Ultimate Builder Results: Atlanta GA

Ultimate Builder Produced by Biker Pros

Atlanta was about paint

From ‘Busas to Harleys, high-end custom paint was the theme of the show. Enthusiasts were treated with some of the most outstanding designs and creativity seen on the circuit.

Ultimate Builder Show #3

The Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show rolled into inclement weather for the Atlanta edition of the show. Even so, hearty enthusiasts made their way into the venue to see the latest from the OEM manufacturers and then got blown away by custom sleds on display.

Ultimate Builder FreeStyle Class
Rich Worley of American Biker took the premier class at the Atlanta Edition of the Ultimate Builder with his custom Steampunk Shovel. It’s a 2012 custom with a 1978 Shovelhead. Paint by Chirs Minichiello. It features a circuit breaker ignition, flame thrower exhaust and brass accented parts. Engine upgrades include Delcron cases with dual plug heads, port and polish.
