Turn on, tune in, and chop out

My good friend Brian Harlow from Chicago sent me this great video of their ride to Born-Free a couple years ago from the upper Midwest...AND BACK!
 Rigid frames, choppers, old iron, small tanks, sissy bars packed, a few of your closest friends...what a dream. Sit back and watch this and just dream. Pretty jealous of all you that have had the time to do a journey like this...I've gotta get on the road soon and shake the dust off...

Not sure how it could get any cooler or enticing than that... come to have a good time, but if you don't come to win, you'll be sorry you didn't play...

For example, you could take home this awesome 1947 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead built by Joey Cano for $25...a stupid crazy sweet deal! CLICK HERE to get yours now and avoid waiting in line the day of the show or possibly missing out all together when all the tickets sell...

SORRY!!! Online tickets are SOLD OUT!!! get what's left the day of the show, the Long Beach Swapmeet, Trico in Hollywood, or Long Beach Trading Company. ...early bird gets the worm!

Spaghetti westerns

Born Free is just around the bend and my last show paintjob is almost on deck. Here's the Cycle Zombies tank for their Born Free 5 giveaway bike- this bike, right out of an early David Mann paintin, could be yours on June 29th. Big Scott got down with some spaghetti on the tank and my main man Gary Gastmeyer had been expertly molding away on it. This is going to one fun paintjob...

Blues brothers

Got a new 6 volt battery in the '51 from Westminster H-D and took the windshield off. Also did a little maintenance on the '37.
