The J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show swept into the southwest for its show in Phoenix this past weekend as custom builders came from around the region to compete for over $8000 in cash and prizes.
- Second place in Phoenix's 'Freestyle Class' went to Caren Cooper for this 2012 Big Sky Bobber with a Springer front, open belt primary, rigid rear and chromed rims.
- Bill Nethercutt's 2008 Harley Street Glide was rollin' large in Phoenix, the bagger winning third place in the Ultimate Builder Freestyle Class. We love the aggressive design of the front fairing.
- 'La Pinche Negra' by Knucklehead Cycles, a 1986 Harley Softail with tall apes, thick spokes and a slammed back-end, earned first place in Phoenix's Modified Harley Class.
- Shannon Venturo's 2014 Harley Breakout garnered plenty of attention at the Phoenix Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, earning second place in the Modified Harley Class.
