Regular posting to resume after Carmageddon
Being out of the country for work during the previous 2 Born Free’s kinda blew big… So being firmly planted within the confines of the good ‘ol US of A (work travelling is no bueno) for saturdays third installment of Born Free, we headed out to check out some bikes, drink some beer and shoot the shit. I’m sure you’ll get more in depth photos everywhere else… This is what I was able to click off between beers….
The Black Falcon… as previously mentioned– amazing attention to detail…
Siksika… currently one of my favorite Pan’s…
Hide’s Shovel– So simple and effective. More proof that simple swing arm stances can be so good…
This Pan was all business— steel braided everything, Hurst slick in the back, simple attack/drag bars… love it…
Scratch built aluminum “quick release” tank and zeus fastened seat section with hand done upholstery… just the tip of the iceberg…
Len was up until 8 am the day of welding up odds and ends to get the bike completed
Ruler~! Congrats again holmes!!
To avoid getting too sun drunk, we high-tailed it over to Barret-Jackson to meet up Pat and see rich people throw away money on questionable decisions….
You don’t even know how fast the price rose to this….
Ending with this…
Funny thing was, a cherry Cuda came up right after and garnered only $65,000. Tastes are-a-changing….
Congrats again to Len!
Pabst Headquarters moving to Los Angeles via LA Times
“Meanwhile in Silverlake and Echo Park, thousands found weeping tears of joy in streets…”
From Falcon… there are so many mind-boggling details on this piece. Forks, seat pan, tanks, tank mount, controls etc, etc, etc… Truly impressive to say the leaset. Check the vid and their website done by the homie Jason Filipow…
On another note, apologies for the super lagging in posts. Life has thrown some curveballs… Yukio is the only responsible one haha.
Selling my ’08 Thruxton. Hate to see her go, but my carpal tunnel is not happy. Got to get something comfy. Maybe a GoldWing, or not.
She’s got some paint, some parts, less a few factory emissions parts, but generally pretty stock. Los Angeles area. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
