CamTech Customs Wins Freestyle & Mod Harley @ Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show in Greenville, SC – Robbie Closson of CamTech Customs became the first competitor to win both Freestyle and Modified Harley classes at the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. Each show is a qualifying event at the AMD World Championship held each year during the Sturgis rally.

The Winning Freestyle Class Bike

Closson’s Freestyle winning Bagger is based on a 2010 H-D Road Glide and features a 26” Renegade front wheel, cut and raked frame and custom one-piece fairing. The body comes off like a Funny Car with the removal of 6 bolts and a quick disconnect fuel line. Closson integrated the body using sheet metal and fiberglass and attached it into the tanks and modified Bad Dad Saddle Bags.

The fairing started out as a stock Road Glide. The front nose was cut off and a Suzuki Hayabusa nose and headlight was laminated on. The fairing and wind screen are integrated into one piece.

The bike features a 124” mil with S&S valve train, fly wheel and Pro Charger. The blown engine runs 18lbs of boost and utilizes a modified D&D Performance Enterprises’ Fat Cat exhaust pipe to provide a linear horsepower curve and outstanding tone. The custom metal air dam holds the intercooler. Hawg Halters provides the controls and Dakota Digital the instrument cluster.

Runner-up in Freestyle went to Copper Mike Cole of Gravesend Cycles with a heavily customized 1952 Harley. Redneck Engineering took third place.
