So Joey asked me to to blog post on his Born Free 5 bike build, since he's neck deep in mold and acrylic right now.
Joey is and always has been really influence by mid 60's show bikes, the beautiful Roth and Watson days. An era that's probably a huge influence on alot of us, but for Joey its the one and only way.
All Show/All Go.
He's working on a 1947el knuckle in a matching knuckle frame he did "some slight" modifications to. He's tweaked every piece on this bike and knarrowed just about everything, hence the new name. I don't even think you can fit a nickle between the front tire and the extremely knarrowed Triumph front end using one of Brandon's(mullins) star hub. The tank is very knarrowed & squished Hap Jones. The oil tank has a few mods and the exhaust isn't stock. There's tons more, but thats what the pics are for. He's done all the fab work, the motor will make you blind and now he's getting high on colorful fumes. Can't wait to this fucking thing finished!
Proud of my good Brother.
Oh yeah!!! You can win this Bike at Born Free on June 29th, for only $25!! Crazy! Go here to get your ticket.
He is also, finally starting his own company!
He's in the works of getting things finalized, and will have shirts and parts coming soon to help fund the madness. More on this later.
