Custom Bike Build Championships 2015

You are here

*UPDATE ON PRIZES* Winner of each category receives a Trophy and 1000AED Voucher courtesy of Strokerz Middle East

Gulf Bike Week is again proud to present the Middle East Custom Bike Build Championships, coordinated by world-renowned industry judge Frank Sander from Germany. For the first time, this year bikes will be on display at the show on Friday and Saturday.


All bikes need to be registered and in place before the show opens each day on the Friday and Saturday, and must remain in place until the show closes on Saturday evening so that everyone can enjoy them.

If you want, you can remove your custom bike on the Friday evening or place it in a designated Pit Garage, but you’ll need to have it back on display on Saturday morning, otherwise you won’t be eligible for the competition results.
We are expecting hundreds of bikes to be entered in to the competition, with winners receiving trophies, and of course recognition from your peers.
