I have had the pleasure of knowing Larry Pierce from Garage Company Customs for MANY years. I can honestly say he's the same dude today but has more facial hair. Larry is a talented builder that goes above and beyond to get the best results for his customers and his personal builds. I was thrilled that he received the nod to be an Invited Builder for Born-Free 5 and knew he would knock it out of the park. Like many folks that attended Born-Free 5, I was on bended knee admiring this bike, the engraving is impeccable, the lean is mean and the color is spot on.

Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include: I was an invited builder to Born - Free 5 and I built this bike for it. I finished the bike in California at LA Speed Shop owned by Chris Richardson. I want to thank him for taking that week off to help me, letting me take over his shop and letting us sleep in the bunkbeds. A HUGE WET KISS TO CHRIS RICHARDSON for being such a solid dude and great friend! SMOOCHES xoxoxo
Thanks to Kendall Lutchman (paint), Shane B (engraving), Stewart (Seat), Greg (Gking Polishing), Gaylon at Rick's Cycle parts for help with the bottom end, Josh Henning for saving my ass with chrome, my ole lady for keeping me on schedule and polishing all the stainless.
Larry just received word that he is an Invited Builder for Born-Free 6 and I can't wait to see what he creates. Be sure to check out Larry's site and give 'em a like on Facebook and Instagram.
