BORN-FREE 5 Builder Scott "T-Bone" Jones
Posted: Apr 01 2013
We stopped by Noise Cycles last week to catch up with T-Bone as he get's down to business on the bike he is building for the builder invite. A 52' EL Panhead motor will sit in the drop seat swingarm pan frame. The motor will be taken to 88 cubic inches with a 4 5/8" stroke and lightened Truett & Osborn flywheels. S&S pistons, a compression ration of 9:5-1, Andrews B grind cams and shovelhead intake valves will all help wake this thing up and endure the pounding that Scott will put it through. We talked about the inspiration behind the bike and Scott hit on dirty street racing as the term that came to mind. Scott mentioned that he would incorporate some removable body work to lean it down when this thing hits the strip. A small secondary tank will reside under the main removable tank for use when it's go time. A set of Noise trees sets the tone for the front end and that large drum will help slow it all down. Take a look at Scott's builders video and stay tuned as his bike comes together. Thank you T-Bone for having us over to your shop.....
