THE JUDGES

Bob Kay (Chairman)

A renowned and highly respected figure in the V-twin and Custom Culture community, Bob Kay has been involved with motorcycling his entire life, racing, riding, and developing the industry. His concepts launched Biker Pros to offer specialized services, education, and bring awareness of the street level custom scene to the corporate Motorcycle industry. He brings overwhelmingly vast experience, understanding, and unique style to the table. Bob Kay Has been part of the Industry for over 40 years, and literally started the modern competition series currently copied around the world.  To have his expertise and History Push for the next Generation of Competition is a True Honor. We doubt few if any person has the credentials to head our Panel over Bob.

Miguel Galluzzi

If not for this judge, there’d be no Ducati Monster, no Aprilia Dorsoduro, no RSV4 or Tuono, no Guzzi V7 Racer or California 1400. Miguel Galuzzi is the mastermind and designer behind these timeless icons of the motorcycle industry and countless other classic motorcycles. Considered one of the most prolific designers of this generation and currently head of Piaggio’s Advanced Design Center in Pasadena, Galuzzi’s knowledge of all things mechanical make him our pick for the Judging Panel.  Obviously, his accomplishments and Passion for design can leave no argument to his expertise on Machines.

Mark Prosser

The Professor is in! As the youngest of four brothers in a family owned automotive business, Mark has been and always will be involved in the motorsports industry. Prosser chose the academic route for a while to feed his family, as a professor teaching and instructing welding and fabrication to the world’s best in Wisconsin. Currently, he consults on training, manufacturing techniques and code work for major manufacturers in a plethora of industries.  He is a world-renowned Author with books on Metal Fabrication and Welding, and has even backed up many big-name builders on TV Build offs, and Magazines both in automotive and motorcycle.  A constant study of best technique, his knowledge base and experience is seldom rivaled in the relatively small World Motorcycle Industry.  A true and accredited expert on all things metal Mark adds a new level of inspection and understanding not currently available in “Peer Judging” competitions.

Chip Foose

Foose began tinkering on bikes when just seven years old, and he hasn’t stopped since! A legend in his own time, Foose is a hugely respected designer in the industry and worked under Boyd Coddington before launching Foose Design. He is also known as the beloved star of TV series Overhaulin’.  His knowledge base, Talent, and expertise in all things Motorsports made him a must have on our Judging Panel.  His fine eye for all designs, fit finish, and undeniable credibility will hopefully prove our competition and Judging style to be the best.
