We will be holding the Robison's Rumble Friday March 16th at the Legendary Robisnon's Motorcycles on International Speedway. This event will celebrate the traditions, culture and history Joe Robison himself started 50 yrs ago. There will something for every vintage motors fans. We are still looking for Pin ups, bands, vendors and vintage cars and bikes to show. If you are interested in helping out, please contact me here: https://www.facebook.com/media/albums/?id=100000630951037#!/victorytattoo

Show starts at 10 am and ends at 5pm! Come celebrate vintage biker culture with us this Bike Week!

In 1961 Joe Robison worked for his brother Jack Robison at his Harley Davidson Dealership in Warren Ohio. After being contacted by the Harley Davidson Factory representative he was offered his own Harley Davidson dealership in Daytona Beach, Florida. Joe Robison moved his family to Daytona Beach and opened up ROBISON HARLEY DAVIDSON in 1962. The first location was on Balou Road where he stayed for approximately 1 year. He then moved to 508 W. Volusia Ave, now known as International Speedway Blvd. ROBISON MOTORCYCLES SALES and SERVICE is still in that location today. It has been basically unchanged for 48 years. Joe Robison still goes to the shop everyday to oversee that his customers are treated right, and that the coffee he makes personally is tasteful. He can be found sitting behind his desk and routinely gives what we call "the tour" of his very historically filled shop. It is full of rich Harley Davidson history including some of the very first Harley and Davidson family photos, early dealer conventions, racing on the beach, and much more. Joe Robison will always show you his picture of himself and his mtorcycle club "Warren Buckaroo's" escorting President Kennedy in the motorcade through Niles Ohio and tell a story of how the Harley Davidson Factory Racing Team would "burn the midnight oil" working on the factory bikes before races in the back of his shop in the early 70s and 80s.

I'll never forget Joe staying after shop hours so I could get a piston for my buddy's bike. We changed it out at the Nova campground.

Thanks again, Joe!
