Six classes to showcase young, rising talent and the wild creativity of experienced creators
Next year’s IRF22 will gather riders from all over Europe and beyond to enjoy an action-packed weekend close to the historical city centre of Budweis (České Budějovice). As part of the festival from June 10th to 12th, custom builders and Indian Motorcycle dealers are invited to present their most exhilarating customised Indian Motorcycle and celebrate the design versatility of the Indian Motorcycle brand and its rich history.
The contest is committed to showcasing the talent of young, rising talent and the wild creativity of experienced custom creators. With six classes to choose from, there are plenty of options for builders and painters to showcase their exceptional craftsmanship to riders from more than 30 countries. All entries are welcome with creativity encouraged for entirely transformed bikes, insane custom motorcycle concepts, unusual design projects, or spectacular masterpieces. The only limits are the designer’s imagination and engineering skills. However, the motorcycle must run, be rideable, and should preferably be road legal in the European Union, or at least the country of original registration.
All participating bikes will be presented at the Indian Motorcycle village close to the main stage where a judging panel will assess them in six distinct classes.
• Indian Scout / Bobber
• Bagger 23″
• 2022 Indian Chief
• Indian Thunderstroke 111 – 116
• Indian FTR Flat Track Style Scrambler
• Custom paint / Airbrush Master
The international jury members will also choose one builder for the grand winner of “Best in Show”.
Whether it is a first build or the latest work from an established builder in the custom scene, entries should be submitted as early as possible by using the form at:
The closing date for entries is Tuesday 31st May 2022 and there is no entry fee.
