Gurath walks away with the MOD Harley Award at Harley-Davidson’s 111th Anniversary

Milwaukee didn’t know what hit it when Harley enthusiasts mobbed the 3rd Annual Harley-Davidson Museum Invitational Custom Bike Pro Show in Harley’s hometown.

Magnificant custom rides were on display by builders from throughout the nation, revving riders’ desires to customize their individual sleds. Five former 1st place winners and 3 debut bikes were on display, a full 2M of custom sleds in one gorgeous hall.

Joel Gurath of Backbone Built Bikes entered his 2005 Harley-Davidson Softail old school style ride in an eye-popping green and black color combination. His big wheel front end, a one-off 26″ Christopoly MAD Wheel, coordinated with his rear one-off 18″ Solid MAD Wheel, and helped make his ride an eye-turner. His bike looked and sat right.

The engine is an H-D Twin Cam 955″, with 10.5:1 Forged Pistons, SE Heads, SE Cams, SE Push Rods, Compression releases, 45 Mikuni Carb, SE Clutch Kit, H-D Controls and stainless brakes. Sleek and beautiful, this is a bike begging to be ridden, and we all wanted to feel the power running down the road. Joel’s bike looks and sits right.

Harley-Davidson hosts the show in their seasonal climate-controlled tent called Chrome, with floor to ceiling glass windows. Three gorgous chandeliers light the custom sleds.
