WE would like to thank everyone for their hospitality, friendship and companionship over the weekend at the BIGTWIN show in November 2015.

There were great custom bikes on display, showing the very best in Europe and the UK. We were very honoured to be able to present Harrison BILLETs Trophy and prize to our favourite bike in the whole custom show. The decision was extremely difficult, but we could not have chosen a more deserving Winner

Piet Smits of Smits Custom Choppers, The Netherlands.

We are also proud to announce that Piet with some of his fellow BIGTWIN Winners, will be on display in London at the MCN Excel London Custom Bike Competition & Display - 12 to 14th February 2016. We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you Janine & Peter Harrison BILLET
