Below are the judged categories you may enter your bike(s) into at the 2nd Annual Coaster's Ham Jam. If your bicycle could fit into more than one of the categories, please choose the category you feel your bicycle would compete best in.

Best Pre War Bicycle-
Your bicycle was manufactured before World War II. Major frame and part differences are characteristic of a Pre-war bicycle compared to a Post war Bicycle.

Best Post War Bicycle-
Your bicycle was manufactured after World War II. Please leave bicycles dating from 1970-Present out of this category.

Best Rat Rod Bicycle-
Your bike is built to be a Rat Rod. Most Rat Rods appear "unfinished" (whether they actually are or not), with just the bare essentials to be ridden. Sometimes the customization will include using spare parts, or parts from another bicycle altogether. Flat paint, patina/rust, and 30's era automobile hot rod design elements are common on rat rod bicycles.

Best Kustom Bicycle-
Your custom bicycle has a frame that is built specifically for the rider. It is a one off a kind with kustom geometry made just for the one person. It is not a "production" bicycle.

Best 60’s-70’s Muscle Bike-
Your Muscle bicycle was produced from the mid 1960s through the end of the 1970s. Banana seats, sissy bars, and ape hangers are very common characteristics of Muscle bikes.

Best Track/Fixed Gear Bicycle-
Your fixed-gear bicycle (or fixed-wheel bicycle, sometimes known as a fixie) is a single speed bicycle that has no freewheel, meaning it cannot coast, as the pedals are always in motion when the bicycle is moving.

Best Mountain Bicycle-
Your mountain bike or mountain bicycle is a bicycle created for off-road cycling.

Best Road Bike-
Your bicycle was built for traveling at speed on paved roads.

Best Vintage Bicycle Survivor-
Your bicycle sits as it was sold new in the bike shop with all original components. Routine, maintenance and upkeep of the bike does NOT diminish its status as a survivor. However, no part, whether painted, chromed, or anodized should be refinished in any way. Replacement of grips or tires is allowed, although discouraged, and should be the same type/brand as the originals. The best examples of survivors are time capsules of vintage bicycle goodness.

Best Early BMX Bicycle-
Your BMX bicycle is considered a BMX pioneer and was manufactured between the mid 1970 and 1982.

Best 1983-1989 BMX Bicycle (RACE) -
Your BMX Bicycle was manufactured between 1982 and 1989 and built for the purpose of racing.

Best 80s Freestyle Bicycle-
You BMX bicycle was manufactured in the 1980s for the purpose of freestyle and flatland tricks

Best Mid-School Bicycle-
Your BMX Bicycle was manufactured between 1990 and 1998 for any type of BMX riding: race, freestyle, flatland, etc.

Best New-School-
Your BMX bicycle was manufactured between 1999- 2012 for any type of BMX riding.

The Other Bike Award-
Your bicycle does not fit in any of the categories above, but you would still like to compete. No Trophies or prizes will be given for the best other bike but you and your bicycle will be recognized.

The goal is to make this the biggest spring show in the Southeast (with Smoopy's Bikes & Strikes being the biggest fall show wink.gif )

Lots of folks have already committed to be there - the graphic above is the t-shirt design, which was done by Jeff Troldahl ( to see more of his stuff). I think the shirts will end up being collector items just themselves. smile.gif

Also, we might be doing some live music... my band Superskunk may play smile.gif
We now have a flyer!
