From the Born-Free website:
The annual Born-Free Vintage Chopper and Classic Cycle Show takes place at Southern California’s majestic 17-acre Oak Canyon Ranch . Born-Free has quickly become “the” place for old and young from all over the world to ride in, see, and talk about old iron for one day. Born-Free brings together tens of thousands of eager spectators and participants as well as over 150 vendors and sponsors, live music, an AMCA regional swapmeet.
The Born-Free Show is a back to basics show built on this impromptu action of people building and riding their vintage Harleys, Hondas, Indians, Triumphs (and more) into the show which then becomes “the show”. This is a place where the classics take the spotlight. The show is open to all makes and models and is laid back with voluntary registration and a handful of awards and prizes, but Best In Show gets a trip for themselves and their motorcycle to the Mooneyes Hot Rod & Custom show in Yokohama, Japan this December!
Inside the show there is a special Invited Builder area where 25 up and coming motorcycle builders from all around the world will be debuting the bikes they’ve been building just for this event over the past year. These guys are craftsmen, small shop owners, and garage builders doing their best to push themselves to build something that is unique, well thought out, and finely finished.
