~~ RETRO / Modern 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 2010. The winner of the retro and new school category does not vie for the over all title which is open to the Old School classes only. It's a self contained honor for this class only.

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 include all bikes that did not actually exist 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, or the new retro GHP's or the Skyway TA retros, the CW/Revcore retros, the Hutch retros (did those ever come out?), Mongoose KOS cruisers, the recent Haro release, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.. Essentially any enterprise that jumped on the bandwagon of releasing a bike based on old original era productions. Other examples of bikes belonging in this class 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 this Retro/Custom class. Please do not enter a custom fabricated frame in the era designated classes.

 

There are still other bikes like Fireman's Texas Cruzers that are not replicas of vintage bikes, but definitely have the old school vibe.  You can put those here too, though they might be considered modern new school in some cases. You decide based on your parts selection and the feel you were going for when putting it together.

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.

Thanks to  you guys, and ROC, for helping this dream come alive, as this frame became mine at last summers OS show. This beauty was among the pile of awsome frames ROC had brought down for sale. And I had been looking for a Race Inc, 24", when I saw this, and my plans changed. I allready knew it was going to be mine, and one hell of a 26" er...

Always wanted a vintage 'two-six' to ride and enjoy but didn't have the $3-5K it takes to pull one together. This is my favorite bike by far, so smooth, comfortable and predictable. Frame, fork, bars, stem ++ all made in the USA. I know the whole repro/retro/tribute subject is a sore one for many, the recently made parts are easily identifiable as such, and the vintage parts used were NOS or mint.This one will most likely go to my grave with me LOL. Before my wife got her Cannondale 29er, she put over 600 miles on this beast.
