PICK YOUR CLASS
Bike Show Entry Class: (CLASSIFICATION)
We strive year after year to fairly classify each bike entry. In order to assist us, please use the following list to pre-classify your motorcycle and write it on your entry form (we will need the entry form, payment and bike photo). Your final classification (here after referred to as ‘class’) will be determined at the time you arrive at the show (based upon physical inspection, review by placement committee, and amount of entries received in your class). We want everyone to compete fairly, correctly and to enjoy an overall great experience.
Please note: ‘NO’ STOCK BIKE CLASSES
There will not be any Stock classes available for motorcycles less than 25 years old. After a lot of discussion and review from previous year’s shows, Stock was rarely Stock! Competitors had usually changed something, i.e. exhaust, chrome, etc… If you have entered Stock Class in the past you will be considered Mild Custom Class. We want to continue our goal of increasing the quality and variety of custom and antique motorcycles that enter into competition each year. Stock motorcycles (25 Years or Older) will be considered antique, which includes Metric, European and American Antique classes.
