Show Class Magazine started this build-off, show, party, whatcha-ma-call-it back in 2013 and we helped them secure the location and pitched in as a sponsor. Over the years our involvement grew little by little until Justin called in February of 2019 and asked if we’d take the reigns entirely as the mag was shutting it’s doors. We weren’t about to let this celebration of grass-roots, democratic, motorcycle building fade away. Our intent is to follow their original guidelines and format and only make tweaks and changes that make the show better for the builders, spectators and sponsors.
 
Some great friends of ours have entered this competition over the years and many have gone on to big things in the motorcycle industry. Plenty have become Invited Builders at the Big Show or started shops in their hometowns. Here’s a list of the previous Champs:
