All these divisions will be judged and guided by the universal BBO rules by the usual stella cast of motorcyclism maestros on the day as well as the voice of the people with a choice award for the Pro and Race categories.

    Once all the global winners have been confirmed they will be posted to the global peoples choice voting site to decide the overall Global Winner (to be announced at this years EICMA in November).

    Locations of local events will be posted as they are confirmed.

    REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN - entry places are limited so register early to secure your position for your chance at the title. An entry fee of 25$ is payable on the day which will get your place in the grid and an event T-Shirt.

  3. The Rules & Judging

    1. Make the most with the least.
     
    2. The entry must run (ie. kick over and idle) and must be rideable.

    3. Display a level of creativity and ingenuity in design/function or construction.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    A panel of 5 esteemed judges from their respective countries will assess the entries based on how well they have met the defined rules/criteria. On the day, stage one judging will narrow the entry field to 30 bikes that will go into the main round of judging. From here the field will be further shortened to just the top 10 bikes. Out the of this group the judges will award the First, Second and Third place regional winners on the day. A People’s Choice Award will also be given out, which will be chosen by the punters!

    Bondi Pavilion, Bondi, NSW Australia

    In exciting news to hand BMW have decided to join our band of merry men for the Sydney component of the Deus Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off 2016, once again at the cultural icon that is the Bondi Pavilion, a stone’s throw from beautiful Bondi Beach. 

    As 6 time winners of the Dakar Rally, and pioneering the perfection of form and function since 1923 we thought BMW were the right partners - not afraid of looking backwards while riding forwards.
    Deus and BMW have enjoyed coexistence previously, collaborating on the custom RNineT Heinrich Manoeuvre in 2015 - see it at deuscustoms.com

    We’re delighted they’ll be joining in the fun of the Bike Build Off and welcome their knowledge of the flat-twin boxer and undoubtedly boundless enthusiasm.

    EVENT INFORMATION

    Builders will have the chance to show off their labours of love and creativity on the Saturday afternoon and evening of September the 24th, from 2pm – 8pm the bikes and bar will be open for one and all to enjoy.

    This year will include a very special category for the beloved Postie Honda CT110 plus an invitation only professional division.
