Waterbury, Connecticut – Fowlers Distribution is very proud to announce our newest industry partner as we have come to an agreement to sponsor Steve Garn at Brew Bikes.
Steve is an industry associate of Joe Distefano, Fowlers Distribution marketing and sales consultant, and has set up this deal for us.
“Though it is not a huge sponsorship, we know as we are all family people and family owned businesses, every little bit helps. The company director, Sasha Fowlers was instant in her support of the program. In fact, we will go a step further to assist in the marketing of Brew Bikes and the racing and bike show competition efforts throughout the year via the resourse of Pro Riders Marketing.” Said Joe Distefano.
In a statement from Steve “Brewdude” Garn, he says “As we prepare for the 2014 motorcycle shows and East Coast Timing Association’s (ECTA) race season at the Ohio Mile, we thank you so much for your support.
In 2012, BREW had a GREAT year! The Honda CB350, named 9605, tied for 1st place in the Performance Class at the World Championship Show of Bike Building in Sturgis. After a tie-breaker, 9605 received 2nd place, losing to 4 time World Champion Aft Customs. Next, the bike 9605 received Editor’s Choice from Cycle Source Magazine. Over the years BREW now has over 50 awards from major shows and also named 2008 Easyrider Old School Builder of the Year.
BREW also had a successful year at the Ohio Mile while achieving 8 new land speed records with the CB350 and the 1948 Harley Davidson WL45. In all total, BREW now holds 15 land speed records with ECTA.
While 2012 was a very good year for BREW, 2013 was even better! BREW was invited, and accepted, to show the new bike that we built in the Lichter Exhibit, located at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD. Michael Lichter each year has an exhibit for the week in Sturgis. He also hosts a VIP party that is attended by the Who’s Who of the motorcycle industry including several magazines from across the globe. The new bike, which was unveiled there is also our new land speed race bike that Brew will race this 2014 season.
The bike will also be the subject of tech articles that I write for The Horse Magazine. The Horse is the #1 chopper magazine sold and can be found at Wal-Mart and other magazine/book stores.
The bike will then be raced at the ECTA Ohio Mile hopefully to set several land speed records. Bonneville and Loring are possibilities also for the 2014 race season.
We have set our sights on 2014 and the racing of this new bike. The new bike is a 1974 Yamaha RD350. It has the first frame built in the USA with Reynolds Technology 853 Air Hardening steel. This super steel is 4 times stronger than regular steel used in frames. It is also a featherbed frame which is a favorite for vintage enthusiasts. The RD350 had a stock weight of 374lbs and 35 HP. This new bike is 243lbs and over 60 HP!
The other bike Brew will be racing is a 1948 Harley Davidson 45 Flathead. It is a full custom race bike and has already achieved 4 land speed race records.
Both bikes will also be shown at different events this year.”
In response to this, Sasha Fowlers said “We are very happy to be part of this exciting season coming for Brew and look forward to working together for sometime to come as we can easily see both Steve, his company, and all of us at Fowlers are on the same page…….old school values, hard work, and top quality in everything we do”
So, be on the lookout for great things from this combination of Brew Bikes and Fowlers Distribution in the future.
