BILLY LANE’S, SONS OF SPEED, DAYTONA BIKEWEEK 2020

Post & Images by Jack McIntyre

Best explained by this, Sons of Speed, created by Billy Lane of Choppers Inc, is a motorcycle race inspired by early 20th-century board-track racing. Open to the public, races occur regularly at Daytona Bike Week, Biketoberfest and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

I’ve shot several Sons of Speed events from Daytona to Sturgis. The images are in the appropriate galleries by destination. CLICK HERE for this past race during Daytona Bikeweek 2020.

Great time at Arlen Fatland’s 50th anniversary party, Daytona Bikeweek 2020

Post & Images by Jack McIntyre in behalf of Iron Trader News

We all just attended Arlen Fatland’s 50th anniversary party at what is now Billy Lane’s home for Choppers Inc on Main Street in Daytona with Rod Woodruff, Jack & Lynn Deagazio, Toni Woodruff, Marilyn Stemp, Jeff Zielinski, Cory Ness, Christine LePera, john marcella, Jody Perewitz, Zach Ness, Dave Perewitz, Timothy Remus, Billy Lane, Erin Lane, and many more. I wanted to share all of these images because it was a gathering of some of the industries most wonderful people. I spoke with Billy Lane & his wife Erin for a while over a few days time regarding the shop being purchased from Arlen, and it’s future. I will keep tabs with Billy on this project so that I don’t report incorrect news, but the idea is to make it a cool lounge more or less, highlighting future builders while honoring the past, so with that said, I will sit back and await the shops future & in October, I will do another shoot there & show you how Billy & Erin’s goal has moved forward.

ALLSTATE HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE, GOOD EXPERIENCE / BAD???

Post by Jack McIntyre

I know that this isn’t very “motorcycle industry” related, however we all have insurance, and I wanted to share our recent experience.

We have been a customer of ALLSTATE for the last 33 years. Insuring our very first apartment then moving on to our past & present homes. We recently had an issue with water coming in from our fire wall (about 7 months ago). We thought, being its a city row home with a joined fire wall, it was simply humidity building, so we had the walls & ceiling stripped and repaired at our cost. Well many months later it started again so this time we brought in a roofer to take a look. He advised us that he found several problems on the roof, all wind related damage. He said typically he would just give the homeowner an estimate, and do the repairs. In this case, he told us to contact ALLSTATE, because the wind damage was extensive and the roof needed to be replaced. Continue reading ALLSTATE HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE, GOOD EXPERIENCE / BAD???
