Born Free 6

Well its that time of year again, Born Free 6 is coming up fast and I have a lot to do!
My 1940 ULH motor is back from its full rebuild over at good friend Lee of Lee's Speed Shop.
He did the old girl up right with some custom ground hot cams and few other tricks he likes to do when he rebuilds the old iron.  I am excited to hear this old tractor come to life!!

After last years Born Free 5 dual carb pan build which won the best pan award, I was getting ready to try and out do that one and go with some crazy dual carb knuck.  Well I have recently moved to a new home and the costs of setting up the new shop and getting my family back in order in this place has depleted my funds to try and put together a knuck like that.  So instead this year I will be bringing just a simple good old fashioned bike that will be of my style and built to ride all over the country as I did on my old knuck... no bling, no overdone engraved stuff..just a nice parkerized/black/ blasted aluminum type of a cool vintage bike.  I do appreciate when guys spend months building kick ass frames and narrowing original springers and the such but in the future that stuff will only go down in value, the uncut original stuff is what will be worth way more for my kids to have when I am gone.  So for this build I found a correct original 1940 frame to use with the 40 motor and has a oem uncut original springer.   Stay tuned as I bring this to school and start working on it with my students in the chopper class.  One last bit of good news to announce is that Harley-Davidson is sponsoring the shipping of my build to California and back for the show.  The Cali kids have it easy for this one but for those of us coming across the country, this is an expensive trip and takes a lot of time to get there and back.  Without Harley stepping up I almost had thoughts of having to pull out of the show..THANKS HARLEY!
