After an impressive third place finish in the Modified Harley-Davidson Class at the AMD World Championships in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 11, 2011. Shaw Harley-Davidson’s Bell & Ross inspired custom built Nascafe Racer will go on tour in the U.S. starting September 29. Find the dates and locations and wallpaper of the custom Harley inside.
The bike was a crowd pleaser during its debut at the International Custom Bike Show at the Alexandra Palace in London in February, 2011 where it was first runner up. It won first place at the Irish International AMD Custom Bike Championship in Dublin this past March and was first runner up at the Bournemouth International AMD Custom Bike Championship in May, 2011.
The custom bike is based on the Harley-Davidson FXSTB Softail Nightrain, one of the more radical Softails. The motorcycle was constructed in the Speed & Custom workshop of the East Sussex dealership. A BR 01-92 Carbon watch was mounted in a handcrafted center console using a machined section of aluminum. A combination of anodized blue, carbon and stealth-like matte black custom paint was used on the bike to reflect the timepiece.
“We wanted to mirror the Bell & Ross timepiece wherever we could on the motorcycle and to ensure that the essential piece was never compromised by superfluous design or items,” said Steve Willis, Shaw Harley-Davidson Sales Director and Head of the Speed & Custom design wing of the dealership.
“We were immediately excited by this project, explains Bruno Belamich, designer and co-founder of Bell & Ross. We identified with the values embodied by Harley-Davidson, values that we share such as the search for adventure, precision and the extreme.”
The award-winning custom Harley will be displayed at the following locations:
• September 29th at Traditional Jewelers in Newport Beach, California
• October 14th at Hyde Park Jewelers in Denver, Colorado
• October 21st at King Jewelers in Nashville, Tennessee
