Harley Challenges Dealers to Build the Baddest Sportster in 2017 Battle of the Kings

The Harley-Davidson “Battle of the Kings” has commenced, and in the end, to borrow a line from the Highlander, “There can be only one!”

The Battle of the Kings is an international competition between Harley-Davidson dealers to build the baddest Sportster around. Dealers have the option of customizing an Iron 883, Forty-Eight, or Roadster Sportster. It’s pretty much anything goes as far as customization goes, the major stipulation being budget. They must “craft a custom-built Iron 8883 for £12,995 ($16,379) or a Forty-Eight or Roadster for £14,995 ($18,899).” The public gets to vote for “The New King” from more than 200 custom Sportsters entered in the competition.

Granted, “The Battle of the Kings” is taking place overseas, but it’s fun to see what others are doing in the custom realm. It demonstrates the versatility of the Sportster and it’s run by America’s premiere motorcycle manufacturer, so we deemed it worthy of sharing.

Here’s a few examples to enjoy courtesy of Harley-Davidson Battle of the Kings. To see more super cool Sportsters, go to customkings.harley-davidson.com
