Warr's has been customising Harley-Davidsons at their dealership in Chelsea, England, since 1924.

Head of design and custom bikes, Charlie Stockwell, is highly regarded in his field and has a high-profile client list which includes former Formula 1 World champion Jenson Button.


Fortunately, the company says, you don't need an F1 driver's salary to afford a Warr's custom bike.

According to Warr: "A lot can be achieved for those with smaller budgets but looking for something a little different. If you prefer unique to standard use your imagination and let Warr's Customs get to work for you.

"Fast forward a few weeks and you could be riding down the King's Road on your very own King's Road Custom."

Stockwell commented: “We are really looking forward coming back to Salon Prive. The event is firmly established as the UK's most prestigious supercar and motorrcycle show and the concours d'elegance is a calendar highlight for enthusiasts, collectors and buyers of modern and classic supercars and bikes.”

The 2013 Salon Prive will run from September 4 to 6.
