So great to see so many friends and new friends come together for a good cause. Thanks again to 24cycles.com for putting this together last Saturday and making Christmas just a little better for some kids who weren't expecting the generosity of strangers. Merry Christmas!
We have always believed that getting others involved in Born-Free who had the same passion & love for this stuff as we do is the only way to keep the show going & going in the right direction. This year we are teaming up with Warren & Scott of The Mama Tried Show and doing something cool... We are taking the 2015 H-D Street "The Thresher" built by Brandon Holstein of Brawny Built/ Speed Merchant back to Milwaukee and giving away. The Thresher was built for and debuted at BF6 and now it can be yours. This bike has been featured in several publications, graced the cover of Hot Bike magazine, made a splash at the Lichter Show in Sturgis & countless other events...even has some track time. This bike was one of the first to be touched/customized by an Independent and the results blew us & everyone who has seen it away. Street, Dirt...maybe the Ice! It's up to you. Make your plans now. The Mama Tried Show is Feb 21-22 2015 in Milwaukee Wi. Check out http://mamatriedshow.com/theshow/ for all show info.

Unlike the other bikes we are giving away this year at Born-Free ...YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE PRESENT TO WIN THIS BIKE !!
Dice issue 59, The Biltwell issue, is nearly upon us and to celebrate we asked the Biltwell boys to design and manufacture 50 items that we can sell as limited editions with this issue. Bill had been wanting to do a small-scale traditional seabag, but with a couple extra features like Molle webbing that would be easy to attach to just about any sissy bar. He sketched up the dimensions, picked up a couple full-size seabags and headed to Duane Ballard's where he built the first prototype. That bag got a little six hundred or so mile shakedown and Bill learned a few things and made some modifications. Their vest guy in Los Angeles custom-dyed a lot of 100% cotton 18 oz. duck canvas and stitched 'em up. Bill and McGoo hand tied the closures and installed the brass snap links. The finished bags were then dashed over to their screen printer where the underside of each bag's lid got a little artwork and serial number added. The volume of most bags or luggage is usually measured in litres, but we thought it would be more fitting to use cans of beer since more of our customers would probably identify with that. This bag fits 36 Coors originals perfectly, hence the name EXFIL-36. Got a little extra stuff? clip it on to the Molle straps on the side or add modular ammo pouches, etc. This bag is only available with DicE issue #59 and will go on sale in our online store on Monday morning, December 22nd at 9am PST (California time). Once we sell those 50 bags that's it, there will be no more. All successful purchases will be shipped on Monday December 29th.
