Bike Show Awards:

The Bike Show portion of our Rally is NOT an only British Show, but a Vintage Motorcycle Show. We encourage entry of any vintage machine of any condition that’s European, American, Japanese or British. There are classes for Competition and Custom Motorcycles as well. New Modern Classics (1996+). Scooters are also welcome. You may also display your vintage motorcycle without having it judged. Our goal is to present as many vintage machines as possible for our guests and to keep the enthusiasm for this hobby alive and well!

Judging takes place on Sunday of the Rally weekend and is comprised of a Concours-style placing system mixed with an AMCA inspired point system. Bikes are judged in different categories of fit, finish, condition, accuracy, quality, body, engine and function. A numerical score is determined and compared to other motorcycles within a class or region. Our judges are experienced vintage motorcycle enthusiasts and do their best to judge accurately and fairly.
