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.

Full Tilt Boogie 2014 - Part 7

Sportsters were very well represented at Full Tilt 4.

We'll start with the ironheads.  I believe this one won an award:

Jarad's bike looked really good and I even managed to snag a couple of photos of him kickstarting it.  The crowd is mesmerized.

Black & White:

This bike has so many things going for it.

Swingarm chop:

This bike was filthy, greasy, appears to have possibly once caught on fire, and is all-around awesome.  Apparently, I'm not the only LadyHump fan in Minnesota.

The crazy fishtail exhaust might distract you from another cool detail on this bike which is what I'll call fork carving, as opposed to fork shaving ("Hold Tite").

Glad Jordan and his bike made it in safely.  It sounded like he had a pretty rough ride in the rain.

Evo Sportsters are next.

2014 Award Winners

Fulton Paint Works tank winner!
 
 The trophy tree.
Gasket Goon Josh and his amazing sidecar shovel rode away with the HD award.
 
Al Kelly took home the well-deserved antique award with his '49 Pan.
Amy's Triumph took the top British honors of the weekend.
Kat approves!
Bill's old CB750, "Conkey," woke up just in time this year to win the Jap bike award.
Uncle Twisty's Ironhead chop  was easily the Rat bike of choice this year.
This dual-carb Ironhead beat out some tough competition for the Sportster award.
Mr. Nashville, TN rode the furthest to Strange Days 4, and hopefully got home safe with the help of his well-earned Long Haul self defense club.
Congrats to all of this year's award winners; all well-deserved.  The decisions were beyond tough, but it's all about the fun; you ride in, and you're in the show.  Consider everyone an invited builder!

Full Tilt Boogie 2014 - Part 6

While Full Tilt had lots of Harleys, there were some cool Japanese and British bikes there too.  Mike's Norton is awesome.  I like the yellow/gold he recently added to the tank.

See... the sun did eventually come out:

Hardtailed Triumph hiding in the grass:

I've been seeing this Triumph at shows for years:

Dan's Royal Enfield was looking good in the rain.

Very cool Yamaha.  I saw this bike at the Rockers Spring Social (yes, I'll post photos eventually) and the skateboard wheel taillight stood out along with a bunch of other custom parts.

The orange bike next to it was pretty cool too.

I like headlight grills.  This one looks like crosshairs to me.

It's too small to read in the photo but I liked the sticker on this bike that said "Zero to Sixty 3 to 4 minutes."

Over 50 photos left and they're all Sportsters...

Born Free (20/20) ...my favorite overall bike at Born Free 6




Foxy Lady
Built by Akira Crib Motorcycle 
Paint by Gen Love Ear Art

It's hard to pick a favorite, but there's something about this artists paint and sculpting that makes the bike take on a life all of it's own. Sure, it's (not-just) an Ironhead, it's insane...








That's been 20/20 days of Born Free 6 photography, mostly parking lot stuff, but not all. I have hundreds of more pictures that I'll probably get too, but it'll be spread out more over weeks instead of dailys. Hope you enjoyed this little "window" into what was Born Free 6.
