One of America’s best-known motorcycle builders and customizers, Dave Perewitz, often called the master of “art in motion,” will sign autographs at the PPG exhibit during the Goodguys PPG Nationals July 10 – 12, at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio.
Regarded as a living legend among hot rod, street rod, and motorcycle enthusiasts, Perewitz is the force behind Perewitz Cycle Fabrication, his family-run shop in Bridgewater, MA. A gifted custom painter and devotee of PPG products, Perewitz is known for his one-of-a-kind, hand-built creations and awesome flame designs – a combination of design, engineering, performance and beauty.
Perewitz’s reputation for excellence gained broader awareness when he competed in two Biker Build-Offs for the Discovery Channel’s popular cable program. Many celebrities, including Hulk Hogan, Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford, NASCAR’s Tony Stewart, Ray Evernham, Kyle Petty and others, have commissioned him for custom motorcycle builds. He recently ventured into street rod designs when he teamed with Factory Five Racing and Street Rodder magazine to build a stunning orange FFR ’33 Hot Rod. This awesome hot rod will be displayed at the PPG Vibrance Show Truck in Columbus.
Perewitz will appear and sign autographs at the PPG Vibrance Show Truck Friday, July 10 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm and on Saturday, July 11 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.
PPG will also present a seminar covering the Vibrance Collection® and Deltron® product lines along with the latest in PPG waterborne technology. The seminar is scheduled for Saturday, July 11 from 1:45 pm to 2:30 pm, and will give special attention to the creative possibilities PPG products afford customizers.
This is the 12th year PPG has sponsored the Goodguys Nationals. Goodguys is the world’s largest rod and custom association with membership approaching 70,000 nationwide. According to Marc Meadors, Goodguys president, “the Goodguys PPG Nationals has become the mid-summer meeting place for the entire hot rodding community.
