Leeds takes the lead!

A huge cheers to each and every person who voted – we’ve smashed it!

Yep, Leeds Harley-Davidson is officially one of the UK & Ireland’s finalists in the Battle of the Kings competition. We couldn’t have done it without you and, with thousands of votes cast between the 30 contenders to whittle it down to just five finalists, there’s plenty of people to thank….But we’re not done yet.

Next up the Team BOOMBabY bike will be roaring down to London for a shot at the national championship. Can we pull off a coup and take the title? We say bring it on…

Our team may be small but there’s no-one more passionate when it comes to capturing the raw grit, spirit and essence of what it is to be part of the Harley-Davidson family. This challenge wasn’t about a simple custom job, it was taking the raw and untamed freedom that embodies everything H-D and pushing boundaries to create a bike worthy of the moniker.  

Our competition may be tough but nobody said anything worth having was easy – just ask YouTube bodybuilding star, and the inspiration behind our bike, Lex Griffin. He knows the best results come from the most raw of materials.

Lex doesn’t need a fancy gym to push himself to the limit and we don’t need a ton of fancy upgrades to make our bike stand out from the crowd….Just the determination to be different. A snakeskin dip here, a chunky tank or cut fender there, and you have something special indeed.
