J&P Cycles' Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Shows (UBCBS)

 

J&P Ultimate Builder Series - New York

Staged at the Jacob Kravitz Center during the New York Progressive International Motorcycle Show (December 6 - 8), the second of eight 2019/2020 season J&P Cycles' Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Shows (UBCBS) series saw George Stinsman of Chaos Cycle (Shirley, New York) scoop the win in the Freestyle Class with 'Chaos Cycle Café' - featuring an exhaust swingarm, custom gas tank, oil tank/fender, wheels and Chaos Cycle triple tree (valued at $40,000).
Celebrating its tenth successive year, the J&P Cycles sponsored UBCBS series is expected to feature some 300 plus custom motorcycles, with more than $70,000 up for grabs in cash and prizes. This year’s categories include Custom Classic, Custom Street, Freestyle and People’s Choice.
Judged by a panel of industry experts, winners in each city along the IMS tour will be invited to compete in the championship round taking place February 9, 2020 in Chicago for a chance to be crowned “King of the Builders.”
“Custom building is one of the most creative outlets our industry has to offer, and the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows offer the ideal platform for builders to showcase their work on a national stage,” said Bob Kay, Director of UBCBS. “Not only are the motorcycles strikingly ornate, but it’s an incredible opportunity for the motorcycle enthusiast community to learn about and appreciate the unique story behind the creation of each build.”
