Part of what makes Daytona Bike Week so great is the diversity of the event. Attendees can see everything from Flat Track racing to the rat bikes parked outside of Willie’s Tropical Tattoo. With so much to cover it can be difficult to see it all so we have snap shots of everything here in our Daytona Bike Week Update!
Bikers rolled up under the Jesters Live pavilion for the Perewitz Custom Paint Show and spectators quickly followed in awe of the abstract rides. The bikes in this show were truly one of a kind artistic pieces, it was like a gallery for bikers.
Everyone made their way from Daytona Beach to Willie’s Tropical Tattoo for bikes, brews, and babes. Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Bike Show showcased both bizarre and one of a kind rides.
Local traders set up tents and brought out antique bikes to the Volusia Fair Grounds for a swap meet. Underneath the tents I found a vast sea of motorcycle parts and antique collectibles. It seemed like they had everything there from old carburetors to service manuals from the 1940’s. Every person I talked to was extremely friendly, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.
Daytona Bike Week wouldn’t be the same without racing so as tradition calls the top Flat Track racers in the world came to Daytona to duke it out on the dirt oval.
The Super Hooligan race had the crowd on their feet as the hooligans took the track by storm aboard custom Indian Scouts and Harley Davidson motorcycles.
Roland Sands Design dominated the night with Roland taking home the hardware and his team following close behind.
