Calling All Harley Dealers: Independents & Otherwise

AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building
AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building

All authorized Harley-Davidson dealerships as well as independent custom shops and builders are invited to enter the Modified Harley-Davidson class (indeed the FreeStyle and Performance Custom classes as well) at the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building to show their local riding community and the whole world what they can offer and achieve for their customers.

The mission is to promote customization best practice and standards, and to show riders of stock or near-stock Harley-Davidsons (late-model or otherwise) that stunning custom work does not need to be the exclusive preserve of ground-up/aftermarket v-twin builders.
