J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder: Seattle Results

Utimate Builder Custom Bike SHow

Final Event of the 2013-14 Season

The start of the J&P Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show in Seattle was the beginning of the end of the 2013-2014 series. The 12 city whistle-stop tour completed at the Emerald City with a fine round of custom bikes representing uniqueness of the builders. Mother Nature was up to her old tricks with 50 mph winds and sheets of rain but that didn’t deter the enthusiasts from making it to “the” Powersports event of the year.

Urban Custom Cycles won the People’s Choice Award by a squeaker  with just one vote. They received a Bikernet Baggers Editor’s Choice Award, Bell Custom 500 helmet pinstriped by Skratch for their hard work.  The Rocking K Custom Leather’s chain wallet SHO DOG Award was won by Jacob of Urban Custom Cycles and Dana Meeks. The Garage Leathers’ Solo Bag SHO DOG Award was won by Mack Coldiron of Old School Products.

Program sponsors include Progressive Insurance and Harley-Davidson. Contributing Sponsors include Bell Helmets, Metal Rescue, Rocking K Custom Leathers and Garage Leathers Solo Bags. To see more images, check out our Flickr Biker Pros Gallery.
