Jeremy Cupp From LC Fabrications Named “King Of Builders” At J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show Competition.

1jeremycuppThe largest traveling motorcycle builder competition in the U.S. featured the largest tour wide offering of cash and prizes and attracted nearly 400 custom motorcycles from coast-to-coast. The Inaugural U.S. Championship Round drew a big crowd at Chicago IMS on Valentine’s Day. Builders traveled from across the country, including select winners from past IMS Shows, to compete for prestigious ‘King of the Builders’ title.

The ‘King of the Builders’ is talented custom builder Jeremy Cupp from LC Fabrications who also led in the Freestyle and Sponsored (Street Chopper Magazine) categories for his bike called Seven. The elegant brushed steel bike brought Jeremy a total prize package worth more than $12,800 (cash and prizes). His work of art was the culmination of a two year journey from initial concept to final construction, with the majority of the parts handcrafted by himself. Inspiration for the build is the 1934 Harley-Davidson CAC Speedway Racer. It features a Buell Blast engine with a heavily modified Ducati head, a modified Triumph tranny in a hand-made frame and front end. (FYI, LC in LC Fabrications stands for his wife’s initials, a tradition he kept in the family after his father named his company also with the initials of his wife, Jeremy’s mom.) All other winners after the jump

    That bike has to be seen to appreciate all the work put into it. There were several really nice entries, but this one needed pillows around it for all the people that knelt down for a better look.

    I saw the bike in Cleveland, and although it is not something I would want to own, leave alone ride, I couldn’t help but admiring the skill and ingenuity that was behind the making of this bike. Very well done. As they said, you had to see it.

    When did speedway bikes become a “thing”? They’re not comfortable to ride in a 30 second race, let alone on the street. And why does it have a brake lever? Speedway bikes have no brakes. So he built a beautiful bike that can’t be ridden and isn’t accurate.

    That’s a BAD MAN!!!

    Mating a Buell Blast lower end with a Ducati top end? Damn, what a genius.
