Registrations are now open for the third edition of the Budweis Custom Indian Motorcycle Show (BCS) where passion, creativity, and the roar of engines come together in a celebration of two-wheeled artistry. The AMD-Approved event, and the only custom show to be 100% dedicated Indian Motorcycle, builds on the success of last year and promises an even grander spectacle with the entirety of hall R1 dedicated to the custom show during the Indian Riders Fest in České Budějovice (Budweis), Czech Republic, from June 13 to 16, 2024.

“There isn’t much in life that gets me more excited than a custom motorcycle show. As a designer and custom builder, I really feed on that creative energy. With the BCS totally focussed on Indian Motorcycle, it is a standout event for me. As a long time Indian Motorcycle fan from way back as a kid, the growth of this show in such a short time is food for my soul. The 2023 class winners were exceptional, and I’m looking forward seeing the creativity and ingenuity infused in metal, chrome and paint at BCS24,” said Ola Stenegärd, Director of Product Design for Indian Motorcycle

BCS24 is not just a display of chrome and steel; it is a celebration of the extraordinary craftsmanship of European custom bike builders and Indian Motorcycle dealers. Committed to fostering a community of creativity, the BCS welcomes builders of all levels, from aspiring rookies to seasoned veterans and with more exhibition space than ever before, the highly anticipated event promises an eclectic collection of innovative, and skilfully crafted motorcycles.

With its importance in the global custom scene recognised by American Motorcycle Dealer magazine conferring their approved show status to the BCS for a second year, the international judging panel is also bolstered by Brian Klock, President of Klock Werks, joining as President of the Jury. Inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2012, Brian Klock is a standout name in the industry and is acclaimed as the “Godfather of Baggers” with a plethora of awards and a long association with Indian Motorcycle.

During the 2023 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Klock confirmed his acceptance of the Presidency saying, “Indian Motorcycle is near and dear to my heart. Having been part of the aftermarket advisory team since 2014 and designing many of the limited editions coming out of the factory, just like Ola, a custom show dedicated to Indian Motorcycle is something I’m really excited about. I cannot wait to meet everyone at Budweis next year and see their craftsmanship and incredible skills.”

Klock, his wife Vanessa, and other dignitaries including Stenegärd and Onno Wieringa, Official AMD World Championship photographer, will evaluate the entrants in seven distinct classes with one build also being awarded the prestigious Best In Show trophy.

In a shake-up to last year’s classes, the ClubStyle/Performance Baggers class has been introduced in keeping with current trends and, to allow even more creativity, the new Freestyle class is the only category where entrants do not need to be road legal. However, entries in all classes must be able to start and ride their builds onto the podium to accept their awards.

The seven classes designed to ensure that every participant has an opportunity to showcase their unique style and creativity are as follows:

• Indian Scout
• Indian Chief / Non-Fairing
• Indian Motorcycle Bagger
• Indian Motorcycle Vintage
• Indian FTR / Sportbike
• Indian Motorcycle Freestyle
• Indian Motorcycle ClubStyle / Performance Bagger

While ride-in entries will be accepted until Saturday, June 15, potential participants are encouraged to secure their spots through pre-registration. Pre-registration not only guarantees a place in the spotlight but also includes three complimentary entry tickets to the Indian Riders Fest 2024. Pre-registration closes on Friday, May 31, 2024.
