The Detroit Round of the 2011 Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show features a strong crop of Baggers.
I hope you get a chance to listen to some of the video interviews of the MOD Harley entries as these competing Baggers are really mixing it up in MOTOWN. From Huck Hemphill’s 2007 Harley-Davidson FLTR to Jerry Motz’s 2002 Road King these bikes represent some of the loudest and proudest bikes on the tour to this point.
