Muscle Bike Build-Off rules: 2 classes as before, voted individually, Class 1 stays with the stricter rules from last year: Class 1: Will now be only for rebuilt and refurbished original muscle bikes or accurate reproductions of an original muscle bike in their original sizes. Period correct accessories are encouraged. Class 2: Will revert to the 2 out 3 rule: Must meet at least 2 of the following 3 criteria to be considered a Muscle Bike: 1: Rear tire larger than the front. (wider or taller or both.) 2: Banana seat. 3: Ape hanger bars. You can of course have all three. Time frame will be the usual 3 months: September 1st 2017 to December 1st 2017 Rule 1- Entire build must be done between 1st September 2016 and 1st December 2016, this is a 3 month build-off as per the main build-off, you are expected to start a build thread and post progress pics as you go, please don't just build away and expect to jump in at the last second with a finished bike, you can enter at any time before the deadline, but the build must not be finished when you enter.

Rule 3- Please add "Class 1" or "Class 2" at the start of your build thread title to show which class your build is in. Rule 4- Multiple entries from one builder are allowed, but they must have their own build threads and be entered for voting separately with a single bike voting picture. Guidelines: Please don't argue over the rules, there has been too much already. Please don't start questioning whether someone's build is a "Muscle Bike", if it meets the rules, it is fine. Please keep comments lighthearted and positive, this is a fun build-off, if you start causing trouble you might just get removed... Have fun builders!
