Tempting...


I am planning a Summer build anyways, only thing I'm not sure about is my tires, they are not era specific to the bike but they are all I have...

These tires on a 1991 bike, does that disqualify me?

Re: 2012 SUMMER OPEN BUILD-OFF, SPONSORED BY PLANETBMX.COM & BMXMUSEUM.COM

** THANKS GO OUT TO OUR SPONSORS: ED FROM PLANETBMX.COM, WHO  HAS DONATED SITE CREDIT FOR 1ST -3RD PLACE !! $100 / $75 /$50 RESPECTIVELY... AND THANKS TO GAry FROM THE MUSEUM FOR PUTTING UP (3) PRO MEMBERSHIPS AND T-SHIRTS FOR 1ST THRU 3RD PLACE !!**

***THIS THREAD IS FOR AN ENTRY PHOTO  OF YOUR FRAME AND FORK , PRE-BUILD. YOU MUST SUBMIT A PHOTO HERE TO BE ELIGIBLE. ALSO, YOU DID NOT NEED TO "CHECK-IN" ON THE LAST THREAD TO BE IN THE BUILD-OFF. **


**THIS THREAD WILL BE OPEN FROM NOW UNTIL 11:59 CST ON 4/29/2012**

*** COMMENTS NOW ALLOWED HERE !!!!! THE SUBMISSION THREAD WILL BE BIKES ONLY.


RULES/REQUIREMENTS:

1) This will be OPEN CLASS. 20"/24"26",Race,Freestyle,Cruiser, etc. The era will be 1995 and earlier. Your frameset MUST BE FROM 1995 OR EARLIER AND THREADED . No new school parts are allowed.  All parts should be from the era or be repops of era parts...i.e. Profile retros, new dia compes, etc... If its a copy of an era part, its OK. No Eastern seats or stuff like that..

2)  CREATIVITY IS KING. The judging will be weighted more toward a  thoughtful, creative, or innovative build over one that simply cost a lot.Be original. Build a bike how you think it should have been, or have a feature that was ahead of its time. You get the idea.. Your brain is the best tool you have, use it..

2a) THIS IS IMPORTANT!! NO factory spec, magazine ad,tribute or replica builds will be allowed. This contest is centered on coming up with an original bike that is thought through and assembled with craftsmanship in mind.That doesn’t necessarily mean high dollar will win, since it still could be a janky turd. You also CANNOT have this bike in another buildoff during the timeline... no doubling down..You also must build the bike within the contest,after all...this is a build-off.

2b) In your submission post, include a short explanation of your concept or thought process for the build. This could be key in an accurate scoring for your bike.

3) You may use an existing frame and fork, and it can be anything you like in the era requirements.(it can be pre, or post restoration,doesnt matter)

4) Tires may be authentic or be new.. NOTE: They must be a" type " that was used in the era..( copies of Comp ST, Comp III,IV, etc. are permitted. No Odyssey Aitkens' or any nonsense like that..

5)If you  do not fulfill  the requirements before submission closing, you will forfeit your entry.You may edit and make corrections during the submission time, even if it is already posted.

6) Multiple entries ARE permitted. But, they must be from different classes .e.g.  1- 20",1-24",race, freestyle...etc.

JUDGING
:

1) The judges will be anonymous, and have the final say in the results of the build off. There will be (4), two admin/mods and two members.

2) Each judge will assign a score to every bike from 1-10, the total of all judges for each bike will be added and that will be your score.The highest total from 1st to 3rd will be the winners.Any ties will be broken by judge debate.

3) Since this is an open class build off, the bikes will be judged on creativity, attention to detail, and overall concept .Cost will not play a factor, and rarity will only matter if it works with the concept.

As best I can tell this is a 91 Haro Sport.  I love 990's and had a relative weld the mounts on last year.  I never went any further with it but will now for this build off.  As for the direction I'll go...  that happens as I build - let's find out together. tongue

Cool,unless i build my king sting up for this build,it has been apart since the early 90's.So 24 or 26 for me.

If I can't find cranks I may be out. I'm running low on fun money and am after some 181mm Cook Bros cranks. I have a pair of 175mm Profile Retros I'll use if I can't find cranks in time.

Retros wouldn't be allowed.... Don't sweat it, you have lots and lots of time.

I am pretty interested in this Build-off but have a couple of questions. Would I be allowed to use things like repops or use 2 pinch flite cranks?
Thanks

As long as parts are from '95 and earlier, its ok... Tires may be new repop of old style... Like PC sells for example.

Re: 2012 SUMMER OPEN BUILD-OFF, SPONSORED BY PLANETBMX.COM & BMXMUSEUM.COM

I'll be entering my early 80's thruster vanishing point frame and fork. I have just received this in a trade and have been waiting to build it how I envision a sick bmx racing bike from the early 80's. Its hard to determine the year of this because these early thrusters did not have serial numbers.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile
