Leading custom tire manufacturer AVON has signed a multi year agreement to be Freestyle Class sponsor at the 2018 and 2020 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building - the winner will be the 'Avon World Champion Custom Bike Builder'.

One of the oldest motorcycle product manufacturers of any kind in the world, Avon traces its origins back to 1885. The company entered the motorcycle and sidecar tire market in 1911.

Always an avid supporter of motorsport, Avon's dominance in motorcycle racing was historically so great that in its 1957 to 1963 'Glory Years' every solo world champion, including legendary Britons John Surtees and Mike Hailwood, rode to victory on Avon motorcycle tires (Surtees remains the only man to have won World Championships on two and four wheels).

In the 1970s Avon's reputation as the custom motorcycle tire of choice was cemented through its association with industry legend Arlen Ness - an early adopter of Avons for his custom builds, and still an Avon enthusiast. Avon Venoms quickly became established as the preferred option for custom bike builders worldwide.
