Go! Dirtbag Challenge New York City will be 05/08/16.


After 13 years of San Francisco Dirtbags, we are bringing the challenge to the mean streets of NYC. So, raid the garage, dumpsters, your neighbors yard. do what you have to do and get to building a bike for the first annual NYC DBC.

Want in?

  1. Read the rules below
  3. Follow Facebook and Instagram and tag your build photos #dirtbagchallenge.

We will be announcing the Brooklyn location and details for the meetup, ride and party to be held on May 8th, 2016 shortly. Good luck east Coast Dirtbags!


The Rules

1. One month build time

You can start your bike on the day that we announce the Dirtbag Challenge, one month before the day of the actual show.

2. One thousand dollar budget

This includes the price of the donor bike, all parts, and all work. Yes you could cheat but then you’d be a loser.

3. One hundred miles

On the morning of the show, meet up with the other Dirtbags and ride with us. We will ride at least one hundred miles over every type of road. There probably won’t be a chase vehicle.

4. No Harleys

This is to keep it fair, to give everyone the chance to shine. We like Harleys, we ride Harleys but this is about being different and thinking outside the box.

That’s it, that’s all there is. The rest is up to you, use your brain, we are not your mommy.
