For 2015 The Big Mountain Run will feature builders from all over the Eastern and Central parts of the United States in the Second Annual Hillbilly Invitational. Each of these builders is hand crafting an amazing build for the event and will all be pictured here and in Cycle Source Magazine. The winner also gets automatic entry into the prestigious “Artistry in Iron” invitational at Las Vegas BikeFest this year so the stakes are high. Leading up to the event we want to give you a little background on each builder and today we are proud to introduce a new builder for the 2015 Hillbilly Invitational, Nick Beaulieu.
Nick Beaulieu is a 29 year old custom motorcycle enthusiast from the small town of Windham, Maine. Nick started his interest in motorcycles while taking a high school welding class and watching the original bike build offs on TV. After graduating high school he enrolled into American Motorcycle Institute (AMI) in Daytona Beach. After AMI Nick moved back to Maine and worked for a local motorcycle shop and then moved to New Hampshire to turn wrenches for a Harley dealership. Nick moved back to Maine the summer of 2013 and started Forever Two Wheels after spending 4 years in NH. Nick got invited to 2014’s Laconia bike build off during the 91st bike week rally. Coming home with the win Nick got back to work and started net working, now he is working on customer motorcycles, custom builds, and traveling to rallies installing for J&P cycles. FTW is currently working on his Artistry In Iron build that will be at Las Vegas BikeFest to compete with 20 of the top builders in the world and one of the invited builders in Cycle Source’s Hillbilly Invitational at BMR.

Your participation will be required whether you are attending Big Mountain Run or not. The way the winner of the Hillbilly Invitational is decided is based on a three-way vote. First is a panel of judges at the event site, the second is decided by the builders themselves and the third is where you come in. When we get to the Big Mountain Run Event Site we will be posting their builds on Facebook and Instagram. 33% of the overall vote will be based on the number of likes each builder gets from social media so stay tuned.
