What happens now is that our distinguished panel of judges – Paul from Zodiac, Vic and Lin Jefford from Destiny Cycles, Murrells from the National Chopper Club committee, Larry Houghton from Lamb Engineering, and Dutch from the Bike Shed – will decide which’s their favourite in each class, and the one with the majority vote in each’ll be chosen as the winner in that category.

Those five’ll be the ones that go on to be the stars of the show at the BSH Custom Heroes display at Motorcycle Live (16-24th November), at the NEC in Birmingham, where, on the first Saturday of the show, there’ll be a presentation ceremony with trophies, prize money, fizzy plonk, and bacon sarnies which you, dear reader, are more than welcome to attend… although we can’t guarantee you’ll get the fizzy plonk and bacon sarnies unless you get there early enough to get yourself in position.

See you there!

Huge thanks to Motorcycle Live, and Zodiac, for sponsoring this year’s Championship, and thanks to all who entered their bikes in the various shows around the country. Cheers!
