King of the Kings 2020

The Battle of the Kings becomes King of Kings!

This year Harley-Davidson is announcing a whole new competition!
It’s all about finding the winner of the winners, in which only the winners of the last years, i.e. the best of the best now compete against each other in an unprecedented contest!

The rules have also changed fundamentally, a current vehicle with a very limited budget had to be converted before, so this year a Sportster with an Evolution engine will serve as a basis no matter what year of construction. The most important rules are that the main frame must not be changed and the swingarm must remain functional.

2019 Harley-Davidson® Battle Of The Kings

 

 

 

LAIDLAW’S H-D® CLAIMS CROWN

We started with over 250 custom bikes globally and only 5 bikes went head-to-head to claim the Custom King crown at this year’s EICMA. Votes were cast throughout the world and Laidlaw’s Harley-Davidson® from the United States has claimed the 2019 Custom King title!

THE CUSTOM KING

When Laidlaw Crew Chief Keith Hurt builds a custom bike, he makes sure it’s more than simply a collection of parts.

“I like to get components, parts and accessories from other models of bikes and figure out how to incorporate them and make them fit on a different model,” he explains. “Like an update or upgrade to the original, as if the factory had made it that way in the first place.”

The team calls its bike the “FXGTS Coast Glide,” representing the different pieces and parts that make up the whole: “FX” for the dual-disc brake front end, with mid controls. “GT” for Grand Touring. “S” for the sport styling – “paying homage to the Sport Glide® model we started with.” And “Coast Glide” in honor of the famous highway nearby.

“Our project is a throwback to the FXRT styling with a Southern California twist, paying tribute to the Pacific Coast Highway and the Southern California influence on modern performance cruisers,” Keith explains.

As a concept, it covers a lot of ground. As a design, it’s far more than the sum of its parts. And as a 2019 Battle of the Kings entry, it’s definitely one to be reckoned with.
