Brake a leg.

Rearbrake is working again, it was hard to find out what brake it was. Took the brakepads as a guideline and found out they were from a Kawasaki Z250 from the late 70's. Okay its a Japanese brake but so are your forks I guess. Replaced the rubbers, new oil and even bought new brakepads on the Dutch Graiglist.

The Greasy Dozen Garage Builder Collective 2016 is here!

By Bear-

Like we said the first year; it's not a tough guy thing it's about building / riding motorcycles and having fun!

Selection starts today and runs through May 21st at 8pm est.

Who Can Apply: Anyone can participate, 33 members, Flies, Cats, Zombies, Taco Eaters, Scooter Trash, Lurkers, the only group barred are Vegans...

You must be a home garage builder or small shop with 2 employees or less. This is not some corporate thing it's a very basic grassroots affair with a focus on building bikes! It's been that way since we originally approached Billdozer about it and so it will remain. Pulling together like-minded companies to help out new builders and up and coming shops with parts and support!

I had a good conversation with my friend Walter at Kick Start Cycle a few days ago. We talked about when the new scene emerged around 2005 and how things were really cool and drama free. It was finally a scene about the bikes and good times. There were few rivalries and anyone that wanted to bring that was quickly made aware that this was about riding motorcycles and having fun.

The Greasy Dozen Builder Collective embodies that spirit and I'm hoping this year we can gel some of the brotherhood and collective energy that made the first years so great..

The Greasy Dozen will continue to call Chop Cult home, but IG users and people from other corners of the internet may enter, all info updates winner and so on will be posted here to keep it simple You can add updates to your build thread here or IG etc but will continue to post progress and prize updates here. True to its form we will be getting back to the roots of brotherhood, community and collective effort that made the emerging nouveau chopper scene so great. We have opened it up to allow users of other forums or those who are exclusively on smartphones to participate.

All brands, all creeds, the only rule is be respectful to one another and make it about the bikes!

I want to thank Lisa Editor in chief here at CC for hosting us again and Allen and Brandon for your help and support.

Ok, let's get to the Bikes!!!

To Apply:

1. Follow @Oldbikebarn on IG as more details will be posted there as they develop.

2. You must post picture here in the Chop Cult thread or on IG of your current build or raw material tag @oldbikebarn and include #greasydozenbuildercollective2016 adding a few details about your plan and what category you wish to try for:

3 Short Chops

3 Long Bikes

2 Cafe

2 Oddball

2 Street tracker

3:Extra points are awarded for anything Starwars related in your submission.

4.Multiple unique posts are also encouraged, as they show your enthusiasm level.

Once chosen each builder can select how and where the will showcase their build using #hashtag #greasydozenbuildercollective2016

If you have questions you can email and he will help you out.

Builders will have 5 months to complete a bike and hopefully, attend the Greasy Dozen Run September 30, 2016, You can expect the usual format, a rowdy ride, bbq, corn boil and camp out at the Clark Family Farm.

In closing, I'll point out the prizes come in the name of the winner and are redeemable in the form of gift cards or promo codes. Handled clean and professionally, designed so nobody cheat anyone. The facts are this actually costs all the companies involved time and money. We work as a team to give something back to the community, and try to inspire more people to build their own bikes as they watch this unfold!

Now let's see them submissions! Winners will be selected May 21st

Big thanks to Phil Guy @burritobreath for the rad art,
