Daytona Bike Week. Robison’s Motorcycle Sales And Service 50th Anniversary Party On March 16th.

I have a favor to ask all of you present in Daytona during Bike Week. To attend on  Friday March 16th  even for a short time if you are very busy,Robison’s Open House Party (11 am to 6 pm) to pay tribute to the 50th year that Joe Robison is in the motorcycle business. Almost all of you have ridden on International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona, but many have missed and never stopped by the Robison’s Motorcycle Sales And Service Shop.

Joe Robison was the original and only local Harley dealer in Daytona from 1962 until 1993 when he sold his dealership to Bruce Rossmeyer and changed his business to Robison’s Motorcycle Sales and Service, that, at one point, comprised a total of five buildings warehousing new, old, aftermarket, and used parts.  The Harley factory team would prepare and tune their race bikes at his shop and Joe was always in the pits during a race keeping things running smoothly. Robison remained popular with the racing set who sought out his mechanics and, especially for important races, the services of Robison himself. Today, Robison’s continues to specialize in motorcycles over 10 years old and assists with restorations at any stage. The shop also continues to maintain an extensive on-site inventory of never-used “old stock” parts still in their original packagings.

Robison’s Motorcycle Sales And Service is full of vintage and old racing bikes. With the help of Joe’s grandson, the shop still offers one of the best service in Daytona.  Stop by for any maintenance or repair and hear old Daytona racing stories by the man himself. And of course, please join the party Friday March 16th from 11 am to 6 pm. Food, refreshments and a band. I will stop by. Address is 508 W. International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona Beach. Tel: 386-255-6788. Robison Motorcycles.

    Robison’s represents authenticity with a capital “A”! You miss out on the real roots of Daytona and bike week if you don’t stop in – every year!

    My Florida columnist (SunDancer) covered his get-together last year for Thunder Press. I stopped by for a visit while she was there and she introduced me to the main man himself. What a great character. I had no idea this was his 50th anniversary. This stop should be included on everyone’s calendar during Bike Week. Those that just ride by without a visit are not in the the know and missing a ton of Daytona history…
    PS to Rodent: Will we see you there this year?

    Absolutely a great stop for anyone looking to see what an old shop looks like. This place is frozen in time…. Before flashy t shirt tourist traps came around. There are plenty of antique bikes to marvel at and definitely alot of new old stock parts. Pickers can strike gold here. Like fine wine this place gets better with time.

    Nice looking Flat Track bike — is that one of John Hateley’s #98’s? In the 70’s Hateley was a professional racer, stuntman and one of the fastest riders in America. . .
