The International Master Bike Builders Association has entered into a partnership with the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building held annually at the rally in Sturgis, S.D.
As a result, the IMBBA International Cup Competition, originally set for April 2012 in Quebec, will be moved to combine with the AMD World Championship event in Sturgis.
"The show will now be part of the most famous and largest motorcycle rally in the world. With a competition of this magnitude and bikes of this quality, it is fitting that we hold the show at a venue where hundreds of thousands of people can potentially see these world class bikes for the first time anywhere," IMBBA president Jeff Stark said.
The IMBBA International Cup will now be known as the IMBBA International Qualifier Class. This will yield the IMBBA International Champion and will be qualified under the same rules of being a bike never seen before and the builders representing their country.
