Fuel Cleveland Photos 2015

Photo by: Jay Cagney
Fuel Cleveland has gone and passed, but if you are like me, you want to go back and drink it all in just a little more. I tried to put together a solid amount of photos from the show that I took along with adding some photos from other photographers that were at the show. The coolest part about inviting so many of the best motorcycle photographers in the country is seeing their outlook on how the show happened through their eyes. The content being shot is the same, but nothing is truly ever seen the same way. I think that's what I love the most about photography so much. I believe you will really see what I am saying pretty clearly here, enjoy!

Jeremy Cupp's company is called LC Fabrications. LC stands for his wife's initials a tradition he kept in the family after his father named his company also with the initials of his wife, Jeremy's mom.


Jeremy's innovative build had heads turning and every camera pointed at it all day

Keino Sasaki is a legend and true innovator when it comes to building 2 wheeled machines. A real honor to have one of his bikes on display and to meet him in person.

I think Jim Kavelec's BMW arsenal was in full effect at Fuel! It was so cool to see so many of these classic BMW in one place.

Lowside Syndicate was gracious enough to bring this amazing Shovelhead built by Kyle Meure and owned by Tyler Pedersen who couldn't make it to the show because he is overseas protecting our freedom. Thank you Tyler for everything you do for us back here in the states, and come home safe.
Outside had some pretty awesome bikes that came out as well.

American Werewolves at the Fuel Cleveland after party.



No lights, no coverage from the potential rain, playing under a bridge in the dark with only 2 microphones on a last minute PA find, and they still played at 120%. American Werewolves is absolutely incredible live and if they are playing to thousands of people or just 20, I promise you they will never disappoint! Thanks again guys for dealing with the craziness of the whole night and just killing it! 

For more great photos of Fuel Cleveland, you can check out Street Chopper's coverage along with Josh Kurpius's photos on his website as well.

Thanks for taking some time out of your day to take a look at all the fun from Fuel Cleveland 2015. We should have a video released in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for that and we are excited to say we are already working on Fuel Cleveland 2016! See you next year and thank you again for all the love and support each and everyone of you have shown, the response has been so amazing and this show wouldn't be anything without you!

Cheers!
