1961 Cadillac Eldorado

She was originally called Le Mans and she was obviously changed for the 1962 Chicago Auto Show with a a wreath and crest on the trunk lid, the letters ELDORADO replacing the Le Mans badge and a grille that reflected the new 1962 models.She looks way better in this configuration and it would be historically accurate to restore her to this stage in her life. These pictures were sent from GM's archives, they were taken on the patio at the design studios in Detroit. There is tons of stuff slowly coming out about this car, it's exciting.

1961 Cadillac Eldorado

I just bought this, one of one, original Bill Mitchell design study shown at the 1962 Chicago Auto Show, it's totally unique, it has custom features out the ying yang, it's a dream car.

And here's my 59 Chevy custom

59 Imperial grille is in, I made the filler pieces between the headlight pods and grille from scratch, chromed by Spacecoast Plating.

This is the coolest mild custom 59 Impala I've ever seen.

Born Free 4, Satellite Wheels

Hallcraft Satellites, I have a set of these wheels that I'm gonna use on my next build, if there ever is one, they need rechroming which isn't gonna be cheap. Last post from BF, y'all should go, once.

1958 Rikuo Born Free 4

Remarkable 1958 Japanese 45 Rikuo built by license from HD. None of the parts look like they interchange with Harleys, at least superficially, but you can see the family link, the parts were definitely of inferior quality, very Japanese tin toyish but charming and beautifully designed. It belongs to Mooneyes, the pinstriping was done recently and it really suited this gem of a survivor.

More amazing bikes

Born Free 4

A selection of the fine motorcycles that were there, the level of quality and workmanship has gone beyond anything I've seen yet, these bikes are better than any built back in the day.

Born Free 4

Dwayne was riding Tubb's Arlen Ness built ironhead digger, it expired going up to BF4, when we got it back home I pulled the plugs, they were pure white and no compression on the back cylinder, as what happened when I rode his panhead last year, looks like dejavu all over again, poor Tubbs.
