SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2020 GREASY DOZEN BUILDER COLLECTIVE ARE NOW OPEN!!!

"Do you have a build that's been dragging, did life get in the way? It's time to dust it off! Once again, we are putting a focus on stalled projects and giving people support and a reason to turn out a show-quality bike they can be proud of!

First off, everyone always wants to know what they will get or how the winner is chosen. So let's clarify a few things it's not a competition all 12 selected builders get support via gift cards. There are technically 12 winners, chosen by our team with a lucky 13 winner announced the day after the first 12. The 13th is always a unique background story or someone in hardship, hence the lucky 13th!

Who can win? We focus on garage builders and small shops with two employees or less. We want to help people finish builds where life got in the way, giving them support and the camaraderie of connecting with 12 other builders via our builder group DM. You will have about six months to complete your build in time to attend the run. (Details to come about the run)

What you win is gift cards from a long list of great companies that have supported the #greasydozenbuildercollective to name a few: Old Bike Barn, Biltwell, Lowbrow Customs, Led Sled Customs, Indian Larry Motorcycles, ChopCult, and S&S Cycle. The Greasy Dozen Builder Collective has always been about giving back to the average joe that supports these companies, with support going directly to the builders from our awesome sponsors. Part of the DNA of the GD is that it's about giving back to the community, not monetizing it. The event its self, including fireside giveaways, cookout, preparty, bands, and camping, is 100% funded by oldbikebarn.com. We have given away over $100,000 in prizes and support this way, and while its work to put it on, its a labor of love to give something back to the motorcycle community." - The Greasy Dozen

Good Luck, everyone.

The zig zag pattern of Champion Grips is a perfect match with Firestone Champion Deluxe motorcycle tires. They also stand well on their own. Perfectly at home on a Harley Shovelhead or Sportster chopper, Honda cafe racer or Balkan M1 urban commuter.

Pairs of motorcycle grips have two different inside diameters. The left-hand grip (clutch side) is sized properly to be a tight fit over the bare handlebar. The right-hand grip is sized to be a tight fit over the throttle tube.

Juice Brake on a Rigid

You'll need to weld a "backing plate stay" on the lower frame tail for the backing plate anchor stud to bolt to . . . (you can see the narrow, nylon insert lock nut I use).  I left the original (mechanical brake) stay (front middle) in case I want to go back to mechanical brake sometime.

I run a continuous (Russell brand) stainless, braided brake line all the way to a triple junction mounted off my rocker clutch up front.  The top outlet of my 3-way junction has the hydraulic brake light switch.(I use that late model little bugger, availaable at any H-D dealership.  They run 'em on all the new bikes.(I keep a spare in my tool kit in-case the switch would leak, you'd have no brakes !
The opposite side of the 3-way junction has another braided line to my master cylinder.

This is the larger(later) version of the Harley hydraulic brake drum.  Maybe 1968-1972, I think?

The round hook-deal is a bungee hook for when I load it up for travel !
