It is with great pomp and circumstance that we bring you the ultimate Fri-yay contest; it’s the kind you can sink your teeth into and still smell the good leather, know what we mean?

Courtesy of Öhlins’s recent press release, Arch has made the decision to partner up with Öhlins Racing (a favorite Swede-run suspension brand), to help you design the bike of your dreams. 

Naturally, the winner will get to take home whichever 3D rendering is created, as well as be taken on a tour of Arch’s facility, with the entire L.A. trip paid for.

The contest started June 1st, but don’t sweat it; with a December 2022 end date far on the horizon, you still have plenty of time to dust off that keyboard and get crack-a-lacking. 

Here’s how to enter, according to the press release:

*Note to the reader: wBW does not take responsibility for the winner’s flamboyant fru-fru, tawdry accoutrement or any other unnecessary additions to the final 3D rendering. If you are yearning to create an unfortunate pairing with a unicorn and a GPZ900R in your budding friendship with Keanu Reeves, go for it…but we had better get photo evidence of the gallop when all’s said and done.*
