Jordan Dickinson Wins AIMExpo & Heads to Germany

Dickinson heads to 2018 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in Germany

Dickinson’s trip to Orlando ended up being highly successful, as the Minnesota native earned the coveted automatic qualifier for the 2018 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in Germany.

The Knucklehead

The Knucklehead took a year to complete and is full of hand-made parts.

Dickinson’s Harley-Davidson inspired “Knucklehead” build out of his Union Speed & Style shop in Minneapolis took home top honors in the Freestyle Class, for which the World Championship qualifier is awarded. Additionally, Dickinson took first place in the Retro Mod class with his 1951 Harley-Davidson Panhead known as “Frost Buzzard.”

Amidst all the buzz and excitement surrounding the wide array of new products and introductions at the Fourth Annual American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) was North America’s finest collection of custom bikes from the continent’s most talented builders.

A total of 40 entries from 32 builders were spread across four classes of competition at the annual Championship of the Americas, with Jordan Dickinson, Bryan Fuller, Adam Karns and Jesse Spade each earning first-place honors for their respective builds.

    “I’m pretty ecstatic right now. I’m just trying to let it all set in,” exclaimed Dickinson upon earning his pair of first-place trophies. “[The Knucklehead] took between nine months to a year to complete and is full of hand-made parts. The only part of the bike that is genuine Harley-Davidson is the front end. We wanted to build a concept from the 30’s and 40’s as if Harley was making a race bike back in the day.
