Voting will now open to the public, with the four most popular machines going on display at Motorcycle Live at The NEC, Birmingham from 18-26 November.

The semi-finalists have been selected from the initial entries, by an expert panel consisting of Motorcycle News deputy editor Richard Newland, Built magazine and Classic Bike editor Gary Pinchin and Bike Shed founder Anthony “Dutch” van Someren. Ace Builds was open to all exhibiting manufacturer brands and the shortlist includes a wide variety of machines, from café racers to bobbers and scramblers.
