Harley-Davidson announces winner of 2016 ‘Battle of the Kings’ Competition.
Harley-Davidson recently announced the winner of the 2016 Battle of the Kings competition, with the Harley-Davidson Athens dealership winning the ‘Custom King’ title with their bike ‘Nyx’, the ancient goddess of the night-inspired build. The bike competed as one of 12 finalists across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and was chosen by a panel of custom experts. The competition witnessed 211 dealers from across (EMEA) striving for the title of top custom bike builder for the 2016 winner-takes-all contest based on customizing the all-new Sportster®Iron 883(tm). The winning bike was developed by Paschalis Tsalamagkas and Yannis Kourougiaouris, who developed a café racer that took inspiration from the ancient greek goddess of the night – a shadowy figure of power and beauty. Viewed from the rear, the bike resembles a snake and from the front, a panther, both creatures of the night. The deep gloss black paint with hints of silver flake allude to a starry night sky.
