Battle of the Kings custom competition returns

1 of 1

Harley-Davidson’s Battle of the Kings custom competition is returning for a fourth consecutive year, and this time around the theme will be the 115th anniversary of the iconic American brand.

The competition is open to official Harley-Davidson dealers, but this year, dealers are invited to partner with members of the public for their bikes, with the incentive of winning back their custom budget of upto £5,500 should they win the UK and Ireland round of the competition.


If you want to commission a Battle of the Kings custom at your local dealer you’ll have to be quick – Harley suggest getting in touch with the Custom King at your local dealer before the end of October to make sure the bike is ready for the public voting in January.

Models eligible for entry to the 2018 competition are the Iron 883, Forty-Eight, Forty-Eight Roadster, Street 750, and Street Rod, plus the Street Bob and Fat Bob from the new Softail range.

Last year’s UK winner was the Beach Bobber built by Shaw Harley-Davidson. The overall winner of this year’s competition will be announced next month at the Milan Show.

Senior Reporter Jordan Gibbons was lucky enough to ride some of the entries from last year’s Battle of the Kings competition, including the winning bike. Looking back at some of the entires from last year we’re super excited to see what beautiful bikes are built this year.
