~~ RETRO / Replica / Custom Build BMX PROJECTS ~~

 

For the purposes of the BOTY, we'll define the era of eligibility for this class as 2000 to present, though concessions may be made for earlier bikes with fitting attributes, that make them more at home here. The guidelines for submission are to be found here: RULES & GUIDELINES 2009

 

ADDITIONAL CRITERIA & INFORMATION ON THIS CATEGORY:

Bikes that would belong in this class are modern fabricated bikes that are modeled on old school bikes and have incorporated an old school aesthetic or were custom fabricated according to the entrant's imagination / customized vision. Bikes in this class are not bikes that actually existed historically. Examples of this would be bikes like the SE retro line, the Supercross made skunk works projects, certain Kappa or VRP (or other Sal made projects) or some of the bikes made by Knight. Other examples would include heavily altered examples of actual old school frame sets that have been customized with frame or fork modifications into a pit bike, a cruiser or anything other than it's original wheel base size. If you have a bike like this, it must be entered into the retro/fantasy class. Please do not enter a custom fabricated frame in the era designated classes.

 

 

 

Please follow the guidelines to the letter. Entries that break the rules will be deleted and you will have to re-submit. Also, take special note of the schedule for submission, cut off and voting.
