During this weekend, 20 hot custom bikes were competing in the “Artistry In Iron” championship during Las Vegas Bikefest.
Yesterday Saturday October 5, 2013, at 6 pm at the Las Vegas Cashman Center, organizer Mindi Cherry announced the 2013 champion, unanimously voted the winner by his peers competing against him. Rick Bray from California based RKB Kustom Speed won the bragging rights and $10,000.
It’s a gorgeous Shovelhead that Rick bought 5 years ago from his brother when he ran out of money to finish it. Rick took all these years to finish it, hand making most of the parts in his garage and trading the others with friends.
He already won many awards in bike shows with this creation and declared that he will probably give it back to his brother…and start a new build. (photos @ Jack Mcintyre for Cyril Huze)
