South Yarmouth—The Cultural Center of Cape Cod will host two special events in association with the Art on Two Wheels Exhibit of rare Harley-Davidson motorcycles, both of them featuring record-holder Jody Perewitz. The first, a conversation and Q&A with Jody intended primarily for adults, will be held on Friday, November 15, from 7-9pm. Tickets are $20 and include access to Art on Two Wheels. The second, on Saturday, November 16, at 11am, will be family friendly and geared for kids. Tickets for adults are $20. Kids 16 and under are free. All will also have access to the exhibit. Fans of all ages won’t want to miss these two opportunities to meet a legend and spend time with 42 legendary motorcycles and four galleries of related artwork. Tickets are available on line at www.cultural-center.org or by calling 508-394-7100. The Cultural Center is located at 307 Old Main Street in South Yarmouth.
Jody has been around motorcycles all her life. She paved her way into history by becoming the first woman ever to ride an American V-Twin powered motorcycle at over 200 MPH. She currently holds 16 Land Speed records, one of which is a World Record, and has earned four AMA number one plates.
In 2018 Jody competed in the Motorcycle Cannonball on a 1926 Harley Davidson JD. She and two other women became the first females to complete the race. Jody also competed in the Motorcycle Chase in 2019, completing the entire race from the Canadian border to Key West, and she regularly competes in Sons of Speed vintage circle track races. In October, 2018, Jody took home the checkered flag on a 1920 Indian.
When not blasting down the Bonneville Salt Flats or cruising on vintage bikes across America, Jody handles the marketing and day-to-day activities including painting at Perewitz Cycle Fab in Halifax, Massachusetts. She works side-by-side with her father, award-winning custom bike building legend Dave Perewitz. Not only is Dave teaching her about the business but also how to paint. The Perewitz name is world renowned in the custom paint world for producing some of the most sought-after customs.
The Art on Two Wheels Exhibit at the Cultural Center closes at 5pm on November 24, so either of these events presents a great way to spend time with Jody and visit the bikes before they leave town. Tickets to the exhibit alone are $10 (free for kids $12 and under) and are available on line, by phone, or at the door.
