Sky Valley Motorcycle Show Classes

Enter Your Bike

Got yourself a show bike? Crazy Chop? Best around? Righteous Hog, Classic Brit, Trike? Or just the badest ratbike we’ll ever see this side of Hades? Bring it down and let’s see it parked on Main Street.

This is a ride-in Bike Show. Anyone can enter any number of bikes (at $15 each), provided you ride each bike into the show registration area. Everyone at the show can vote for their favorite bike for People's Choice Best of Show, but please only vote one ballot slip!

The decision of the show judges is final.

Show Categories

250cc and under

Any motorcycle with an engine displacement of 250cc or less. Examples: Honda Dream, or Harley Davidson Hummer.

Antique /Vintage (pre-1983)

The Antique Motorcycle Club of America defines antique as at least 35 years old. The Antique Historic Motorcycle Racing Association defines Vintage Motocross as pre-1975 and Vintage Superbike as pre-1982. For this show, any motorcycle built in 1983 or earlier. Motorcycles may be restored or in existing, as found condition.

Classic (1993-1998)

Classic is a largely unofficial term, but this one is used more to determine style than year. Where a vintage bike is just old, the term classic generally refers to bikes that have stayed more original, rather than custom. Most agree that 20-25 years old is classic.


Any motorcycle manufactured in a European country, including the United Kingdom. Examples: BMW, Ducati, and Moto Guzzi, Triumph and Norton.


All motorcycles manufactured in Japan or by a Japanese company, such as Honda or Suzuki.

Customs are defined as motorcycles that have been altered from factory specs or custom built. The type and number of modifications to your bike determine which of our 3 Custom Classes your bike belongs in. Modifications may include paint, engine, frame, suspension, fenders, side covers, fuel tanks, lights, handlebars, wheels, exhaust and brake systems, etc. Bolt-on items count toward a total number of modifications. 3 individually classed bolt-on items equal one modification.

Example 1: A stock bike with custom-gel pad seat, bolt-on windscreen, bolt-on mirrors, bolt-on foot pegs enters as Manufactured Custom because this is 4 items (1 modification + 1 bolt-on).

Example 2: A stock bike with custom-gel pad seat, bolt-on windscreen, bolt-on mirrors, bolt-on foot pegs, stroked 124-inch motor, powder-coated frame, and custom paint with graphics enters as Mild Custom because this is 7 items (2 modifications + 1 bolt-on).
