As with every Sturgis Rally I attend & shoot, 2019 was one to look back at. As you can guess, my preferred venue is the Buffalo Chip. I’ve become close friends with the folks at the Chip, and because of that, I’m able to watch how year by year, they expand the possibilities of their grounds with the most incredible entertainment, convenience of daily needs, bars & restaurants, fuel available on site, and so much more.
I wanted to add this post this morning as reminder of last year along with other past years, just CLICK HERE and it will take you to all of our Sturgis Rally galleries. Here are a few images to get your interest cooking…
One of my favorites, year after year, the Perewitz Paint Show. The imagination of the contestants baffle me sometimes, but CLICK HERE to check out this gallery, and scroll through the Daytona & Sturgis galleries to see other past Perewitz Paint Shows.
Best explained by this, Sons of Speed, created by Billy Lane of Choppers Inc, is a motorcycle race inspired by early 20th-century board-track racing. Open to the public, races occur regularly at Daytona Bike Week, Biketoberfest and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
We all just attended Arlen Fatland’s 50th anniversary party at what is now Billy Lane’s home for Choppers Inc on Main Street in Daytona with Rod Woodruff, Jack & Lynn Deagazio, Toni Woodruff, Marilyn Stemp, Jeff Zielinski, Cory Ness, Christine LePera, john marcella, Jody Perewitz, Zach Ness, Dave Perewitz, Timothy Remus, Billy Lane, Erin Lane, and many more. I wanted to share all of these images because it was a gathering of some of the industries most wonderful people. I spoke with Billy Lane & his wife Erin for a while over a few days time regarding the shop being purchased from Arlen, and it’s future. I will keep tabs with Billy on this project so that I don’t report incorrect news, but the idea is to make it a cool lounge more or less, highlighting future builders while honoring the past, so with that said, I will sit back and await the shops future & in October, I will do another shoot there & show you how Billy & Erin’s goal has moved forward.

Both myself (Jack McIntyre) and Chopper Dave busted our asses in Daytona during Bikeweek 2020 to get you all TONS of images. We’ve been uploading since last week, just about every image is now posted, but there are some last galleries still to load. Please enjoy our images, we’ve been doing this for decades, not for the money (it’s all free), we do it for you.
