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.

Born-Free Show Schedule

We are working on putting together the show schedule for Born-Free 6. This will give you an idea of what time and where we are doing the awards, giveaways, band times ,ect. So far we know that on Saturday June 28 th we are doing the Invited Builder awards presentation and giving away one of the participating Invited Builder bikes  at approx. 4 pm. Bands and times to be determined. Sunday June 29 th we are doing all the regular awards( approx. 15) The Best In Show & Born-Free Awards..plus giving away the 1947 Knucklehead. The fun will all begin at approx. 3pm. Bands and times to be determined. So what does this mean to you? If you want to win one of the participating invited builder bikes you must be present on Saturday. If you want to win an award you must be present on Sunday. If you want to Win Best in Show or The Born-free Award you must be present on Sunday. If you want to win the 1947 Knucklehead you must be present on Sunday. The general awards will work as follows: On Saturday the judges will be roaming the grounds searching for their favorite bikes in the categories they have been assigned to judge. The bikes they pick and it could be several in their category will get a sticker on the headlight. It will say "you have been picked"! If you get one of these stickers come to the Born-Free booth and register. This does not mean you have won. It means you need to come back on Sunday and you are in the running to win your category. We will probably have some kinda goodie bag for you too. Sunday the judges will go back out and search the grounds for the bikes they did not see on Saturday and make sure the bikes they tagged are present then  pick the winner. We will do the awards presentation at approx. 3 pm. Pretty straight forward and simple.  We will do the same thing for Best In Show & Born-Free Award . We will sticker your bike , you come to the booth and sign in. Sunday we will look again and then pick the winner. Remember the winner of the Best In Show comes from the crowd not the invited builders. The winner will also win a trip to Mooneyes HRCS in Japan with their bike!! Please tell your friends and help us get this info out there. This year more than ever our judges and us will be looking at every bike possible to find the best. So get those bikes done and to the show!!

2014 Freedom First Riders Bike Show - Part 3

The vintage class at the 2014 Freedom First Riders Bike Show was small but full of cool old bikes.  My favorite was this 1935 Harley Davidson VL flathead.  In fact, it was my favorite bike of the day.

I also really liked this 1955 FL panhead.

Here are a few more vintage bikes on display.

While the Rat/Rad, Custom, and Vintage classes had some neat bikes to look at, the Metric, Stock, Trike, and Sport Bike classes really didn't impress me much.  I still can't believe that for 2 years in a row, not a single Sportster has been in this show in any class.

Old motorcycles!

Are fun! Had fun on the '37 last Saturday. Ran into some friends along the way. 

Fast Pass Questions & Answers

What is a Born-Free 6 Fast Pass wristband? Why should I buy them? Do I need one to get into Born-Free 6? The answers are: The Fast Pass wristbands are a way to pre pay for your admission to the show. It will guarantee that your old bike will be parked inside the show grounds on the grass and will get you in quicker and earlier than without one. The reason you should buy them is simple...If you care about being parked on the grass on the show grounds and have your bike in the show to be judged & eligible for awards, if you want to get in faster and earlier by entering through a different gate set up just for the Fast Pass wristband holders and not have to fumble around taking off your helmet, stalling your bike & parking it to pay....You might want to get your's now! Do you need one to get into BF6? The answer is No.. you don't need to buy one to get in. Your options are:  you can drive your car to the show and pay at the gate, you can ride your motorcycle to the show, park in the lot and pay at the gate, you can even ride your bike, pay at the gate and ride your bike inside the show grounds and park...but if we are FULL.. you can't bring your bike in..you will be directed to the parking lot. So that's the deal. Buy now and eliminate all your troubles completely or take your shot at the gate. 2 MORE SUGGESTIONS : One is ride a bike to the show. It will help with the traffic and it's a bike show. Two is if you do drive a car try to carpool with friends. It will be a massive help to us and help the flow of traffic.  To get your Fast Pass now go to Lowbrow's BF page http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/p3312/buy/misc/born-free-6/born-free-show-born-free-6-poster-amp-raffle-ticket
