Established as the most sought after Custom Bike Industry status symbol there is, the Championship Ring for the 7th annual Official World Championship of Custom Bike Building has just been finished.
Made for the event in the Black Hills of South Dakota by Legacy Jewelers in 14 ct gold with a center-piece 1 ct diamond, the attached pictures
show the ring being cast last week
and the craftsman-finished final item.
Roger Goldammer of Canada has three World Championship Rings, and last year Dave Cook of Milwaukee added the first US Builder’s name to a line-up of winners that includes Chicara Nagata of Japan (2006) and Stellan Egeland of Sweden (2007).
Who will it be this year?
At this time some 80 bikes are pre-registered for competition. You can see them all, and see the Partner Pick of Excellence awards, at the ‘Partner Night’ Industry VIP Party starting at 7:30 pm on Sunday, August 8th.
