Built in Britain - time to pick your favourite

Published: 05 September 2012

Britain’s biggest and most prestigious bike building competition has now reached the public voting stage as the cream of the UK’s professional and amateur builders fight for the top prizes.

Built in Britain attracts the very best machines that have been lovingly customized, restored or modified in the UK and this year the quality of the machines is better than ever.

Our panel of judges including global adventurer Nick Sanders and professional chopper builder Paul Beamish have painstakingly selected the very best 50 machines from the hundreds that have been uploaded onto the built in Britain website.

Ten more entries have been uploaded from the Inside Bikes Facebook page making up the shortlist of sixty bikes.

Now it’s your turn to have your say. Voting for the twelve finalists starts on September 5, just visit www.mcnbuiltinbritain.co.uk and follow the instructions. You can vote for up to 12 machines.

The twelve bikes with the most votes (two from each category) will be professionally photographed and feature in the Carole Nash 2013 calendar and be the stars of the Built in Britain stand at Motorcycle Live at NEC from November 24 2012.

Not only can you select your twelve favourite machines to be put forward into the grand final but you can also claim a free magazine!

Choose between Bike, Classic Bike, Ride and Performance Bikes magazines. Details of how to claim your free magazine are on the vote confirmation page.
