Thread: Billy Lane 1928 speedway peashooter

  1. Re: Billy Lane 1928 speedway peashooter

    I believe that Billy Lane is the founder/organizer of the "Sons of Speed" races held at New Smyrna speedway in Fla. during bike week. If I'm not mistaken he also builds most if not all of the competing machines.I'm sure Buzz could shed more light on this since he has participated in that event.

    This is my bike, and all information is correct. Still for sale too

    Brook you have a great bike for sale and good to hear first hand from the owner that its the real deal (built by Billy Lane of Chopper INC)
    this is along the lines of what i would like to build after the 1926 A side valve project i have is finished

    i did do some research, plus found this pic of it in front of Billy's 1935 ford truck on socimage under BILLY LANE/CHOPPERS INC
    which confirmed it was indeed owned and built by Billy

    Brook was this a bike that Billy built to race for himself or was it something that you had him build for you?
    and have you had a chance to race it or get it out on a track to open it up?
    any chance of posting any footage/vids of it running

    good luck with the sale

    Not smart. Fricken guy killed someone because he was STUPID and chose to get behind the wheel and killed someone. Yes, he did his 6 years, but another person is DEAD, and ain't comin' back. I don't care if he's talented... Or on TV.

    I think he had a 15 year old girl with him in that crash. The bike shown sold on eBay oz. Yet the seller says it's still for sale. I guess his buyer backed out.
