About the build:

“They are wicked cool little bikes,” said Jody Perewitz of Perewitz Cycle Fab when I asked what she thought of Strider Balance Bikes. In fact, she said she’d bought one for her niece and also told how a friend’s son got right on a mini bike after starting out on a Strider.

It was especially nice of Jody to be so positive because her Dad, custom builder and painter Dave Perewitz, had volunteered Jody to customize a Strider for the Flying Piston Breakfast – even before he asked her! But if you know Jody, you know she’s a sweetheart.

If you’ve seen her work, you also know she’s developing a talent. And while that might be aided by tutoring and proximity to her famous father, it’s also more apparent every day that she draws upon her own instincts and abilities. Her take on this tiny custom is evidence of that.

Jody’s Strider exhibits biker cues such as brass knuckles and skulls handled in a gentle, almost cartoon fashion that’s just right. Laid down with copious layers of pink, blue and purple metalflake, these elements combine for the perfect union of edginess and fun.

A wicked cool little bike? Yep, that’s exactly what Jody Perewitz brought to the Flying Piston party!

Watch for the 7 Strider Rider Customs to be displayed at motorcycle events and Strider races through next June. They’ll be auctioned off before the 2019 class is unveiled at the Flying Piston Builder Breakfast at the Buffalo Chip CrossRoads during the 79th annual Sturgis Rally.

 


About the Flying Piston Builders Breakfast

The Flying Piston Charity Breakfast, presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, is a celebrity-strewn meet & greet held at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip that brings together cutting-edge custom builders and motorcycle industry influencers to meet the public. The event supports veterans suffering from PTSD and provides technical education scholarships to students in South Dakota’s Black Hills.

An initiative with Strider Sports International sent Strider bikes to top name builders for customization. The Strider Rider Customs were unveiled at the 2018 Breakfast event at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. It was the first stop on their year-long tour. The Strider Rider Customs will be auctioned at the 2019 Breakfast, as a new group is revealed.
