Oh Baby.

Anthony is selling his shorty GMC Van. Contact him directly@


I went to the Isle Of Man TT back in the 90's and have never forgotten the experience. I'm Jonesing to go back so bad. Especially after talking to Jeff and Dustin. I mentioned on the COC blog that if you have just an ounce of motorcycling in your blood then you have to go at least once in your life. The greatest road race in the world. If you think doing a burn out makes you a tough guy then watch this brilliant video and think again. These are quite simply the bravest blokes on the planet. Thanks Paulo

Wil's BBQ. The Day After Born Free.

The perfect end to a brilliant weekend. This is family.

So Gay.

Swap meet find. 5 yankee dollars.

Keep On Keepin' On.


Spotted this rad G12 chopper project at the Long Beach swap. It had a title too. How dangerous are those foot pegs??!! Although I think 1500 bucks was a little to much wonga.

Born Free Three

On route Friday afternoon. This was just after I got off the 5 freeway after splitting lanes for 50 miles through LA's finest Friday afternoon rush hour traffic. Good times ahead fo shure.

Got there late Friday afternoon. Set up day. Jason Craze's fantastic Knucklehead racer.

Cool shit. Yoshis K racer and CB750. Kiyo's knuckle. And I think the other knuck is Mike's. Again Friday afternoon.

The Haints wall climb.

Friday night. BBQ, Margarita's, good friends, some weed and a guy playing an acoustic guitar. A relaxed hippy thang.

Left side.

Show day, the view from our booth. Neto with his girlfriends helmet he just picked up from Paulo of Joe King.

Gen from Japan and that killer gas tank he painted.

Speedmetals Lucas's Viking shift knob.

I am going to apologise straight away. If you're looking for a definitive Born Free blog post then I'm afraid this isn't it. I really tried to take a lot of pics, honest, I really did. However, as last year, it was just so overwhelming. I didn't know where to start. Plus we were super busy. It was an amazing event, just amazing. A great location and so many fantastic bikes. All sorts too, choppers, bobbers, cafes, blobbers, mulobers, robbers etc. It was perfect. Huge props to Mike, Grant and Josh for putting this together. For me on a personal note it made me so happy to see how big today's motorcycle culture has grown, and in a really good way too. Long may it continue. All I would say for that to happen is to keep an open mind. That's all it takes really.
Peace, love, dope.

Do My Feet Look Big In These?

Tighty Whiteys. Converse in the sale at Marshalls right now. $24. Heading out to Born Free tomorrow. Not in these shoes of course, that would be silly. It's going to be a fantabulous weekend.

Davide's WOD Part 3

I don't know if anyone remembers the post I did awhile back about our friend Davide in Italy, who has always dreamed of owning his own wall of death? Well just to re cap, he works for low wages in a shoe shop in Milan, has a very supportive wife and a wonderful baby daughter and has been basically saving forever and a day to try and make it happen. The last post showed the wall he purchased in Austria. Here's the latest.

"Ciao Fratello, how are you.
Finally every single piece of my Wall of death motordrome is at my home.
Patience is a great part of me.
Next step , building up in a backyard and ride in it.
Look at the pix.
See you very very soon.
PS: great and funny video of you and Dean drinking that disgusting drink that you damn brit call Tea."

Davide has now rebuilt the motors in the 2 Indian Scouts and has got hold of a 125 Gilera to practice with. This time next year he will be giving up his job and touring Europe. Love it.

The Salt Ghost

See it on September 16th right here.....
