Bikers 74








We don't normally post scans from old magazines but man, this was too good to ignore. Our friend Steve Rebuck mailed me a copy of Bikers 74, a UK publication by the English Libary from, you guessed it, 1974. He added the immortal line "I figured you guys would enjoy this" and he wasn't wrong. It comes as A4 size but folds out to A3, most of the photos are by Phil Mather. The English Libary are also responsible for trashy biker books like Chopper, The Leather Boys and the classic, Angels From Hell. Here is the first paragraph from the first page

"The motorbike-to the tens of thousands who ride one to and from work it's just a cheap form of transport; to the additional thousands who wheel gleaming machines out of garages at weekends it is a means of recreation; but, to the kind of biker you'll meet in this magazine, the motorbike means a lot more. It symbolises a whole freewheeling life-style which is a unique amalgam of speed, danger and excitment culminating when you're out there on the road tied to nothing but your bike-'like a castaway on a rushing island of machinery'. When you're going too fast into that hairpin or likely to come off at the next corner, there's no one to help you and you stand or fall by your own decisions. For the biker this is the ultimate high. For once he experiences the thrill of being in complete control of his own fate"

Right on brother.

Show Class People's Champ Deadline is December 1!!!


We at Born-Free couldn't be more stoked with the Show Class Magazine People's Champ contest now in its third year. While we try to take note of who is building what and try to find as much new blood and talent to be our Invited Builders Each year we just can't be everywhere or know everyone which is where the People's Champ comes in!
Basically if you've always wanted to be or wondered what it takes to be an Invited Builder you have your chance to show your skills in a contest that gets narrowed down to a final few and the night before Born-Free 7 the winner will be picked and welcomed into our group of Invited Builders at the show. But there is a lot of hope for those that don't "win" as we have poached many talented guys that got voted out along the way and welcomed them into our fold.
