    Exclamation Post your entry for the bad ass mod of the month contest - February '015 !

    Not everyone has a full bike project thread going, however most of you make bobs & bits, tweak things and complete mods to improve bikes in an ongoing process of continuous performance improvement. That never. Ever. Ends. Ever. So we at Ichiban Moto are sponsoring the "Bad Ass modification of the month" award !

    The winner will be awarded awesome bragging rights, admiration from their peers, recognition from the international motorcycle community and a sweet trio of Ichiban Moto stickers ! !
    ( That's right, a full 1/4 dozen of 100% authentic and Bad Ass "cetified" Ichiban Moto Stickers! )

    Post a picture or video of that thing you made this month along with a brief description : That part or tool you had to mod. That whatzit you carved from billet. Or wood. You guys/gals mod, make and alter things in some very creative and practical ways to make things work. And that should be shared, so here is thread to post it !

    The last week of this month, I will post a poll of the finalists* for everyone to vote on.

    *if the entry count exceeds the poll maximum, a paired down selection of finalists will be selected by the Ichiban Moto staff for you to vote on

    My bad ass mod was to my shop - I added a wireless 4 speaker stereo system in the shop. Now I can tune in while tuning out at the same time... Now that's bad ass.

    Can I post stuff I made in 2013? Since Jan 2014 I've been on a paycheck job that has kept me out of the shop.

    doesn't matter to me ! I just wanted a thread where we can all see the cool stuff everyone is doing

    The spirit of the thread, if not specifically detailed in the rules, is stuff that everyone is doing now. If you want to post some old project from the past , you might want to include full disclosure in the submission. ... it is a peer polled contest, so everyone has a say with their vote at the end of the month

    Sadly I can't lay claim to this one. The latest version of the parts cleaner. Think he's been watching your videos.
