onimotorworks Ohana time at Born Free this weekend. Didn't quite get to see everyone but with around 30,000 in attendance that can be hard to do. Some random photos I took through out the day.
And congratulations to Oliver @thecutrate for winning the top spot for the Born Free 7 invited builder award!

onimotorworks Can't believe Born free 7 is already here... And I can't wait to check out all the bikes and especially this years builder invites. Always a good time and sometimes the once a year where I get to see distant friends.
Here I am at Born Free 2 feeling really stoked and confused that I won the Best Original award picked by @chopperdaves . Can't thank, @large_hands_grant and @mikedavis70 enough for putting on the best show there is. Congrats on the 7th year running.

onimotorworks Here is another grip design that will be manufactured shortly. Just a few tweaks to the prototype before it goes into production. If you're a fan of the Mid-Century Modern movement these grips are for you as it pays homage to one of the most influential designers of the times.

onimotorworks Picked up these really neat pins from @goodarthlywd . Amazing craftsmen within those walls. And if you're going to Born Free 7, check their booth out. They are also a sponsor for the builder invite this year and will be gifting each of them with a limited/Born Free 7 Belt Loop Buddy

onimotorworks Home stretch for the Born Free 7 builders. This photo is from a little more than two years ago when I had the awesome opportunity to be apart of the Born Free 5 builder invite. Good times and stressful times for sure! Glad I got to experience it. If you haven't checked out the latest updates on the invited builders go see them at @bornfreeshow ... Or better yet, go to the show and see them in person.

onimotorworks I'm proud to introduce @sleepersspeedshop . It can best be described as a four wheel/motorsport version of Oni Motorworks. The opportunity couldn't have come at a better time to team up with some great people on this adventure.
Really appreciate the support. Thanks guys!

LOTO TO'A

Tongan for Brave, Courageous.

Growing up I always wanted to turn pro and have my own pro model with my art...never went pro, but the dream never died...over the years I've been fortunate to design some cool things, I even had the opportunity to share my Tongan culture and heritage with the BMX community when I designed the PRIMER Series for Sunday Bikes, but in the back of my mind, my dream of having my own board still was boogieing around...so after all this time, I am excited to share with you all my first board...LOTO TO'A.

I dedicate this board to my Father, Eneasi Taufa Kavapalu, for teaching us how to be brave, how to be courageous and most importantly going after our dreams! This ones for you pops! Ofa Lahi Atu!

Last but not least... #LivingTheDream #LonelyTeardrop 🏾🏾🏾

onimotorworks Typically I like to build and blueprint my own engines but when you have the opportunity to buy a rebuilt CB750 Sandcast engine from @kiyosgarage , you do it. In case you don't know, Kiyo builds some of the raddest bikes around whether it is American, Japanese or British. Thank you Kiyo and thank you @large_hands_grant for the heads up.

onimotorworks Grips are about go into production. Here is one of two sample grip designs. This one is based off a traditional Japanese pattern from the 1800's. I'll be doing some testing with different durometers and wear.

onimotorworks Another CB77 alloy fuel tank. Like most parts I build, I try to keep it to that era of the bike. This tank was done similar to an RC166 without being too literal.

onimotorworks So great to see these Skyline GTR's together. Lucky to have worked on all of them... Couple of them have been in my life for nearly 15 years. Great to get back on them and even more rewarding seeing the Dsport R33 RH8 do an 8 second pass in the 1/4 mile.

onimotorworks Caught up with @brawnybuilt over the weekend and got to check out the bike he's building for #HotBikeSpeedandStyle debuting at Born Free 7. The donor bike/engine is the new Harley Davidson 750. This photo doesn't do it justice. The detail to style and function is impeccable. A lot of really rad companies are helping out the build. One of which I have been working with for years. Great to see this cross over from @aemelectronics . Can't wait to see this bike at the track!

onimotorworks Finally made it to @goodarthlywd to check out their workshop and the preview of the #Bornfree7 goodies. Love the enthusiasm these guys have for their craft. If you have a minute check out their site. You'll be blown away with the detail and story behind every piece. Thank you Josh, Rach and Chris. Can't wait to do a future project some day.
