Born-Free Motorcycle Show Attracts Big Stars, Badass Bikes
Custom builders, two-wheel enthusiasts, rock bands, and superstars descend on Silverado, California, for one wild weekend.
For nine years now, the Born-Free Motorcycle Show has brought awesome builds, incredible racing action, killer music, and copious amounts of beer to Silverado, California, in late June. Much more than just your average, boring exposition, Born-Free attracts party goers and motorcycle lovers from around the globe — not to mention some pretty cool celebrities, too.
This year’s event took place on June 24 and 25, and after watching Revolver Magazine‘s coverage, we can safely say that you should add this one to your calendar for next year. Aside from the countless jaw-dropping custom chopper builds, you’ll find plenty of hot vintage motorcycle racing action. Making the scene even more exciting was the addition of cool guys like former pro skateboard legend and current motorcycle racer Steve Caballero.
Born-Free focuses mainly on vintage motorcycles and choppers, but all bikes are welcome. Even better, a total of three Harleys were given away this year: a 2017 Lowrider S, 1951 Panhead, and a custom-built 1942 Knucklehead. Born-Free also invites a host of custom builders each year who construct some amazing rides just for the show.
Despite the diverse nature of the Born-Free Motorcycle Show, one thing remains constant, and that is a love for vintage motorcycles and the culture it represents.
And if you get tired of looking at motorcycles (yea, right!), there are always plenty of other activities to keep you busy. Attendees could grab a beer from some uniquely shaped taps and take in sounds from musicians like Riley Hawk. A nearby half-pipe was available for showing off some skateboarding moves. And the people in attendance were every bit as interesting and unique as the bikes themselves.
Despite the diverse nature of the Born-Free Motorcycle Show, one thing remains constant, and that is a love for vintage motorcycles and the culture it represents. So, go ahead and block out your calendar for next year because this is one event you won’t want to miss.
