    Rich, I have also a few old, crusty period modified bikes also. I had one judged for jollys and they quit at 65 points, handed me a list a mile long to fix. I laughed and said, "OK, sure". I ride them more than anything else. I fixed nothing and could care less what anyone thinks. I don't know if you have any swap meets in your area or the time to go, but I try to go to 3-4 per year. This is where I will pick up a part, even if it isn't year correct, to keep my junk on the road. Our chapter had it's first swap ever, in an area where there really aren't any and it was amazing how many people showed up and the deals to be had. The people that had million dollar parts sold nothing, the ones with usable oem fairly priced junk sold very well. We had almost 300 pay 5 bucks to get in. It blew my mind. All we did was put up posters and promote it on the internet, cost.....NOTHING.
    Good grief, Folks!

    Just move the Judging System completely online, and be done with it.

    If "they" have a burning desire to judge, they can damn well have their very own judging thread. Don't screw up the AMCA website with "perfect" museum pieces.

    So if it "screws" things up, burn the whole Judging System!

    Back to saving History instead..... .... ...

    PS: Somehow, just maybe,... I think we agree!

    The AMCA is a great organization, full of interesting, talented, wonderful people who love old motorcycles. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, and find out for yourself what this fantastic club can do for you, and your pursuit of your own dream of exploring ancient motorcycles. This is a good thread, and a good concept. It should be allowed to grow, morph, and be open minded to different ideas. In that spirit, I'm going to post pictures of what I've been working on this year.

    This is my '16J that I worked on earlier this year.





    This it my '11 Merkel that I've having a lot of fun with. I hope to have it running for the Sunshine Chapter meet in March of '17.





    This is my '48FL which I need to freshen up this week. I always ride a motorcycle to vote in a presidential election.

    Not as long as vintage motorcycling deserves much better, Eric.

    Just ask all who choose not to participate!

    And consider if they would.
