The preparations for this year's FBI are well on the way and the COTY prizepool is filling up. Brain contributed a custom springer kit and The Chopperdome will trough in some prizes. Felt and Nirve contributed a cruiser, and Project 346 a set of protoype the spade pedals. (Pedals will be available at your local cruisershop later this year)

Amsterdam (Wazzup)- Always good to see the latest....hope to see the first Slovakian bike at this years FBI.
Deze mooi klassieke Nederlandse Burrito, die we tegen kwamen op Hyves, zag enige tijd geleden het daglicht, maar we weten dat er meer gebouwd wordt in deze stijl.
More COTY news
The COTY will be in the same building as last year only we moved to groundlevel in the bar, renovations are done now. This area has a bar made out of old boat, an even better background to put the bikes. There will be space for about 30 bikes in the inside showarea. Bikes partcipating in the COTY will have to be in the COTY area, in- or outside both Saturday and Sunday, but as it's groundlevel it will be easy for you to take part in Saturday evenings Partycruise or FBI Dragrace. There will be an outside area for those bikes not registered on forehand. So if you want to reserve a place for this years COTY act now and contact the FBI HQ.
