The Challenge
The challenge is to partner with local trade school students from across the country, to take a standard Harley-Davidson model and turn it into something unique. Over 40 dealers from across the nation compete to create a custom model in either dirt, track or chop, using Harley-Davidson parts and accessories, with a budget no bigger than half the cost of the original model.

The voting
Who decides the winner of the Battle of the Kings? You do. This is a public vote to find America’s favorite custom bike. Every vote counts, but you can only vote once per bike. The journey doesn’t stop there, the winners of the public vote, People’s Choice Winners, will go onto compete in front of a panel of Harley-Davidson judges, narrowing it down to three category winners.

These top bikes will then be voted on by Harley-Davidson dealers during this year’s Annual Dealer Meeting in Milwaukee. The U.S. Custom King Champion will be crowned and travel to Italy to compete for the World Champion crown.

The final is held at EICMA, as a panel of experts then pick the World Champion of Battle of the Kings.
