BIKES, BIKINIS, BEER & BEACH | VINTAGE DAYTONA BEACH BIKE WEEK

Daytona Beach during the Golden age of the ’70s & ’80s. Before Bike Week became some kinda three-ring commercialized circus of fake boobs on a stick– there were riders and vanners of a kindred spirit who came to hang out, party on the beach, and chill. They did it outta love instead of the hype. (And the boobs were real, man.) Kinda makes you wanna take it by force from the corporate pricks, and get back to what made it great in the first place– brotherhood, escaping the grind of the rat race, and finding a little soul on the road. My favorite Flickr find ever. Amazing shots ca. 1979 by Tom Reavis.
