PPG Automotive Refinish will give the motorcycle world plenty to look at and enjoy in booth 578 during the 14th annual V-Twin Expo, February 8-9, at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati. The PPG exhibit will feature motorcycle celebrities, custom bikes and new advanced refinish products that can help amateur and professional painters and builders turn imaginative paint schemes into reality.
The trade show, open exclusively to motorcycle retailers and manufacturers, is sponsored by Easyriders.
All show attendees are invited to the PPG booth where PPG has arranged for two of the custom motorcycle world’s stars, Dave and Jody Perewitz, to greet show visitors. The father-daughter duo will appear at the PPG booth Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon signing autographs and talking about the VIBRANCE COLLECTION custom finishes and DELTRON products—the PPG lines they use most.
Celebrated as the “King of Flames,” Dave Perewitz is one of America’s top motorcycle customizers and well known as for his signature blazing paint schemes. He consistently produces award-winning bikes at Perewitz Cycle Fabrication, his shop in Bridgewater, Mass., and will have a bike on display at the booth.
Jody Perewitz has her own respected credentials as a builder and is responsible for designing Perewitz brand merchandise. She’s also a record-setting rider and was the first woman to top 200 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats when she ran a record 203.11 miles per hour in 2011 on a custom American V-Twin bike built by Team J’Witz. She’ll have that bike on hand and be happy to tell visitors all about it.
PPG will also feature its complete line of refinish products with a special emphasis on DITZLER Hot Rod Black topcoat and the CRYSTALLANCE glass flake collection. Ditzler Hot Rod Black topcoat is part of the popular Vibrance Collection product line. The new topcoat provides a uniform, low gloss and deep-looking black finish designed to replicate the glory days of street rods and muscle cars. The Crystallance line offers six unique pigments—silver, sapphire, jade, garnet, topaz and opal—that create bright finishes with intense sparkle and flare.
Two additional outstanding motorcycles will show what can be achieved with PPG products. From Bill Steele’s Kustoms in Oakdale, Pa., comes the radical “Honey Bagger” with its one-of-a-kind gleaming gold finish. Steele created the Bagger’s unique look with ENVIROBASE High Performance waterborne basecoat, ONECHOICE SX-1071 Etch Prime, ECP15 A-Chromatic Surfacer, ECS25 Sealer and VC5200 Custom Clear from the PPG Vibrance Collection.
Also on display will be a custom blue, white and silver Harley-Davidson Road King from Steve’s Restorations & Hot Rods in Frankfort, N.Y. Steve Hale’s bike showcases a multitude of PPG products beautifully including Crystallance, Ditzler BIG FLAKE, PRIZMATIQUE pearl, Concept 2002 clearcoat and others. It’s drawing second and third looks wherever it’s seen.
