Custom Bike Show


We are delighted to announce that we shall be holding a Custom Motorcycle Show at our stores in Guildford, Newmarket and Norwich which is open to Harley-Davidson® motorcycles and those from other manufacturers.

This is a celebration of what H-D call Dark Custom™. What’s that? Well it’s not just a bike, it’s an attitude expressed by machines that have been stripped back, blacked out and kept simple. If you’re a Dark Custom rider, you don’t follow the normal path, you want to make your own statement on a bike that drips in soul. Got a bike that fits the bill? Then this is your competition.

we will be hosting one of 30 nationwide events to find the ultimate Dark Custom bike and everyone’s invited, entrants and admirers alike. They’ll be two categories ‘Harley®’ and ‘Any Make’ custom and there are prizes for each. Just speak to your local dealer to find out when they’re hosting their competition.

Here’s the plan.

If you’re looking to enter just bring your machine along on the day. Judging will take place there and then, and it’ll be done by a jury of your peers. Just make sure you enter it before the 1pm deadline. Everyone who comes along will get a vote and at the end of the day two winners (‘Best Harley® Dark Custom’ and ‘Best Any Make Dark Custom’) will be announced.

We'd love for you to enter your bike into the competition, we're accepting entries for the following categories, with prizes awarded:

  • Best H-D Dark Custom (£50 Voucher)
  • Best NON H-D Dark Custom (£50 Voucher)
  • Best Custom (£50 Voucher)

The winner of the best Harley-Davidson® custom category will go *forward to H-D UK National Competition, going head to head with other competitors from across the country with a chance to win a prize worth up to £2,500! (*one entry between Norwich & Newmarket)

All the way to the NEC.

What’s more, if you’re the winner of the Harley® competition, your pride and joy will be entered into the Reginal competition and could go onto the H-D UK national competition. Win that and you’ll not only be walking away with £2500 worth of H-D vouchers but your best in show bike will go on display at the NEC National Motorcycle Show this November. And to ensure it’s an occasion you’ll never forget (like you would) you’ll also get a large framed photo of you and your bike on the stand looking like the ‘dog’s proverbials’.

The Best Dark Custom Ride Competition, it’s time to show us what you’ve got.
