Born Free Texas, Mt. Enterprise, USA
The Born Free Texas idea was this: if thousands of California chopperistas can’t stay away from a friendly named canyon to gawp all day at vintage American motorized metal, why in tarnation shouldn’t that same idea work in Texas? Just swap the baseball cap against a ten gallon hat, drop the Vans in favour of some cool cowboy boots and Yee-haw!, Bob’s your uncle! The Lone Star state should be a-brimming with barn finds, discovered and undiscovered, they reckoned, and filled with dudes ready to appreciate a nicely customized Harley when they see one. So the Born Free creators called some friends, did some PR and fixed a date. As we had the Baja Twins (our narrow forked, magneto sporting rigid Shovels) over in California anyway for some road testing and photo shooting, we were ready to give it a go. So we brought the sleds to Mt. Enterprise, Texas (right out there in the boondocks) and hooked a left for the Yellow Rose Canyon to have a look see.
