KICKBACK supports engineering & design excellence

Posted on


KICKBACK #8 takes place at Stoneleigh Park Exhibition Centre in Warwickshire from 16-17th April. The KICKBACK Show will feature a stunning and unique collection of custom-made motorcycles.

As well as a fine showcase of modern-retro custom motorbikes KICKBACK is also hosting the definitive competition dedicated to engineering & design excellence: the National Championship of Custom Bike Building.

There are six categories in the National Championships:

1. Young Builder (supporting the under 30s)

2. Raw Freestyle (no rules except the bikes must be unpainted, in the raw)

3. Cafe Racer / Street Tracker (in the modern-retro style)

4. Old School Chopper (trad/rad chopper, bobber etc from before 1990)

5. Performance Custom (streetfighter / road burner style)

6. Street Cub (Honda Cub based customs)

Then a special prize for Best in Show.

For the KICKBACK National Championships to justify its position as the UK's definitive awards for engineering & design excellence, only the finest custom masterpieces will be competing. Meanwhile, the judging panel certainly matches this very high standard and includes Larry Houghton (Lamb Engineering), Pete Pearson (Rocket Bobs) and Paul Milbourn.

Only three British custom bike builders have ever finished in the top 5 in the AMD World Championships (Freestyle) and they are Larry, Pete and Paul! We have all three on the judging panel again!

KICKBACK #8: Motorbikes. Engineering. Design. Lifestyle. Art.
