The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows is set to host the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Competition: United States Championship at Ocean Center Daytona Beach, Wednesday, March 9 to Friday, March 11. The competition will feature winners from previous stops on the tour, as well as local custom bikes from the Daytona Beach area. Top winners will receive up to $6,000 for first place in class.
From New York to California, more than 300 custom builders have competed in the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Competition for a piece of the $90,000 cash purse prize.
