This weekend, June 23 and 24, the Prism Supply crew is loading up and heading west for the 10th Annual Born Free Motorcycle Show.
This invitation-only event may just be the most prestigious of them all and the fact that we get to be a part of it every year recently really puts the butterflies in our stomachs. To have our name mentioned in the same sentence as some of our favorite builders in the world is truly wild!
This year, instead of building a bike for the show, we were asked to build a giveaway bike for one of the lucky attendees to win. We were given 100% creative freedom for the Born Free crew. They only thing they said they wanted is a “chopper.” So this is our take on a 1960’s inspired “chopper,” a bike that we believe is timeless and classic. The overall bike consist of: 1968 generator shovelhead engine, 18” & 21” wheels, 4.5” extended springer, stock panhead frame geometry, ⅞” handlebars that with an 8” rise.
This build all came together thanks to the help of a ton of great people and companies such as: WW Cycles (Wheels & Springer Front End), Derek Fearheiley (Engine rebuild), Matt Mcmanus (Transmission work), River Seat Co (seat), Boyle Custom Moto (Air cleaner), Throttle Addiction (Donor tank and fender), Lowbrow Customs (Fabrication bungs, Electrical wire, and many other misc. items), Nathan Sykes (Paint work) Prism - Zach, Jake, Mitch, & Rob (creativity, fabrication, assembly - basically the overall style and function of the build)
If you’re going to be joining us in Silverado, California for the show, be sure to check out our giveaway bike in person. Heck, you may even have a chance to win it! If you’re not going to make it out to the show this year, we’ve included a photo gallery of the finished build below, shot beautifully by our very own @prism_rob.
If you’re going to be at the show this weekend, in addition to seeing the bike, come hang out with us at our booth where we’ll be selling all sorts of merchandise including soft goods and motorcycle parts. If there are any Prism parts you’ve been eyeballing, but don’t want to pay shipping on, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday (6.20) with what you’re looking for and we’ll be sure to bring it out with us as long as it’s in stock.
