65 panhead, 1955 panhead, 36 knucklehead and maternity photos

We got Jason's 65 finished and put about 300 miles on it,  my dad is driving down to the Texas road run and delivering it this weekend.  This bike is massive,  I didn't try to ride it with the buddy seat on it,  I am too short!  Jason is a lot taller than me and will do just fine on it.  

1965 didn't use a side cover on the battery,  I think it looks nice with out it.  The battery that we used is a champion battery and it is nice and black, some of the other modern batteries are clear or have a bunch of writing on them.  The mufflers are new old stock and sound great.  The tour pack is something that Jason supplied and it is really cool. It has an early latch on it and also a handle so you can Cary it with you



I got to take my 36 out for the first time this year. Sophorn put a windshield on it, which ended up being more of a challenge than we anticipated since the summer shields were designed for standard rigid bars and I have Flanders bars on my bike.   

I am making good progress on the 55 too it should be done and running next week.  This bike is phenomenal and I feel so lucky to get to work on such a nice pristine example of an original bike
The rear header pipe was missing when they brought the bike to us.  My dad had a nice old original superior rear header pipe in his stash of parts.  It fit up really nicely and matches the rest of the bike well


Britt and I did our maternity photos with the bike. It was fun.  Here is a link to the rest of the photos http://jaceejphotography.blogspot.com/2014/04/brittney-matt-maternity.html?m=1

Pat Patterson Led Sled Customs

Pat Patterson, owner and creator of Led Sled Customs started everything in the basement of the old neighborhood candy store back in 2003. Now with a larger spot based out of Dayton, Ohio he is building one of a kind masterpieces that are stunning the motorcycle community. He has been building bikes and fabricating parts for over a decade now and I don't see him ever quitting. Pat pushes the envelope when it comes to innovation, functionality, and esthetics. He just has a different outlook on motorcycles in general and it's refreshing to see. When you see one of Pat's bikes, immediately you know it's a Led Sled Customs build. Led Sled Customs has been featured in too many magazines to mention and has won even more awards that I would be here for days rattling them off. He wears his Ohio badge proud and I am so excited to have him showcasing one of his innovated builds at Fuel Cleveland on May 9th.

Pat is bringing the bike he built for The Horse Backstreet Choppers Chop-Off in 2013. It's an EVO Sportster built from the ground up and features a kick-only, and a magneto set-up. The entire bike was built in-house at Led Sled and features many one-off parts from their product line. Led Sled Customs specializes in custom Sportster parts and builds. Their vast product line puts an emphasis on parts for garage builders. All of their parts are made in-house and to order for everything from Ironheads to the current Sportster models. Although, some parts, like their fenders and springer front ends, are available to fit almost any motorcycle out there.

Vanson Leathers BF7 Sponsor


Vanson Leathers is one of our Top Sponsors for BF7 & we could not be more excited about having them as part of our extended Born-Free family. Here's a little write up about the company & the generous gift they are providing to our Invited Builder Group. 
 
 
 
Last year Vanson Leathers celebrated our 40th year making motorcycle apparel in the USA. One of the many events we were able to attend in 2014 was Born-Free 6.  We had heard about it for many years, but once it became a two-day event  we knew we had to be there. What we experienced was an amazing group of vendors, builders and community. Upon returning to Massachusetts we knew we wanted to be a part of it somehow.
 
We are excited to be a Top Sponsor of Born-Free 7 this year and pleased to announce we are providing all the Invited Builders a custom Vanson Leathers Born-Free 7 Revolver Vest.

This vest was co-developed with Walter Gemeinhardt from Kickstart Cycle Supply.  He wanted a "riders" vest, so he told us everything a "rider" would want: gun pocket, media pockets, sunglasses holder, even a headphone wire pass through are some of the many features of this vest. It is handmade in Massachusetts from our medium weight leather called Firenze.

We are very excited to be joining the list of the other amazing sponsors this year and to be able to give the invited builders a piece of Vanson.  Thanks to Grant & Mike for inviting us in the Born-Free family. See you all in June!
