Next Stop Germany

Winner of the FreeStyle Class is awarded $2,000 plus $7,500 AMD World Championship expense allowance to attend the championship in Germany.

The AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building (the ‘AMD’) is a unique custom bike competition.

The class structure has been carefully designed to reflect design and engineering considerations rather than personal styling choices and preferences as such.

The ‘AMD’ is intended to reward motorcycle design and engineering quality – with the premium being on originality and hand-craftsmanship. All builders must provide a ‘Run Test Video’ before their bike can compete.


Two dates to remember are:

  • LOAD-IN is on Thursday September 6th. 10AM-7PM
  • LOAD-OUT is Sunday, September 9th – 5PM

Customizing a motorcycle as an expression of your personal identity has been the essence of two wheel differentiation and satisfaction since the GI’s returned home in the 40’s.
