Common Tread

Born-Free 7 invited builders announced

Oct 01, 2014

Born-Free, one of the world's premier custom bike and chopper shows, has released the roster of invited builders who will compete in the seventh iteration of the event.

Invited builders include 2014 vets Go Takamine, Oliver Jones, Jordan Dickinson, and Paul Cox. Some of the notable newcomers: Roland Sands, of RSD fame, and Carmine Bellamore, of Visionary Cycle Prodcucts. A few builders have participated in previous BFs like Jeff Leighton, Bobby "The Leg" Middleton, and Joe Lingley, so there's a smattering of rookies and old hands putting bikes together for BF7.

Born-Free's 2015 lineup includes some of the up-and-comers in customs and choppers.

The Born-Free show has picked up steam since its inception, picking up Harley-Davidson as a sponsor in 2013. Its prestige in the custom and chopper world is rivaled only by the Brooklyn Invitational.

Born-Free 7 is slated for June 27-28, 2015.
