Sons of Speed is an event that no others try to attempt. Sons of Speed is a motorcycle race inspired by early 20th-century board-track racing, featuring stripped-down bikes with pre-1925 American V-Twin engines. Numerous modifications are done to handlebars, exhaust, fenders, fuel and oil tanks & no brakes…

Inspired by Billy Lane this event continues to grow. It has different classes so that the motorcycles will be evenly matched by engine size. Check out the Sons of Speed Facebook page. No matter if it’s New Smyrna Beach, Florida, Tennessee, or Sturgis, attend this event. I can guarantee, this is something that you’ve never seen before. SEE THE FULL GALLERY HERE.

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.
