Perewitz Paint Show Daytona 2017

Though the Perewitz Paint Shows are relatively new on the scene, it’s taking little time for Dave and Jody’s gathering to gain steam. This year’s Daytona Bike Week show filled the perimeter of the vast Russ Brown Pavilion at Destination Daytona, Jody P. stating there were officially 55 bikes entered in the show, though many more streamed in over the course of the afternoon. Entries in the show were a cross-section of current crazes, a bonanza of big wheeled baggers with big dollar paint mixed with a sprinkle of T-barred club-style FXRs, garage builds and choppers mixed in between. Jody and Dave collaborated to paint the “Best of Show” trophy, while Bones and others dabbled and daubed on the other sweet trophies. Not surprisingly, the Hamsters were well represented, and even the first family of custom bike building – Arlen, Cory and Ness stopped by to check things out.
