CLASS DEFINITIONS

Best Restoration

These are bikes that are painstakingly restored to their original condition.  Considerations include paint, mechanics & accessories original to the bike when produced.

Best Survivor

These are un-restored motorcycles that represent the period of the date of manufacture.  Sure, there may be non-original parts on the bike or a backyard paint job, but the bike as a whole should represent what one could find around the period of the motorcycle's production.  Synonyms include "barn find", "original", and "old hunk of junk"

Custom/Modified

Race Inspired

Any motorcycle, of any age, that represents the development of a bike to make it perform to its max.  Road, dirt, street, OEM.  Home builds to production factory race bikes.

Daily Driver
