Amsterdam (FBI HQ)- Slowly moving towards good weather and fun. As we read on the forums some can't hardly wait , we have some suggestions: on the 19th the V Corps, Veendendaal eo. organizes  "Tha who's your pimp dadday cruise part VI" , to get in the mood. For those in Germany "Beachcruise Festival Baldeneysee".

We heard the SIC has landed and after a short stop in Dublin now on his way to Barcelona, before invading Germany next weekend and do the SIC thing in Essen. 

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)
Over a hundred have already pre registered, we will number some more spokecards

12 juli 2008 - Boxtel B (Wazzup)- Bijna klaar om de weg naar de DAM te aanvaarden, volg de laatste fase van JB's trike op JB Special.
22 juni 2008 - Amsterdam (FBI HQ)- Last year the discussion about a Bicycle Build Off during the FBI came to an end with the intention to do something...the discussion started again on Chopperbicycle.net, shame it's dead due to spammers and lack of interest by administrator(s)...and so there will be a FBI BBO, "Le Klomp d'Or".

Wednesday till Friday three teams will have to build a single speed bicycle and  as big final take part in the Chopper Olympics Heptathlon Friday evening. The theme of this BBO is Dutch functionality and games, short for the bikes will have to transport various objects during a competion in seven small competions.

Teams taking part: Netherlands, teamcaptain Basman 33, Canada, teamcaptain Brain and Spain with capo Make.

Of course the looks of the bike are important so the first stage is election of best bike of this build off, the teams can score major points with this leg. Warming up...the contestants will during the second stage of the games as they will have to drop some Jenever before going to the finish line. Only drinking ain't fun so the the 3rd event will be the FBI variation of the classic dutch game: koekhappen. Now that the teams are powered up it's time to start moving stuff, but first some pick up's...stage 4: Jousting event, get the buckets needed in stage 6; The water bucket race. Stage 5 will be an egg race, no egg no glory. The final of the COH will see the teams doing their final transport and bringing back the troops, one rider has to carry/bring on the bike the other two members to the end zone, one at the time....

Who will win "Le Klomp d'Or" ?
28 april 2008 - Amsterdam (FBI HQ)- Één van die welkome aanvullingen op de COTY van dit jaar, de RR klasse. De Roadster, voor velen het begin van een hobby. Vandaar ook deze klasse als extra homage aan dit oermodel, basis en inspiratie voor vele custom bikes. Er staan reeds een paar ingescgreven in de RR klasse, en we krijgen foto's toegestuurd van wat ons te wachten staat...de Roadster klasse een must win once category.

Amsterdam (Wazzup)-  Always good to see the latest....hope to see the first Slovakian bike at this years FBI.

19 april 2008 - \Amsterdam (Wazzup)- Officieël toegevoegd aan de COTY de BB: Burrito class en RR class voor Roadsters-Limo's.

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.
