Some people take custom bike building seriously. Then there are those who really take it seriously. Then there are those who just can’t go one day without tinkering on custom-built bikes. Well, there’s a competition for people like this in the form of the London Custom Bike Championships.
Scheduled from February 13 to 15, 2015, the second London Custom Bike Championships will once again be part of the MCN London Motorcycle Show and will feature some of the biggest and most popular bike builders in the world. The list runs long and thorough and features noted builders like Auto Fabrica, Cooper Motorcycles, Lamb Engineering, and Kevils Speedshop. Las year’s winner, Destiny Cycles, will also return to defend its title and face a field of builders that are looking for their own shot at custom bike-building glory.
Just like last year, the winning builder will receive a host of cool prizes, including a cash prize of £12,000 ($18,000) and vouchers for performance parts companies Harrison Billet and Zodiac. Oh, and did I mention that the winner will also become just the second victor of the competition?
That’s a lot of pressure put on these builders, which should give all of them enough motivation to put their best foot forward as they prepare their custom-built bikes for the competition.
No pressure, right?
