A good read

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, it's been a crazy...i don't even know. We are busy trying to catch up on orders (SORYY!!!) and are getting there. I had a week last week of 18 hour days at work, i'm just glad to be alive right now!

Our good friend Yoshiki from the Vice crew/Satan's Crate in Japan was here for Born-Free and has a great pictorial journal of his trip on the Vice Clothing diary blog, CLICK HERE to see it all, there's quite a bit.

It was good to see you buddy!, We'll be in Japan in December!

We finally have super short velocity stacks ready to ship! These are in the line of parts we took over from T-Bone's NOISE skinny cycle parts line. They are only a mere 1 1/8-inch deep and 3-inches in diameter. We made a bunch for the venerable S&S SUPER-E carb AND we did a limited run of them to fit S&S L-Series/Super-B/Bendix carbs!

For the time being they are only available in a smooth fresh machined finish until i can get to the polish and chrome shop-stay tuned for those. Each comes with hardware ready to bolt on. And if you buy a velocity stack for a SUPER-E you'll probably want an enrichener knob to go with it! He have a limited number of NOISE knobs left before we get FMA knobs done.

The stacks go great with teh old style S&S round dounut air cleaner cover. We are working making some to sell as sets, but that's a little down the road.

CLICK on the FMA STORE on the right to order.

We're havin a little shindig at Curley's up the street from the Born-Free site in Signal Hill for the next issue of Street Chopper that hits stands soon. It's also a benifit for boobs, which is a good thing.
Get on your bikes and ride. Disregard the ugly dude on the orange bike.

thank you

THis is the first time i fired up a computer in almost a week, we want to thank EVERYONE that came to and made BORN-FREE 2 a smash hit! I can't even begin to describe the feeling from the weekend. the stories, the adventures, the people, the hardship, the countless miles so many of you put in to get out west, it was increadible to hear your tales.
Stay tuned for more info from the show, but by now i'm sure there's lots of pics up for you to enjoy.

Hajime from sends in some more sweet run shots. I wish i knew how to say Fukurokuju as much as I wish I could have been there! Most of these cats will be here for Born-Free, and for that I am truly stoked.

heres some far out L7 for Mochi, and if you didnt know, Karen Black is one of the ladies from the gilded house in New Orleans in Easyrider.

free rock and roll

come see the beautiful buzzards' first show tomorrow night at the Avalon Bar in Costa Mesa, no cover. Bring ear plugs! We're playing with Wulf Bane

and counting

trying to shake a sore throat as i begin probably the busiest week of the year...what are the odds...anyway we still have some of the HEAVY FMA Turn On, Tune, In, Chop Out shirts in stock, order in the store. Don't think we'll have any of our shirts at Born-Free unless we can clone ourselves this week.
Born-Free Panhead posters/tickets are not available anymore online and we only have limited numbers left anyway that will be available through us personally all week and at the show with what's left. Hope you got yours!

Good Stuff for sale

Starting to go through some of my good parts that i hate to sell, but I am broke after finishing my shovel. I will ship worldwide, email to buy.

Nice OG 1949-57 Panhead Wide GLide triple trees. Of all the sets of these early trees i have these are probably the nicest ones. I would speculate that they are still wearing their orginal black paint, they are just dirty. Nothing is shaved or damaged.

Very nice and rare 1940 or 1952 only 8-rib cam cover. Date code is '52 i believe, but it's drilled for a knucklehead oil line which could be plugged to run on any generator motor. THese were sandcast and are usually very porus and pitted looking, not this one it's in great shape and is possibly the most handsome cam cover out there. Notice there is no diagnal line in fin area?

1967-72 Mid-Star hub. (sale pending) I had this hub rechromed and was going to run it on my shovel, but wound up going with an earlier brake setup. new chrome, decent used internals.

New Old Stock CMS Chicago Motorcycle Supply blue marble kicker pedal. Not much more to say except these things really tie the room together.

It was just to small for the Born Loser to ride around shirtless all summer in, so now it could be yours. The Grim Reaper of So Cal vest is probably a medium in size and looks like it was never worn. Hand painted with sheepskin liner, stitching up the sides, and a chain to link the front together. Just what you've been waiting for.
