update on Brittneys bike



d
Sorry for the lack of posts,  life has been pretty hectic.  We finished britts bike up a month ago, and had some complications with it and had to rebuild the motor to replace a faulty sprocket shaft.  We jumped through all of those hoops and have it runnign really well.  I have had it up to 65, and britt has had it up to 75,  I guess the 100 pound weight difference really has an affect.   Here is a pic of britts bike at the Saint Paul Fairgrounds from this past weekend.

Here is a pic of Brittney riding her bike for the first time.  It really fits her perfectly.  The bike will be at Born free next week, and then she has an exhibition run with Jim Wall in Holyoke Colorado on July Fourth.  Try to make it out if you can.
 This last weekend we went to the Viking AMCA meet to hang out with some friends.  We ran into Frank from Strong arm sprays.  He is a great guy and is always helping out on some level or another with the AMCA.  His product is really good too. We use it for breaking rusty stuff loose and even as cutting fluid on the lathe.
We stayed with Kevin and Amy Baas while we were in town.  I am always amazed at how quickly their boys are growing. This is Mason, he is so cool.
 
I saw this really cool bsa bike while I was at the meet.  It is tricked out and looks like a lot of fun to ride.

and another shot of my beautiful wife.  This bike was easy to build, there really are not a lot of parts on it or things to worry about, like clutches, brakes, or electrics.  She will be racing it at wauseon and davenport, so please come out and see some cool 90 year old bikes in action.   If you cant make it to the races, there will be a feature on it in american iron magazine.

Pat Patterson Led Sled Customs

Pat Patterson, owner and creator of Led Sled Customs started everything in the basement of the old neighborhood candy store back in 2003. Now with a larger spot based out of Dayton, Ohio he is building one of a kind masterpieces that are stunning the motorcycle community. He has been building bikes and fabricating parts for over a decade now and I don't see him ever quitting. Pat pushes the envelope when it comes to innovation, functionality, and esthetics. He just has a different outlook on motorcycles in general and it's refreshing to see. When you see one of Pat's bikes, immediately you know it's a Led Sled Customs build. Led Sled Customs has been featured in too many magazines to mention and has won even more awards that I would be here for days rattling them off. He wears his Ohio badge proud and I am so excited to have him showcasing one of his innovated builds at Fuel Cleveland on May 9th.

Pat is bringing the bike he built for The Horse Backstreet Choppers Chop-Off in 2013. It's an EVO Sportster built from the ground up and features a kick-only, and a magneto set-up. The entire bike was built in-house at Led Sled and features many one-off parts from their product line. Led Sled Customs specializes in custom Sportster parts and builds. Their vast product line puts an emphasis on parts for garage builders. All of their parts are made in-house and to order for everything from Ironheads to the current Sportster models. Although, some parts, like their fenders and springer front ends, are available to fit almost any motorcycle out there.

Vanson Leathers BF7 Sponsor


Vanson Leathers is one of our Top Sponsors for BF7 & we could not be more excited about having them as part of our extended Born-Free family. Here's a little write up about the company & the generous gift they are providing to our Invited Builder Group. 
 
 
 
Last year Vanson Leathers celebrated our 40th year making motorcycle apparel in the USA. One of the many events we were able to attend in 2014 was Born-Free 6.  We had heard about it for many years, but once it became a two-day event  we knew we had to be there. What we experienced was an amazing group of vendors, builders and community. Upon returning to Massachusetts we knew we wanted to be a part of it somehow.
 
We are excited to be a Top Sponsor of Born-Free 7 this year and pleased to announce we are providing all the Invited Builders a custom Vanson Leathers Born-Free 7 Revolver Vest.

This vest was co-developed with Walter Gemeinhardt from Kickstart Cycle Supply.  He wanted a "riders" vest, so he told us everything a "rider" would want: gun pocket, media pockets, sunglasses holder, even a headphone wire pass through are some of the many features of this vest. It is handmade in Massachusetts from our medium weight leather called Firenze.

We are very excited to be joining the list of the other amazing sponsors this year and to be able to give the invited builders a piece of Vanson.  Thanks to Grant & Mike for inviting us in the Born-Free family. See you all in June!
