Ally Pally to Sturgis 2010 04/03/2010


Ace Cafe London, organisers of the recent, and a first in the UK, AMD Affiliated Motorcycle & Custom Show at Alexandra Palace, undertook to provide one prize of GBP 5,000 and, based on the extraordinary quality of the custom work seen in the modified Harley-Davidson class, Harley-Davidson UK agreed to provide a second prize fund of GBP 5,000 for an additional winning builder to be able to compete in the AMD Official World Championship of Custom Bike Building.
Ace Cafe London and the organising team behind the show wish to thank all who attended, visitors, exhibitors, sponsors and competitors, despite the weekends weather being from hell, for helping not only to make the show at Alexandra Palace an event to be proud of, but also for ensuring that for the first time, not one but two AMD affiliate show winners, a UK and an International competitor will have the opportunity to compete on the world stage during the 70th anniversary of the Sturgis Rally, USA where, since 2008, Ace Cafe London operates a remote location facility as part of AMD's Champions Park.
