Have you got the UK’s best bike?

Published: 09 August 2012

Carole Nash and MCN have launched Built in Britain, the UK’s biggest bike competition to find the nation’s most talented bike builder. Previously known as Britain’s Got Biking Talent, it attracts thousands of entries vying to win the most coveted award in biking.

We’ve added a new category this year, the Professional Builders award. Open to any builder who sells his creations for profit, the top prizes in both the professional and amateur classes are a fantastic £1100 Draper Expert toolkit plus £1000 in cash! 

This is a competition for ALL types of bike so if you’ve just completed a restoration or fitted a supercharger to your ZX-10R, you’re in with a chance!

Full details can be found on www.mcnbuiltinbritain.co.uk but the six categories are: Sports & sports modified, Classics, Choppers & Customs, Streetfighters, Concours & Restored plus the new Pro builder category.

A panel of judges will choose the 50 top bikes and the rest is up to a public vote on the Carole Nash Insidebikes Facebook page (www.facebook.com/insidebikes).

12 finalists will be displayed at the NEC show with the winner announced at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show in February. Upload your bike today!
