Born-Free 7 Invited Builders Carmine and Jason of Visionary Cycle Products


Its rare that we have "teams" as builders, but sometimes guys just work better together and Carmine and Jason of Visionary Cycle Products in New York are two such dudes. If you haven't seen all the parts that their company VCP makes by now you need to check em out!
CLICK HERE for their website.

In addition to running a busy company and working jobs they also find time to build nice bikes. Here is what they say about their BF7 build:
"We are extremely excited to be building a bike for Born-Free 7 this year. We are going to put together a mix of some of our production parts that we make for Visionary Cycle Products along with some custom one off parts for the bike.
 
The base of the bike is built around an OEM early 1937 Knucklehead frame that was modified by going slightly up and out in the front of the frame and shortened and narrowed to rear section of the frame to pull everything in tight and fill a lot of the gaps.
 
The engine for the bike is going to be an early 1950's set of OEM Panhead engine cases that will be setup as an 88" engine. We are running dual front heads with dual Amal carbs which will be modified with accelerator pumps. The internals of the engine are made up of Truett and Osborne custom lightweight flywheels and rods, custom Baisley built OEM rockers modified with roller tips, lightweight cam chest gears, and a custom cam built by Leineweber. The whole engine combination should make for a fast revving powerful engine.
 
The final vision for the bike is basically a trimmed down slimmed down lightweight chopper that can handle the harsh streets of NY where we live, that is capable of weaving through the tight traffic to get where it needs to go.
 
We are really looking forward to being out at Born-Free again this year for the show, and cant wait to see some of the other Invited Builder Bikes that are being done for this years show. See you in June - Visionary Cycle Products"

Mama Tried and the Street 500 Giveaway in Milwaukee


 We had a blast at the Mama Tried show in Milwaukee over the weekend thanks to Warren and Scott that put on the event. In a city already rich with motorcycle history these guys have put together a show that has become a must-see in two short years.
They also let us use it as a place to giveaway the Harley-Davidson "Thresher" Street 500 we had built last year for BF6 by Brandon of Brawny Built and
Speed Merchant. The bike was one fo the first custom Streets built and was featured on the cover of HOT BIKE magazine and numerous other places. One lucky guy named Scott Takes had his ticket pulled and was there at the show...the rest is history! Scott is a very talented and does a lot of paint work, you can follow him HERE on his instagram. It turned out to be a bit of a Cinderella story for us because we always hope our bikes go to good homes and even though we didn't really know Scott it turned out that he has painted several of our invited builder bikes over the years as well as many other cool scoots. He also received a new Biltwell Gringo helmet with the bike. Congrats to Scott and thanks to all that helped with the Street Project including a big thanks to Harley-Davidson.

Don't forget we are giving away 3 more bikes at Born-Free this summer, don't miss out!!

OF course no trip to Milwaukee would be complete with lots of fried cheese curds and a visit to the Harley Museum! This place is heaven on earth for us, plus they had a new photo exhibit you gotta check out.
