With bike, truck, jeep & classic car shows and free concerts on two stages, this year’s Lone Star Rally will be jam packed with entertainment for all ages, day and night, all weekend long, November 3-6, 2016. Known as the largest weekend rally in the country, this Texas size party is truly for those who live life wide open and ride hard. Bands will perform throughout the weekend at Saengerfest Park and at Beach Central Park. Rally goers can also shop ’til they drop at hundreds of vendors offering everything from motorcycle accessories and state-of-the-art after market parts to custom crafted jewelry and hand-tooled leather hats and other accessories throughout downtown Galveston and along the Seawall. Plus, they can check out the coolest new rides on two wheels and four, with legendary bike builders from across the nation showcasing their best in custom paint and design.
“We come down here every year, I don’t think I’ve missed a year yet,” biker Larry Fuller says. This year he is showing off his favorite Harley Davidson. “It’s my second wife,” he laughs.
Hundreds of thousands of riders will cross the causeway to Galveston Island for four days of non-stop entertainment. A large part of what makes the Lone Star Rally so unique is its setting. Rally goers take in some of them most spectacular waterfront riding available along the Gulf, coupled with the picturesque architecture and bike-only accessibility of Historic Downtown Galveston. The Island’s many delicious restaurants and unique boutiques also help to place the Lone Star Rally among the best-loved destination rallies in the country.
This year won’t be American Hat Maker’s first time visiting Lone Star Rally.

This year our booth is going to be located on the corner of 21st & Strand St! We’re super excited to announce that this year we are sponsoring the amazing Jody Perewitz and are even more excited to get her some of our hats!
Jody Perewitz has been around motorcycles all her life and has become very well-known throughout the motorcycle community for her knowledge of bikes and record-setting driving skills. Manager of Marketing for the nationally renowned Perewitz Cycle Fabrication of Halifax, MA, makers of award-winning customs, she’s also the fastest woman on an American V-Twin: She currently holds 8 Land Speed Records, one of which is a World Record.

She literally propelled herself into the record books by being the fastest woman to ever ride an American V-Twin powered motorcyle over 200 mph!
Her machine, 264, is powered by a 100ci V-Twin boasting a super strong Jim’s bottom end, helping the supercharged power plant produce over 230 hp’s!
