The Invitation to participate in the 2020 King of Kings Custom Build Competition was something that we at Gold Coast Harley® jumped at.  The opportunity to pit our skills and talents against previous winners of the Battle of the Kings Internationally once again got our competitive juices flowing, and to have another Custom on the World Stage alongside other awesome Builders.  

Competition is what Racing is all about, going bar to bar with the best, and the finest, to test your metal on centre stage.  The history of the Motor Company is littered with challenges, and the name Harley-Davidson is synonymous with Racing. So what better way to epitomise this than to build a Sportster as a tribute to the Racers that came before us and the men that faced those challenges head-on, in building and racing these motorcycles on the Tracks in the USA and Europe. 

In building this XRTT-1200 we have faced our own challenges, but in the true style of Sport of Motorcycle Racing we have bashed the bars, and block passed and come out the others side and believe we have honoured those before us and those with us.  The Motorcycling World was introduced to the Sportster in 1957, the Motor Company’s newest addition to an already rich history, powered by a 55cc Overhead Valve Engine and within a year of its debut is recognised as one of the first “superbikes”.  From 1957 to now, Sportster has leapt forward in time but we hope to have built the pure racing spirit of the Sportster in our 2020 XRTT-1200 Daytona.

The Build Team from the 2019 Battle of the Kings were once again in play for this build, but the main drivers behind the Daytona were Jack Baugh and Matt Valentine.  

Jack is Gold Coast H-D Service Manager and a former Harley-Davidson® Master Tech, he brings 18yrs H-D® dealership experience to the table. Being a huge fan of original 1950s Cafe Racers from his homeland of England and Sportsters®, he couldn't wait to get started on this build.

Matt Valentine is the Technician on the build having full creative freedom and was given the hard task of turning dreams and visions into a workable reality. At the end of 2020, Matt will also become a fully qualified Harley-Davidson® Master Technician. Matt has already gained a name on the Gold Coast as a great creative custom bike builder. He was also the Technician on our Winning Battle of the Kings build "The Hollister Riot" in 2019.

Nothing can be taken away from anyone at Gold Coast Harley® though, as both Jack and Matt were assisted by many of the staff for the whole process to come to fruition.  This really was a team effort.   

This bike is truly a Custom King, it sports a number of one-off hand made parts, and many obstacles needed to be overcome to make it work.  We had plenty of assistance, and they need to be acknowledged also. Here’s a massive shout out to the following that helped the Daytona come together.  

  • Mark Walker – QMPP
