    I realize that it's some ancient off-road BMX-type thingee, but it does have a loaf-style seat and it is most certainly muscular. It might be fun to add ape-hangers, etc to achieve that muscle-bike look. So the question is; "Can I enter it in the MBBO?"

    If you meet the rules, any bike can enter.

    Looks like if you keep the seat and add apes you should be all good for class 2.

    That would have been a great one for the mx class that was talked about. I would leave that original.

    I agree. Don't waste that bike on the MBBO. Keep it original and restore it!

    Very good points. My original plan was to overhaul it, add fat knobbies and number plates and leave it alone. Maybe I will.
