Warr’s Crook chopper took 1st place in the British Harley Competition Battle of the KingsMarch 6, 2019
Warr’s British customizers guessed with the chopper and won first place in a public vote as part of the Harley-Davidson Battle of the Kings custom contest. They won the competition from the cool projects of other UK dealerships. The Crook Chopper led the vote, beating the Centenary Sportster and Forty-Eight Chop.
“I didn’t participate last year, which I was very sorry for,” said Charlie Stockwell, head of the custom department at Warr’s Harley. “This year did what it owes.”
Despite the boom in cafes racers and trackers, the winning custom bikes are made in the style of chopper.
Charlie explains: “Simple designs are boring, so I had to do something stunning. I wanted to return the glory of chrome. The S & S has a beautiful Grand 2v2 exhaust that we have not seen since the 90s. I wanted to show Harley in a new light, but also using elements of the styles of the 80s and 90s. I think that these are modern trends, and in the future we will see a lot of this.
New wave of harlevodov – 30-year-olds. They are interested in such motorcycles and the era when Arlen Ness began to make milled components. I like that style. Our approach is a little different. The project is limited by budget. Many things are very simple. The front wheel comes with a stock hub, because it is profitable for the money, but it strongly affects the overall perception. “
Further global selection is planned, in which the best projects from different countries will be presented. There will be a public vote, which will select the four best projects – they will compete with each other, plus a winner from the United States. The final of the competition will be held at EICMA 2019.
