Wow it's hard to believe that BF5 was almost a month ago..all the planning and work that goes into this show( for everyone involved) is over in a blink of an eye. The dust has finally settled a bit and unfortunately for us we need to make a decision on BF6. The site needs a commitment very soon or the dates will be gone and park rented to someone else. We had a great show and if definitely was much bigger than the previous year.. is that good or bad not really sure? We had a lot of growing pains this year and some drama but that's life. We can't please everyone and some don't want it even if we could. I did learn some things this year... The show is not going to work for everyone ( including builders, vendors, sponsors or spectators) & that's ok, we also need  to thicken our skin a bit .When you put all your time & effort, you pour your heart and soul into something you love and then people trash you it's a tough pill to swallow...but that's the deal and we get it. We also need more help..a lot more and lastly if we  do the show again we need to get back control of it before it goes the wrong direction. Oh.. I also forgot to mention we did not sell the show
..infact it's never been discussed so don't believe rumors or spread em. If you want to know something just ask us..      I found this flyer from the first that was fun!

The show was the business man, haters are gonna hate no matter what!! You cats did an amazing job and like Mrflameman57 said the positives out weigh the negatives(none in my opinion) by far. Keep up the good work brother and I can't wait for next years show.

I've been to every Born Free to date and they have gotten bigger and better each year. I totally loved BF2 the most in Signal Hill (but I was merely a spectator there... so that explains it)(free beer). This year we had a double wide booth and sold more t-shirts than at any other single "vendor" event in our Lady Hump / Gasser Lounge history! CRFyou shirts were a fucking smash!!! ~ Thanks everyone! Can't believe how hot it was but whatever... sorry for everyone stuck in traffic... hope we quenched your thirst if you swung by? can't wait for next year... we might triple the booth! Mike and Grant; just do your thing! Anyone there and unhappy isn't as unhappy as the millions who never had the chance to attended a BF... :-(

I have been to all but number 1.
I think they have all gotten getter each year. That said , I can only hope tree is another. Yeah it was hot, yeah it was crowded, if it wasn't the haters woulda complained about that too.
Maybe it's time to start charging for admission. It would weed out some of the freeloaders and whiners. I'd pay for the experience.
IF that was the last, I thank you for what you for what you have done. It's been a great ride.

A healthy couple o' cats . . . Me & Morty

Morty The Official Shop Cat says, "Let me in . . ." 
Mort likes his motocross bike stand I got for him to sit on.
Trying to figure out what shaft I'm gonna need for a special project.  I've been taking these supplements so I can still kick start all these bikes.  My "Sportster Knee" is definitely improving due to exercise and diet.



Bob Pazour - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Pazour Cycle was the shop of Iowa State Dirt Track Motorcycle Champ Bob Pazour.  He rode Indians, and many other brands.  He won Iowa Championships in 1956 and 1957.  I wonder ff the building is still there? 

Off with the Ice - On with the Dirt

Water: The most corrosive substance known to man.  After a couple hundred laps of ice riding 6 weekends in a row, this thing is dirty, a bit rusty, and foamy oil still drips from the breather tube.  The aluminum is dull, carbon is on everything from the pipes back . . . No loose bolts found yet, but it needs to be fully "gone through" and checked out.  I'll hook the brakes back up - and I'm changing the transmission gear from a 18T to a 16T to start running in high gear instead for these shorter tracks like Dubuque Speedway.  High is better for the transmission, stronger and less friction, less power robbing . . . the way it was designed.

Skat Blast

So I've got this bench top blaster I use . . . and I have a hole bored through my garage wall with a flex hose to attach my Shop Vac (outside) to suck all the dust out.  When the vacuum is running, this white dust cloud is in the air, and the vac is so wore out from all the bead (probably going through the motor) that it rattles and is REALLY LOUD !  The neighbors probably think I got some kind of meth-making operation going on over there . . . and they keep their distance.
  Parts "on deck" to be blasted . . along with a bunch of mis-matched pistons Randy gave me to see if any where salvageable?  A couple are old Dytch stroker pistons ! 

Tacos NEXT Tuesday and then a little LADYHUMP action...

March 20th 2018
Meet for Tacos at 7pm'ish
and then one block away...

Ok, the times are pretty loose. You could show up for Tacos anytime from 7pm on, we'll probably be eating there for an hour or so before we make our way to the Blacklight District Lounge for the show. If everyone is done eating by 8pm, we could easily start the music sooner too. There's no absolutes, just an invitation to good times!

Ride directly to LA CONCHA at 2612 E. Anaheim Street, Long Beach, CA.
Taco Moto Tuesday "style" meet up
There's plenty of moto parking at the restaurant (and that's hard to find around this area of Long Beach!), taco specials, beers, and plenty of seating we can arrange depended on how many people show up. 

After that, we'll have to travel one whole block to The Blacklight District Lounge 
2500 E. Anaheim Street, Long Beach, CA.
21/over $5/cover, three bands A Lovely Sort of Death, Clown Sounds, and Lady Hump

What is it about V-Twin Motors ?

Who built the 1st one ?

Silver Pipes

I like this motor done up in black . . .

Backyard Maple Tapping

The first bit of sap.  Hopefully a lot more can be collected before the boiling begins.
