Custom Bikes Of The Week: Best of The No Show






The global pandemic hasn’t just shut down big events like Intermot and EICMA?a slew of grassroots custom shows have hit the pause button too. To help fill the void, Harley-Davidson put on The No Show, a weeklong Instagram-based showcase of top class builds.
H-D pulled their entries from the canceled Mama Tried, Congregation and Born Free shows, with a few international wild cards in the mix, totaling 60 bikes from the USA and abroad. Each bike was posted to Harley’s Instagram account with a walk-around style video from the builder.
Bike EXIF was asked to join a small judging panel to pick the Media Choice Award winner. Alongside myself on the panel were American Iron’s Steve Lita, and my good friend Morgan Gales from Cycle World.
Here’s a look at the bike that took home that award, along with seven other builds that caught our eye.

Winner, Media Choice Award: 1963 Panhead by Ben ‘The Boog’ Zales To pick the Media Choice Award winner, each judge first came up with a shortlist, before we all hopped onto a group call to hash things out. As we ran through our individual picks, it quickly became clear that our tastes were vastly different.
In the end, there was only one bike that landed on all of our lists: this luscious 1963 Panhead from Ben ‘The Boog’ Zales.

The fact that this build is almost entirely metallic paint and chrome, with a tiny seat and an even tinier fuel tank, is completely by design. Ben created it as a nod to the show bike era of the 60s; deliberately ?all show and no go.? But the overall effect is so cohesive, and the details so well executed, that it’s impossible not to love. Take note of how the tiny fuel tank (which Ben reckons holds enough fuel to get you to the next gas station) tapers and flows almost seamlessly into the frame, where a special junction has been shaped. Then notice how the seat reflects that shape back. Lift the seat up, and you’ll find that same teardrop effect in the custom-made oil bag, which is repeated again on the kicker pedal.

Ben [above] had some help: Dalton at Split Image Customs built the girder front end, and a friend, Mark, handled paint and the frame and tank molding. The front end is brakeless, leaving both the front wheel and the cockpit extremely barebones, since the bike also runs a foot clutch and a suicide shift (adorned with a crystal shift knob).
The amount of detail work is staggering, with highlights like a pop-up gas cap, and a rear fender stay that flares out to hold the exhaust. The H-D No Show was packed with good-looking motorcycles, but Ben’s Panhead was one of the few that we wished we could have seen in person.

Winner, Harley-Davidson Museum Award: 1940 Knucklehead by Christian Newman This Knucklehead also caught our eye?and the eye of Bill Davidson, and his team at the Harley-Davidson Museum. It features an all-stainless steel custom frame and fork, with a pretty trick oil-in-frame system, and a number...
