Once upon a time it rode the earth as a ’49 Harley but those days are long dead and buried. Ben tells us that these days the old FL has all kinds of new organs breathing life into its bones. The motor is now a ’76 Shovelhead and there’s a turbo out of a GTR Skyline stuffing 22 pounds of boost down the throats of its S&S carbs. Scary, right?
Manifolds, oil tank, plenum and seat pan were all fabricated in Ben’s brother’s shed. Ben would like to know if it’s eligible for our Frankenstein customs show. Well, hell yeah, Ben!
If you have a crazy, ingenious, freaky custom motorcycle, whether you create these amazing machines for a living or it’s what you do in your spare time to keep sane in this crazy mixed-up world, bring it to the Freak Show Festival of Motorcycles and let the wider motorcycling community see what’s possible and drool over your creation. There’s prize money to be won, it’s a popular vote that decides the winner, and there’s no charge for entering your bike. We’re a rider’s festival!
