The winners to the 2011 United States Championship of the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Competition were crowned at the Daytona Progressive International Motorcycle Show during Bike Week 2011. With over 40 bikes entered, this was the most impressive display of custom bike building, craftsmanship, imagination and artwork seen yet. This elite custom motorcycle builder competition featured bikes from across the country including winners from previous Progressive IMS stops. The competition was fierce yet honest and three custom builders came away with the top prizes in their respective classes.

The purse for this show alone was $14,000. In addtition, HD GoPro cameras provided by Star and GYTR were given out to the Freestyle and Performance Custom winners while Harley-Davidson offered up a completely assembled 120 cubic-inch Screaming Eagle race engine for the winner of the Modified Harley class.

A previous contestant at our Novi show, Jack McCoy of RCC Sportbike brought his twin-turbo Suzuki B-King back to the Ultimate Builder competition, this time with a brand new paint job that put it over the top and gave it first place in Performance Custom category. His custom B-King features a1340cc Straight Four engine, a 21-inch front wheel and radiators relocated under the tail section

Trucking his bike across country, LA Speed Shop owner and builder Chris Richardson won the Modified Harley class for his 1947 Harley-Davidson FL featuring a 74 cubic-inch Knucklehead engine, Springer front-end and various one-off machined parts. The victory earned him the Screaming Eagle engine. The competition in the Mod Harley class was steep, but it was the one-off, handcrafted parts on Richardson's bike that put it over the top.

First time entrant to the competition with a bike that had never been shown before, Kenny Williams of KW Customs brought his spankin' new custom built bike called Tantalizer out to the show and took a very narrow win in the Freestyle class. This bagger has air ride suspension front and back, features a 127cubic-inch V-Twin engine and a 23-inch Performance Machine front wheel. Kenny received $6,000 in prize money as well as an HD GoPro camera from Star. It’s at the leading edge of custom bagger design.

The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows want to thank all of the competition’s entrants and congratulate the winners, each of which receive a free entry to the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in Sturgis this summer.
