A new date for the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective submissions

"We went through the entries so far, and there are over 50 chopper entries, cafe racers and tracker/hooligan bikes are lacking submissions. Let's get those cafes, tracker/hooligan entries up!! The Greasy Dozen Builder Collective is back! Who's ready?! Do you have a build that's been collecting dust? It's time to dust that bad boy off and get it back on the road. What better way to do it than by throwing your hat in the ring for a chance to be a Greasy Dozen Builder and receive support from our rad sponsors!

First off everyone always wants to know what they will get or how the winner is chosen. So let's clarify a few things it's not a competition all 12 selected builders get support via gift cards. So there are technically 12 winners.

Who can win? We focus on garage builders and small shops with two employees or less. This year we are specifically looking for stalled projects that need that final push of motivation and some parts provided via gift cards from by our generous sponsors. We want to help people finish builds where life got in the way. You will have about five months to complete your build in time to attend the run. (Details to come about the run)

What you win is gift cards from a long list of great companies that have supported the #greasydozenbuildercollective to name a few @biltwell, @lowbrowcustoms, @ledsledcustoms, @indianlarrymotorcycles, @chopcult, and @sscycle. Since year two we have used gift cards because it's much easier logistically for the winners to pick exactly what they want from the sponsors and it's in tune with the idea that the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective has always been about giving something directly back to the average joe that supports these companies. We have given away over $30,000 in prizes this way and while its work to put it on its a labor of love to give something back to the motorcycle community."- Old Bike Barn

HOW TO ENTER:
There are three categories: Chopper, Cafe Racer, Hooligan
1. Share this post and follow @oldbikebarn & @thegreasydozen
2. Post a shot of your build in its current state with #greasydozenselection
You have until December 23rd to enter.

More Mert . . .

He looks tiny on this thing.  Not a real big guy anyway, just stocky and strong.  Looks like it's got aluminum rims?   Anyone know what sauce pan they used to make air-cleaners out of ???  A guy told me once, and I should have wrote it down.
