Turner Cycles Chop-A-Billy Bike Show by Valgal

2019 has come and is almost gone already… Biketoberfest always means the beginning of fall… we here in Florida wish the weather would remember that…. Hot as Hell this year but at least it didn’t rain on us til late Friday night…

Turner’s Cycles had a GREAT turnout for their Chop-A-Billy Bike Show that OSB Magazine sponsored on Friday afternoon… Bruno Guillory took Best of Show with his 1953 Pan head… His beautiful bike will be featured this month in the web site issue AND in the next print copy!… Check out the pictures of all the winning bikes, like and share too… they worked hard on these bikes and it shows!… Thank you to everyone for showing your support for both Wendell Turner and Me (Valgal) we work hard to bring you the events and fun going on around Brevard county and surrounding areas…



Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Chopper Show by Miserable George

Like almost every other Chopper Show at Willie’s….the weather was perfect…maybe even a bit cooler…!!!  Our featured model of the day-Renea Hicks- was already hard at work when I got there, posing with a preselected bike, and, it seemed that every time you’d look at her, she had on a different outfit!!! Kudos to her….she worked super hard that day!! Usually, Biketoberfest features a slightly smaller crowd than Bike Week. Well, it started out that way, but as the day wore on, that crowd really grew!! As always too, lots of lovely ladies gracing the grounds in all sorts of eye-catching outfits, and speaking of “eye-catching” , our friend, Ellie, made the scene a little later in the day. Also on the grounds, were Dave Perewitz and daughter, Jody, holder of the womans’ motorcycle speed record…she raced at the Sons of Speed Races the following evening. We ran into “Orange John” Marinelli , former National Record holder in MC Drags, and lady drag racer Lily Padd…very exciting to see all these “fast” people!!! Rev. Al gave the invocation, and the awards for bike show winners were given out. Nice to see ol’ Roadside Marty again, AND, his Dad was there too. They also had a chopper in the competition. Oh yeah, I also ran into Lulu, my old boss!!! I tell ya….Willie runs one hell of a show…always the Thursday of Bike Week(s)…make it if you can. Nice to see all the Vets there again too…GOD BLESS ‘EM. Until next time…stand up for your country, and support our troops…God Bless America…

Awhile back, Val and I traveled north to Palm Coast to shoot a drag bike(Featured in OSB), and while we were there, in rolls this 1960 Pan-Shovel, built by Larry Krouse, and now owned by Maniac Roberts. No, I have no idea why they call him “Maniac”…!!!

The 74 CID motor is 1960, set in a 1961 hardtail frame…no stretch, but, some moulding. The motor boasts solid lifters, S&S carb.,and an Andrews 480 cam. Power gets to the road through a mainly stock 1960 HD Tranny. Bike also features an antique taillight, and a hand made ostrich skin seat…neat!!!

Gracing the machine is our model for the day….Lauren…!!!
