Dave Perewitz


Custom motorcycle builder.
Developer of Perewitz Signature Series custom parts and accessories.

With more than 30 years experience as a custom bike builder, Dave Perewitz has gained a worldwide reputation as a true master.

A self-taught mechanic and fabricator, Perewitz entered the motorcycling world in 1967 when he bought a 1964 Harley-Davidson Sportster. He started out small, working on friends' machines, and eventually evolved his business into creating one-of-a-kind custom motorcycles that aren't merely show bikes,but also daily riders.

He has been featured on television in the Biker Build-Off II show. In the show, custom bike builders compete against each other to build a bike in a short amount of time, after which the public selects the winning bike. He also is involved in motorcycling safety, spreading the message in towns that host motorcycle rallies that drivers need to watch for motorcycles and motorcyclists need to ride safely.

Perewitz opened Perewitz Cycle Fabrication in Bridgewater, Mass.
