Look Ma, No Hands!
Got a project you've been meaning to get to? Want to try your hand at a build or restoration of your own? Join the 11th Annual Muscle Bike Build Off on RatRodBikes.com! https://ratrodbikes.com Every year contestants throw in their hats from all over the world. The contest keeps you focused, tests your skills, and gets quick answers to questions to help you cross the finish line! It starts September 1st! Want to know more? Ask away, I've entered for the last 10 years. Here's the rules:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 /Polo seat
3: Muscle bike appropriate bars
(Apehangers, Butterfly, Rams Horns, steering wheels, or any other weird variants, etc)

You CAN have all 3!!
  • Start a new thread in the forum’s Build Off section and use the bike name as the post “Subject/Title.” Keep a running journal in your thread about your build.
  • Must include before, progress, and finished photos (all in one thread please)
  • Progress documentation is mandatory! Sprinkling in a couple of photos will not suffice. Some form of documentation as things progress are expected to be produced. Lack of this key feature may find your build disqualified from voting. More is better
  • This is a build off NOT a bike show. Previously completed or mostly completed bikes are not eligible
  • Bike must be ride-able and pedal powered
  • The 2023 MBBO will begin at 12 am North American Central Time on September 1st 2023 and Final finished bike photos must be posted in the “Finished Bikes” threads by 12 NOON North American Central Time November 30th 2023
  • Any questions about the build off must be submitted in the discussion section.
  • Please be courteous to others and do not fill their build journals with off-topic posts. If it continues after a moderator warning, your account will be nuked.
This whole competition is all in good fun. The whole point is to be creative, build something cool and have fun!


Class 1: Super Stock/Mild Custom: Only for rebuilt and refurbished original muscle bikes, originals, or reproductions that represent “genre-correct” muscle bike traits and pay homage to their roots. Only minor frame changes are allowed (cutting off tabs, structural repairs, etc) Extensive frame mods including added tubes, or anything deemed to be above hobbyist level fabrication should go in class 2

Anything that bolts on, including forks, can be modified as much as you want.

Class 2: Super Modified, no holds barred, stretch, slam, built from scratch, do what you want as long as it is ridable and meets the 2 out of 3 criteria


Multiple entries from one builder are allowed, but they must have their own build threads and be entered for voting separately
