Jody Perewitz has become one of the most recognizable women in the motorcycle industry today. Jody has paved her own way into history by becoming the first woman to ever jockey an American V-Twin powered motorcycle into the record books at well over 200 MPH. She currently holds 16 Land Speed Records, one of which is a World record.
In 2018 Jody competed in the Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Race. She rode a 1926 Harley Davidson JD. She completed all the miles from Portland ME to Portland OR becoming one of 3 women to complete all the miles on the Cannonball. Jody also completed in the Motorcycle Chase, another antique motorcycle endurance race across country on a 1936 Harley Davidson VLH. Once again completed all the miles from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Key West.
Old motorcycles seems to be a theme lately with Jody. She is currently completing in the Sons of Speed races. She rides 3 different motorcycles, a 1919 HD, 1920 Indian, 1951 WR 45, all with no brakes and no gears! These races are on embanked paved circle tracks. In October of 2018 she took home the checkered flag with a win at New Smyrna Speedway.
When Jody is not on two wheels she handles the marketing and most of the day to day activities at Perewitz Cycle Fab located in Halifax MA. She works side by side with her father legend Dave Perewitz. Having a great teacher Jody's knowledge grows everyday. The Perewitz name is world renown in the custom motorcycle industry for producing some of the most sought after customs.
