You can find some background information on our Custom King below..
Custom King, Derren Harper, has always had a passion for Harleys. His father, who was heavily into speedway and enduro racing, had a Harley® when he was growing up. Derren himself started riding bikes at just 5 years old and at 6 he began racing motocross. His passion for customisation comes from the belief that Harley is all about expressing yourself. He said: “Customising is important because the bike becomes an extension of who you are.”
Working with bike builder Robert Smith, Derren chose the Forty-Eight® for its vintage styling. The design was based on the halcyon days of the late 70s and the bike’s aesthetic was inspired by the glitter blue solo seat. The piece de resistance is the Stage Four Screamin’ Eagle® heads with race cams and a Vance and Hines Upsweep system to provide the ‘sleeper’ style shift that will surprise other riders.
