The 2023 event will open up in November 2022. Please click "Email Me When Available" to receive an email update when entries are available. Full contest guidelines will be posted when the contest opens up on November 1st. This contest is for bikes being built from November 1st, 2022 through April 30th, 2023, so start looking for a project bike now so you’re ready to start building in November.

The format for this years event is a head to head style tournament.

-Once all of the submissions are reviewed, the top 32 builds will be selected to move into qualifying for the tournament.

-Qualifying will be voted on by the public, and positions 1-16 will move into the tournament. 

-From there, contestants will be matched up head to head. Our panel of judges will vote to determine the winner of each bracket. Each winner will advance until an overall winner is determined.

Bracket matchups will be determined by seeding, with #1 seed going against the 16th seed, 2nd seed vs. 15th, and so on. 

This is open to any motorcycle, any age, and any location. 

Every entry receives a "Broke To Built" sticker, and 10% off their next order through Pryme. Please enter your mailing address upon checkout to receive a sticker.

Absolutely no refunds. All entries are final.

This contest is all about having fun, building cool bikes, and creating a community around building motorcycles. If you are someone who whines and complains if your bike doesn't win or make it into the finals, please don't enter this contest. It is a contest after all, and there will be people who win and those who do not. Win or lose, we're all here to have fun!

Here are some common questions that have popped up:

Can I enter if my bike is currently in parts?

You may enter into the contest, but you must film your "before" video at the current point you're at. As long as your entry videos fall within the requirements, you're good to go!

Keep in mind, this is a transformation contest and it may not be judged upon well if we don't have a good idea of what your bike looked like beforehand. If your bike is in boxes, make sure you lay out the parts in good lighting. We can't tell what your bike is if it's in a dark corner of your shed.

What if I built my bike last year?

This contest is only for bikes that are being built from November 1st, 2022 through April 30th, 2023.

I have a before video from two years ago, can I use that?

No, you MUST film your before video at your current point.

How much work can I do to my bike?

You can do as little as install a new graphics set, or go as far as doing a complete tear down and restoration. There are no limits on what you can do, it's all up to your imagination!

Can I enter if I only have pictures?

No, only video entries are eligible. A photo slideshow in a video format does not count.

Is my bike eligible?

This contest is open to any motorcycle of any year, and in any condition. As long as your entry videos fall within the requirements, you're good to go!

How will my bike be judged?

Your build will be judged purely on transformation. No matter whether it's an MX bike or a woods bike or enduro, every bike will be looked at equally. 

Do I have to be over 18 and in the United States?

Entries are open to anyone and everyone!

How much can I spend?

You can spend as little or as much as you'd like on your project.

Do the videos have to be high quality?

Video quality does not matter, just as long as we can see your bike clearly. Feel free to use your cell phone. Show the bike in good lighting to give yourself the best chance.

What type of bike can I enter?

Any motorcycle is welcome! Sorry, no ATVs or UTVs.

Can I enter more than 1 bike?

Yes, you may enter more than one bike but you will need to purchase an entry for each bike. Only one bike per entry.

Can I sabotage my bike to make it look worse?

The panel of judges are smart guys that work on bikes for a living, we know what wear and tear looks like. Taking a hammer to your bike beforehand is only going to hurt your wallet and your chances of winning.

When does the contest begin?

This years contest runs November 1st, 2022 through April 30th, 2023.

When does the contest end?

The contest ends April 30th, 2023 at midnight.
