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.

Born Free 4

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.

Old cars are everywhere in So-Cal and being used regularly and not just to go some shitty ass cruise on a Saturday night. the black Chevy hardtop and 54 Chevy wagon belong to the ol timer that owns Pacific Coast Choppers where BF1 was help, a right good old curmudgeonly fella.

A wonderful "Alabama" style tattoo on ape knuckle's lower leg
You probably don't know this, but the swastika is an ancient symbol, blah, blah, blah.........
Dwayne getting a hair cut from Brian, the most awesome carpenter in the world, he built Tubb's office in 3 days flat.

Born Free 4

LB airport, the first one built in the LA area, remains pretty much unchanged since 1941
The first pic I took when I landed at LB airport, things only got worse.
