The Tucker Field Marketing team landed in Orange County on the Thursday before Born Free and headed to City of Industry for The Stampede. The event served as a pre-game of sorts to the actual show on the weekend and featured an Invited Builders Meeting followed by flat track racing at the Industry Hills Expo Center, including an X Games Minneapolis Super Hooligans qualifier.
At the Stampede, we met up with David Morales and Fabian Campos from the Denton Moto Collective for a quick interview about David’s entry in the Born Free Invited Builders Show with his 1957 Triumph, “Freebird.” For David, Freebird connects the hot road culture and America in the 60s and 70s. It was impressive to hear David speak so passionately about his inspiration for the build, and he felt honored to be one of the 28 invited builders.
Saturday and Sunday was the actual Born Free Motorcycle Show, which takes place at Oak Canyon Ranch in Silverado, CA. The diversity and level of creativity of the bikes on display is astounding. There are the bikes ridden to the show by everyday riders and the A+ people watching. Fans and bike builders mingle to bench race and share stories with one another of late nights in the garage after putting in 10-hour days at their “real job.” Born Free is an excellent example of what makes motorcycle culture so appealing—cool bikes and fascinating people in an idyllic setting. Here’s our look at Born Free 11.
