Intriguing book…A must-have collector’s piece for the biker’s bookshelf –Born to Ride

Dave Perewitz has always let his work speak for itself: A brief glance at-let alone a ride on-one of his custom creations, with its perfect blend of engineering, design, aesthetics, performance, power, personality, and beauty, says volumes about why Dave is one of the top chopper builders in the world. Here, for the first time, Dave Perewitz tells his story. With journalist and longtime motorcyclist Mike Seate, Perewitz describes the long years, hard work, and unflagging passion that transformed him from a kid with his first motorcycle (a 1964 Harley-Davidson Sportster) into a star riding his latest creation into the Easyriders Bike Show in Dallas while the cameras of the Discovery Channel rolled. The autobiography of a man who has been a major influence in the custom motorcycle industry for 30 years, this absorbing book offers a rare look at how a self-taught designer, mechanic, painter, and fabricator managed to build the American dream his own way, bike by custom bike.


For 40 years, Dave Perewitz has been building and crafting custom-designed motorcycles for everyone from your next-door neighbour to celebrities. His skill and artistry have earned him a reputation for excellence that is unsurpassed.
