Harley-Davidson Renews Sponsorship For AMD World Championship Of Custom Bike Building

Because of environment and legal regulations here in the US and abroad, more custom jobs are done on a Harley-Davidson platform already registered and titled, so street legal (at least before customization). Consequently, more custom Harley-Davidson bikes compete in shows against (or with, if in different classes) with full-blown customs built from the ground up (and titled, depending of your State, something like “New Motorcycle Assembled From Parts”).

Just look at the number of these customized factory Harleys present in bike shows like the AMD World Championship of Bike Building. For this reason, last year in Sturgis, Harley-Davidson became an official sponsor of the AMD Modified Harley-Davidson class, handing trophies and awards. Satisfied with the level of participation of its custom machines, the Milwaukee company just renewed its partnership with the AMD show organizer for the full 2010/2011 championship. As evidence of a nice cutom bike built on a Harley platform, I feature a picture of the bike called “Strike True II” recently winner of the Ace Cafe London Motorcycle show and built in the UK by Shaw Harley-Davidson (picture ArtVisage UK)

    I am always in complete awe at the AMD show in Sturgis, where custom bikes that are built by the likes of Satya Kraus show you that you have NOT seen it all before. Very pleased to find that Harley-Davidson are continuing their sponsorship.

    I’m in awe of the bike in your picture. I’m a newbie wanna be motorcyclist and want to get a harley. Where is the best website to find out what type of bike I should get based on my height and (lack of) experience. I was thinking about the Iron 883.??

    Nice copy of my first 2002’s bike called “The racer”…

    It’ s well done with a HD platform!

    This bike will have some success on the AMD modified class during the Sturgis week!

    With the majority of Americans with no cash the HD / Metric make-overs are far more popular than the
    cha-ching $$$$ builds.
