17-25 November 2018 NEC
The UK's Biggest Motorcycle Show


Motorcycle Live has launched a search to find the best hand-built and customised motorcycles in the country. The four finalists – shortlisted by an expert panel, then voted for by the public – will be displayed at the 2017 show, which takes place at The NEC, Birmingham from 18-26 November.

Motorcycle Live Ace Builds is open to all exhibiting manufacturer brands and models – the only criteria being: the bike must road legal; it must have been built in the UK; it must be owned by the entrant and it must be a one-off creation that stands out from the crowd.

To submit an Ace Build, entrants are required to upload a selection of high-res images of their machine to the relevant manufacturer category at acebuilds.motorcyclelive.co.uk, with up to 200 words describing the build/customisation.

The closing date for entries is 29 September 2017, after which an expert panel – consisting of Motorcycle News deputy editor Richard Newland, Built and Classic Bike editor Gary Pinchin and Bike Shed founder Anthony “Dutch” van Someren – will select a shortlist of semi-finalists.

Voting will then open to the public, with the four most popular machines going on display on the Black Horse Stage at the heart of Motorcycle Live 2017. The four finalists will be announced on 1 November 2017, with the owners each receiving four tickets to Motorcycle Live and £200 of Motolegends vouchers.

The ‘Ultimate Ace Build’ will be decided by Motorcycle Live visitors, who will be able to vote for their favourite of the four finalists throughout the show. The owner of the winning machine will be awarded a special trophy, plus £1000 of vouchers and the chance for their bike to feature in a Motolegends catalogue.
