The Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off America sounds pretty simple. Below is a description of the competition:
MAKING THE MOST WITH THE LEAST
THE ENTRY MUST RUN (I.E. KICK OVER AND IDLE)
MUST BE RIDEABLE (I.E. ROLL UNDER OWN POWER)
DISPLAY CREATIVITY IN DESIGN OR CONSTRUCTION
DISPLAY INGENUITY IN DESIGN OR FUNCTION
Oh…and the local winners from Sydney, Milan, Bali, and L.A. compete for the overall title! The outcome of the L.A. (Venice) event was determined by esteemed Judges; Yoshi Kosaka, Shinya Kimura, Michael Woolaway, Mike (Relief Judge), and our very own Lori Bentley-Law!
Orange County was covered in thick fog and that broke around Seal Beach, traffic was light for the 405. We were greeted with hot coffee at Deus and Lori was soon whisked away with the other Judges by Julian and Hiroshi. While they were busy Daniella and I tried to figure out a way to sneak Yoshi’s bike out of the shop. We failed so I drank more coffee and took a few pictures.

Yoshi’s Felix the Cat helmet. I sat next to it and received compliments for a couple hours.
