MK 17 New class Survivor & Rust
« on: February 04, 2017, 10:05 AM »
This is my baby  fistblump . I'm running it on the Saturday this year. There has been interest in the past but it's been dismissed as to hard to Judge . I will be outlining strict rules.There will be Trophies and medals as the SS classes.

It will be held in the main Marquee.

 This is to gauge interest at the moment .

Please support this as it's been muted for years but I'm prepared to take this on.

Cheers Steve Animal  :crazy2:

Why not have two sections... Total survivor and Survivor builds ?
Let's hope the entrants are honest enough to admit which class their bike falls into otherwise they may find themselves subjected to their very own " what a  :bellend: " thread for cheating.  :LolLolLolLol:

Is this category replacing the rider/well loved section or is that there as well? ( it might have been called something else? )

Can of worms indeed.
When I read this I immediately thought about putting my Laserlite together; a collection of 'survivor' parts but bought as a frame/fork/seatpost/handlebar and a few other handy parts. Other parts are from my box of bits or newly purchased.

Personally I think building a bike entirely out of survivor parts is much harder than building a restored or NOS build. Finding a collection of parts with similar patina and from the same era that isn't just a pile of "old stuff" takes time, but for me the end result just cant be beat. Really looking forward to this class and all the bikes in it.  :daumenhoch:

I really like this idea also, but needs more consideration of how to judge it, true survivor vs bike built with survivor parts. Either way, i'm sure there will be some crackers on show, I'll have a couple to include  ;)

This is a well overdue category - I know it is always a can of worms as to what constitutes a survivor but  a must.
