ROCOMAMAS PRESENTS THE CUSTOM, VINTAGE, CLASSIC & RETRO MOTORCYCLE CHAMPIONSHIP AT KYALAMI GRAND PRIX CIRCUIT 25-27 MAY 2018
The SA Bike Fest, powered by Discovery Channel, is thrilled to announce the return of the successful Custom Bike Championship to the third fun-fuelled rendition of the festival, which takes place at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit from 25th – 27th May 2018.
Next year, the team look forward to welcoming back the return of feature sponsor, #RocoMamas, dubbing the championship with a new twist that comes from the obvious synergy – “custom bikes, custom burgers” –
THE ROCOMAMAS CUSTOM, VINTAGE, CLASSIC & RETRO CHAMPIONSHIP
After two years of incredible builds and custom creativity, the team are changing things up to include more classic and retro categories and are looking forward to yet another nationwide search for the very best restored, maintained, hand-built and customised motorcycles. The 2018 categories have been finalised and all builders and classic bike owners are encouraged to register as soon as possible to save their spot on the viewing deck inside the Kyalami Pit Building. The top 60 motorcycles chosen will also get two-laps around the circuit before positioning the bikes indoors, undercover, secure and protected from the elements for the full three days.
The SA Bike Fest team is thrilled to welcome back Frank Sander, international judge and builder from Germany, alongside local experts, Robert Coutts, Phillip Solomon and Cor Leijenaar from the 2 Stoke Club to assist with judging the classic, retro and vintage categories.

The public vote prize aptly named the People’s Choice Trophy also returns for 2018. This award is simple and minimalistic – a single builder, a group of engineers OR a whole club can compete as long as things remain private. Workshops or companies will not be considered for this award. The costs for customisation including the base may not exceed R60 000 and work time will not be taken into account, as the journey is the reward. Judges ask that the motorcycles need to be ridden and festival visitors will be asked to judge the People’s Choice award.
Prize giving will take place on the main stage at the festival at 3pm on Sunday 27 May.
Entry to the competition is FREE and the top sixty bike-owner’s chosen will receive all weekend passes to attend the festival at their leisure.
