The final round of the 2019/2020 Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show has just wrapped, and the winning customs from the last stop on the IMS tour have been announced by the Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS). This last round produced another impressive group of standards, classics, and choppers - and even trikes - with the winners going on to compete for the King of the Builders prize held later in the weekend (we’ll post results of that in a separate story). Over the course of eight stops, the tour will have featured more than 300 top-shelf custom motorcycles and awarded more than $70,000 in cash and prizes.
