December 6th).

Created in front of the admiring eyes of some 150,000 bikers at last year’s show the Bobber can be won simply by getting a Carole Nash motorcycle insurance quote by October 31st.

Every quote, regardless of whether insurance is actually taken out with the company, will then go into the prize draw hat.

The presentation of the custom chop will bring to an end a year long tour which has seen the Bobber gain plaudits at shows across the UK and Ireland.

The bike was created under the Carole Nash Construct banner with Hawg Haven’s skilled team putting in over 400 man hours over the 11 days of last year’s NEC show.

Hard graft wasn’t the only thing that caused the team to sweat – working against the clock they completed the bike with just 65 minutes to spare before the show’s shutters went down.

You can find out more about the prize draw, view the Carole Nash Old Skool Bobber picture gallery and read Hawg Haven co-founder Jon Quantrell’s blog covering the highs and lows of creating the bike here.

To be in with a chance of winning this amazing one-off you need to get a no-obligation quote online at www.carolenash.com or call 0800 458 2613.
