Ten custom touring bikes from the Perewitz Show

It's like the Westminster Dog Show, only cool and not creepy.

When you make paint the focus of a custom car or bike show, you're bound to get some really wild artwork showing up at your door. Airbrush exhibitionists from miles around flock to events like that. Why wouldn't they? Shows like that are the perfect opportunity to show off and drum up new business in the bargain. Attach a big name like Dave "The King of Flames" Perewitz to the event, set it during Daytona Bike Week, and you'll get even more awesome art being shown off on two wheels.

This year's Perewitz Custom Paint Show took place on Wednesday of this week in Ormond Beach. If you're following our other galleries here and at the Street Chopper site, you already know all of this. If not, you should check them out. This bagger gallery isn't the last you'll see of this year's show, either. John Jackson went to town on the event with his camera and didn't miss a thing.

Here's a look at some of the tanks, too.
