Good times and great bikes in neighboring Cleveland
Words by Kurt Diserio — Photos by Alexa Diserio
We ventured northwest to check out Fuel Cleveland in late July, an invitational custom motorcycle show put together by the great folks at Lowbrow Customs, The Gasbox, and Forever the Chaos Life. The show was perfectly curated with a selection of mind-blowing motorcycles that I’m sure caused many attendees to impulsively jump on Craigslist and start a new build. I even overheard an old time biker complimenting the wide array of custom bikes on display, noting the mix of Triumph and Japanese choppers and cafe racers with classic Harley-Davidson and Indian models. Representing Pittsburgh, Brian Petronchak of Revelry Custom Cycles was invited for his beautiful 1966 Triumph TR6.

In addition to the bikes and vendors, Fuel Cleveland showcased artists, painters, and photographers from the industry. With walls displaying custom painted fuel tanks and large photo prints, the show had somewhat of a gallery feel. Crowds gathered outside of the event in all directions throughout the day. Even after leaving, it was easy to spend hours admiring the endless number of garage built bikes that filled the streets and surrounding parking lots. This gave the day another level of excitement and proved that the custom motorcycle community is still alive and thriving like no other.
