Our good friends at Dime City Cycles are the official sponsor of the DO THE TON Bike of the Month Contest!

Dime City Cycles are not only generous sponsors of the site, but they are good friends and incredible supporters of our community. They've been part of our group of friends since the earliest days of DO THE TON over 10 years ago and both DTT and DCC have grown side by side over the years working to foster the garage-built community of enthusiasts.

In addition to gracing the masthead of DO THE TON for a month, Dime City Cycles will recognize the winner with:

  • A spot light on www.dimecitycycles.com
    [*]Email announcement to their many fans and customers
    [*]Announcement on Dime City Cycles social media profiles reaching thousands and thousands of fellow enthusiasts
    [*]Winner receives a prize package from DCC (DCC swag + Gift Card!)


Here are the Nomination Rules:

1. Nominate one of our members' bikes for Bike of the Month - include up to 3 flattering pictures of the bike in question. This is an opportunity to recognize someone who's bike has inspired you.

Please don't nominate your own bike - make sure you have a well detailed build thread, post up in the Show n Shine area etc. and if enough people like your bike, someone will nominate it and maybe you'll see it as our banner in an upcoming month!

The Nomination must be accompanied by the member's User Name, a link to the thread where their bike is best described (Build thread, Show n Shine etc.) and a PHOTO of the bike in question.

2. Someone seconds the nomination (please only second one nomination)

3. Member should accept the nomination - If you're nominating a bike, make sure you're in contact with the owner, that they want the bike included and they accept the nomination. The Nominee should provide some back-story on the project, especially if there is a limited build thread.

4. Bike must be in running roadworthy condition - no basket cases. I know our bikes are never really 'finished' but it should be on the road/track/dirt and rideable.

5. If a bike has been nominated in the previous month but did not win, it should not be included in the current month's contest. Wait 3 months to allow other worthy nominations and then resubmit if you like.

6. Bikes that have won in prior contests should not be included unless they have been modified significantly.

We will accept nominations for a few days till we have a good selection to a limit of 3 bikes per contest.

A poll will be set up and voting will take place for a week or so depending on timing. Whoever ends the voting period with the most votes wins :D

It is my pleasure to nominate pitobread's Lil Smokey!

A smoker and a tiddler - what's not to like.

There a still a few details undone (isn't that always the case) but it's a runner.

Thanks, I am honored.. If the powers at be can overlook the fact I am just finishing the controls, I will gladly accept.. If the gods of waterjet smile on me I should have them done before the Xmas break is over!

My criteria generally runs...
1) 2stroke?
2) Yamaha?
3) Which one would I most like to ride?

No surprise where my vote landed ;D

Good Luck to Everyone though ;)

Here's another -



Did a bunch of work on this KLR - it's a '00 C model which is pretty rare. Not sure they sold it in the States, and only here in Canada for a couple of years. Which made finding parts a bit of a challenge. Engine's bored out to 685 with a Wossner piston - that took care of any engine vibrations (it's a much lighter piston) and also gave it some more torque. Bike entirely stripped down, powder coated frame, Lexx exhaust, Shinko rubber, modified arirbox, Doohickey, rebuilt brakes, custom tank, fenders, badges and trim...load of other stuff that's all a bit of a blur. And Biltwell kung-fu grips. In oxblood, FTW.

Yes, that was close. Congrats Rusnak! The only thing I find disappointing is that only 24 people voted, out of how many???? Kind'a sad. If we could get half the group to vote, well THAT would make a contest.

Agreed, and that seems to be more or less the same number every contest. I'm guessing its largely the same 24 or so people every time.
