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 and good friend to Cycle Source Magazine, RJ Powell of Cutting Edge Customs.
RJ is a 40 year old self-taught welder and was certified in his early 20’s. He has been building hot rods trucks and motorcycles since he was about 15 years old and is a motorcycle mechanic by trade. He has worked in several different shops over the years. Roughly 14 or 15 years ago he decided to go into business by himself with a window tinting shop but kept motorcycle fabrication and design as a side hobby which slowly turned into a full-time job, now Cutting Edge Customs. He is excited to show us what kind of builds he has to offer and is absolutely ecstatic to be invited to this event.

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. Keep watching for more info on Big Mountain Run as the event day gets closer. FYI, the link to our pre-registration is still open, so go sign up to save some money!

We are also proud to announce that this year’s Hillbilly Invitational is sponsored by MC Creations!
