Vanson Leathers BF7 Sponsor


Vanson Leathers is one of our Top Sponsors for BF7 & we could not be more excited about having them as part of our extended Born-Free family. Here's a little write up about the company & the generous gift they are providing to our Invited Builder Group. 
 
 
 
Last year Vanson Leathers celebrated our 40th year making motorcycle apparel in the USA. One of the many events we were able to attend in 2014 was Born-Free 6.  We had heard about it for many years, but once it became a two-day event  we knew we had to be there. What we experienced was an amazing group of vendors, builders and community. Upon returning to Massachusetts we knew we wanted to be a part of it somehow.
 
We are excited to be a Top Sponsor of Born-Free 7 this year and pleased to announce we are providing all the Invited Builders a custom Vanson Leathers Born-Free 7 Revolver Vest.

This vest was co-developed with Walter Gemeinhardt from Kickstart Cycle Supply.  He wanted a "riders" vest, so he told us everything a "rider" would want: gun pocket, media pockets, sunglasses holder, even a headphone wire pass through are some of the many features of this vest. It is handmade in Massachusetts from our medium weight leather called Firenze.

We are very excited to be joining the list of the other amazing sponsors this year and to be able to give the invited builders a piece of Vanson.  Thanks to Grant & Mike for inviting us in the Born-Free family. See you all in June!

What Is A Grass Pass & Why Do You Need One

One of the many benefits of the BF7 Grass Pass wristband is how easy and quick you get into the show. You don't need to park your bike, take off your helmet pay at the gate and then hopefully ride if we are not already full. The wristband saves you time and helps us keep traffic flowing smoothly. It also allows you to have your bike on the show grounds parked on the grass and part of the action. Whether you want to show it off and have it judged or just have all your friends parked together hanging out around the bikes....the Grass Pass is the way to do it. Once we are full all bikes must park in the parking lot. Every year before noon the show is completely full and this year it will probably be even earlier...that's why you need it. Even if you show up later in the day if you have the Grass Pass on your wrist you will be let in...full or not!!  Do yourself a favor and get yours now.

Go Takamine is the Japanese Steve McQueen. Dirt or street... track or strip ! Go can build'em all, ride 'em all and do it with style! Brat Style ! Go is back again to build The Chout.

We are excited for his new life in So Cal and can't wait to see The Chout finished at BF7. His builder video is coming soon.












BF7 Invited Builder: Jason Weber


ATR LET ME RIDE from Mark Choiniere on Vimeo.
Jason checks in for the first time this year with his BF7 Idea: My Born-Free build got off to a rough start. I kept bouncing back and forth between a few different directions to go with it considering the caliber of bikes already being built for the show. In the end, I went with what kinda fits in my skill set range and particular taste and that's just a simple, fairly stock wheelbased 60's-ish style Panhead chopper.

The basic approach is to keep the overall look like that of all those bikes we love in all the old biker flicks but throw in some little tricks here and there. The one thing I wanted to do going into this build was to do a chrome framed bike but at the same time, not build an over the top show bike.  So I'm trying to figure out a happy medium of those two ideas. I'm also narrowing an I-beam springer about a 1/2" per side. It's a lot of work for something that will probably go unnoticed. A little de-raking in the frame, custom bars, 21"+18" wheel combo, a slightly different seating deal and a tall sissybar pretty much sum up where I'm going with this thing.
