thats what they have in the rule book but what they go by at the show is different. it just depends on the judge that looks over ur bike they got the final word. jus use the rulebook as a basic guideline and be ready to compete with bikes in ur class and a class above u

WTF is capping
:dunno: dont know about bikes but after reading that i'm guessing that "capping" is cape-ing kinda like a cape/skirting possibly? maybe filling in panels even? :dunno:

sorry, im just trying to stay awake while i finish my breathing treatment.

Capping is when you "fill in" an area. For example you cap or fill in the area behind the seatpost or crank...

What you should have is a Semi Custom two wheeler. I am guessing that at the little shows you bet bumped to a different classes because they want to fill in a class. That has happened to me many times. I dont know about your situation.

Good luck! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
