Willie's Old School Chopper Show

 

This week we have a photo feature from Willie's Bike Show 2013 held at Willies Tropical Tattoo in Daytona Beach Florida. In my opinion, Willie's has grow to be one of the best chopper shows on the East coast.

 

I was there this past week bumping elbows and shooting for Chop Cult. I also manage to get an interview with the man himself. Lisa, our Editor, set up my meeting with him and she was spot on when she told me Willie is a classy dude. He was genuinely humble and gracious about what he and some of his friends have turned this show into over the years. Sort of like it’s not that big a deal... I say it is because there is very little in Daytona for proper chopper freaks and Willies show makes the trip worth while. It was by far the highlight of my Bike Week Trip.

 

The show has grown to be a virtual extravaganza of proper choppers with many awards from guests like Dave Perewitz, Led Sled Customs, magazine editors and executives like Englishman and Steve Broyles from The Horse and Chris from Cycle Source Magazine.  Guest tattoo artists, a live band, plenty of drinks, vendors, hot bar girls and if all that’s not enough the bikes in the parking lot are a show all their own!

 

For now here's some shots of the show but stay tuned in a few weeks we will have a full write up on this outstanding show, how it started, Willies story and the winners for 2013.
