Battle of the Kings
This comes as 26 Australian and New Zealand Harley dealers have been battling in the second annual custom motorcycle build-off competition, Battle of the Kings.
Winner was Gold Coast Harley-Davidson with a Softail Slim (pictured above) that pays homage to the old Panheads and Knuckleheads with a springer front end, custom bars, an original style muffler from a 1930s Harley and a custom-made 2-1 exhaust with old-school ribbing and a chain and sprocket.
It features paint that also pays respects to Harley race bikes of the 1940s.
The custom build is named “Hollister Riot” in reference to the Hollister Riot of 1947 at the AMA Sanctioned Gypsy Tour Motorcycle Rally in the Californian town.
The number 16 is a reference to Jimmy Chan, who made history with three consecutive wins at the Springfield Mile and was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998.
The other finalists were Morgan & Wacker of Brisbane, Adelaide Bike Works, Rolling Thunder of Christchurch and Sunshine Coast Harley.
Gold Coast Harley-Davidson will now represent ANZ against other international winners. Four winners will be selected via online voting and meet the USA winner at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy, in November to battle it out for Global Custom King title.
