BORN-FREE 6 ?

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 show..man 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.

New Venue for Fuel Cleveland 2017


We strive to always keep Fuel Cleveland fresh, interesting, and entertaining each year. This being our 3rd year, we aimed big and snagged up a humongous warehouse on the East Side of downtown Cleveland, just off of East 55th St. The Ingenuity Festival has been celebrating artist culture in Northeast Ohio since 2009. After taking one look at their new building, and knowing about their passion for the arts, we knew right away that we had to make their new building the home for Fuel Cleveland 2017.


Address: 5401 Hamilton ave. Cleveland, OH 44114

The atmosphere of the entire compound is really amazing. Just walking into the main space of the building you can feel the inspiration from so many different Cleveland artists that rent spaces there. There's spaces dedicated to metal work, fine arts, and they even have an entire wood shop collaborative space there. Cleveland Creative Collaborative is what they called the entire building and you could see why with how much it felt like a elaborate creative community. Walking further into the building we learned our friends at Skid Mark Garage had even set up their new shop in one of the spaces that this massive Ingenuity Fest building has to offer.

This year's show is completely FREE for everyone of all ages to attend. We wanted to give a huge thank you to our sponsors for making that possible for everyone. Thank you again Lincoln Electric, Old Bike Barn and Cheap Thrills Good Times for all of your help so far with this year's show. With out you guys none of this could even be possible!!

Here just a small sample of what this year's venue looks like.

Giddy Up 2017


The wait is over and the Giddy Up is finally here! Jason and Twila will be on location covering the event on our behalf. We can't thank them enough for their ongoing support and help!

The Giddy Up Vintage Chopper Show takes place on March 25, 2017, in the hill country of New Braunfels, Texas at the River Road Icehouse. This laid-back motorcycle gathering is more of a big party than a traditional chopper show, though it is packed with and attended by scores of the highest quality, custom built, vintage choppers around. You don't need much of an excuse to head to Austin and the surrounding hill country for good riding, swimming, tacos, and an all-around good time. This has quickly become one of our must-go shows of the year because it has all of our favorite things wrapped into one!


Not only that, but the Giddy Up Vintage Chopper Show is giving away this killer Panhead chopper built by Joey Cano of Slab Side in San Antonio! Online sales are over, but you can still purchase tickets during the show until they run out.

Best of luck!

Follow the Giddy Up on Facebook and Instagram for more information.

Directions to the River Road Icehouse.

This weekend folks!


Support the Moto Jam this weekend!

Celebrate Matt Davis' life at Kickstart Cycle Supply


"Take the day to ride with your friends then meet us at the shop to have some drinks and tell everyone your favorite Matt Davis story. I don’t think there is anything Matt liked to do more than have a few with his friends and have a great chat. So that is what we will be doing to honor him. Everyone is welcome. If you are in London there is a Celebration on the same day at The Old Ship 25 Upper Mall, Hammersmith, London W6 9TD, UK | 3pm till 9pm." Thanks, Walter
