The Battle of the Kings competition returned for 2017 and we entered our custom Sportster, UPROAR! into the contest as we took on Harley-Davidson dealerships around the UK. Last year we brought you our tracker-inspired custom Iron 883, the Trespasser, which came very close to taking the crown and finished in 2nd place overall! We're very proud of the work we've done in both the previous competitions and this entry was no different as the comments, feedback, exposure and love that UPROAR! received was absolutely incredible.
Thank you for your support!
This year we set out to design and build a bike you'd look at and want to own yourself. No bells, no whistles, no gimmicks. This is stripped back and raw, but with class. With UPROAR we feel we’ve achieved exactly this, while keeping in with the Dark Custom theme of the competition, and showcasing just what can be done with genuine Harley-Davidson product, some subtle touches in the right areas, and a showpiece in the centre with the exhaust, UPROAR is both realistic and current.
MY17 Dark Custom Sportster model of your choice with a minimum of 50% H-D parts. Bike must be road legal. Models must be capped at the following price for re-sale and must be able to be re-created and sold for that price – Iron 883 £12,995, Forty-Eight £14,995, Roadster £14,995. Max retail price includes bike, parts, paint, fabrication and labour.
Building a bike is a journey of passion, dedication, skill and teamwork. Without all these things our custom Sportster UPROAR! for the Harley-Davidson Battle Of The Kings Competition would never have become a reality. We're proud of the hard work that our team put into this project and hope you like seeing how it all came together.
