Custom King: Derren Harper, 39, Parts Advisor
It was August 2015 when Derren Harper started working for Lakeside Harley-Davidson as Parts Advisor – and he hasn’t looked back since! “I have had a massive interest in Harley-Davidson for as long as I can remember,” said Derren. “Which obviously makes this job all the better. I ride a Harley Tourer FLHS and adore it. All bikes are a big passion of mine; I have been racing them since I was five years-old, when I started with motocross. I love doing customisation, so if you are looking to make your Harley a bit more personal, feel free to come and see me!”
Taking the theme of 115 years of Harley-Davidson, what one bike would you consider is the most iconic? Not easy to choose, is it? In Derren’s mind, though, the choice was easy. “I don’t think you can get more iconic than Evel Knievel’s jump bike –it’s instantly recognisable.” The build itself was apparently straight forward, but if there is one thing that stands out the most it has to be in the detail of the paintwork.
