Two special awards are selected by the Classic Motorcycle Day board. The Bill Ford Memorial Classic Motorcycle Award is given to the person or motorcycle that represents the best of classic motorcycling. The Motorcycle of Most Technical interest is awarded for the machine that generates the most interest for its mechanical engineering.

Judges will hang “Honorable Mention” ribbons on all class winners (trophy winners & honorable mention winners). You will know before the trophy presentations if your bike is in the running for a trophy.
