Lee from Lee’s speed shop rebuilt the 1940 motor for Mr. Baas
This is a 1952 dual carb drag race inspired Panhead built by Mr Baas for Born Free 5 last year.
Last summer Mr. Baas was an invite builder for the largest chopper show in the country which takes place In Silverado, California at the Oak Canyon Ranch. His 1952 dual carb Panhead won the Best Panhead award and a invite back to again compete this year. This years build will be done with the help of the chopper class students and take place primarily in the school chopper lab. The build is a 1940 ULH flathead Harley-Davidson! Stay tuned for updates and pictures as this build begins to take shape.
We will be building custom stainless exhaust for the S&S tribute bike, the Sugar Bear springer Harley Museum Bike, the 1952 Born Free Dual Carb panhead build as well as the other bike projects we have going on in class. Check out CONE and support our sponsors MADE IN THE U.S.A.

A message from Kevin Baas:
“The bike was entered in the professional builders Open Class and took first place honors. I am proud of the students hard work and as always the show was a great way to promote the good things going on in Bloomington schools.”
