Focus: Born Free 2 Panhead Giveaway

With the second annual Born Free just two weeks away, the free panhead candle is burning from both ends. Mike, Josh and crew are putting the finishing touches on a machine some lucky sucker's going to snap up with a raffle ticket. A limited number of tickets have been printed for this deal, and if they sell out before the event that's all she wrote. Our point? You better buy 'one while you can. 

Josh was cool enough enough to let McGoo and me shoot the bike before it was finished. Keen observers might notice a few missing bits like wires and fuel line, but the bones are here and you can see it's almost ready to put some fortunate soul's knees in the breeze. Here's the lowdown on what this custom creation is made of.
