Man, some guys can really talk a whole lot of shit, can't he? I mean it's one thing to be candid and say what one means on this forum but saying uncool especially untrue things about another rider isn't very cool. Sound like Odessa has lots of issue with Billy Lane. If you ain't got nothing good to say, keep your ignorant comments to yourself. Talking trash is not going to impress the girl either.
Just got to put in my two cents.

After listening to the audio Billy sounded like he designed the hubless wheel system (with/because of his engineering backround) ?

I was under the impression that:

Designed the hubless wheel?

I don't think he said anything about designing the hubless wheel. He designed the bike that has a hubless wheel system and he said that it was difficult and if you weren't careful you could get hurt. One might get the impression about a lot of things, like Odessa who had thought Billy Lane was uneducated because of his freaking hair.

Most likely He worked with the Designers and adapted it to the Motorcycle.

I'd say the Flinstones Designed the Wide tire Look

Please don't tell me you consider the Teutels among the "best fabricators". Are we talking choppers or hand rails here?? I'm just asking.

hey....good thread. couple things i'd like to ask / say. it seems from what i've read in this thread (i haven't read 'em all) that the pricing of these high end choppers has been inflated by the percieved popularity of custom vehicles these days. would you say this is true? and are you saying that if i was in the market (in my heart maybe..in my wallet? well it's a little dusty in there) for one of these units and have the necessary skills to "asemble" one that i could come away with something comparable to billy's or wcc stuff (in a layman's eye's)at a third the price?

oh..and as far as the hair..haha. i work on a railroad during the summer (7 years next season). had hair down to my ass when i started...lot's of rednecks and hard drinkin' natives on the railroad. the hair was trouble..i shaved it off, left a goat, and poof! now i'm shop steward and running equipment on the surfacing crew. people really stuck me in a slot when they first saw me with that mop..kinda like mikey on occ only skinnier. so now my hair is 1/4 " long, i don't have to dick with it all the time, doesn't pick up grease and stuff when i'm under the machines..and i don't have to work twice as hard proving i'm not some kinda burnt out hippie. trouble is it's still long on the inside so i still come up with some hairbrained ideas at times. haha..imagine me working for you?

geez..a little more than i meant to say

later

oh..and if i was to build / buy it would be something along the lines of wcc's cfl's. i like that geometry..seems like they're meant to ride.

Well I have hair too my azz ... several degrees ... and was retired from HAVING to do anything ... (although I now just make money at what I like doing) ... before 21.

Kinda shoots the whole long hair and enjoy dispair theory to hell huh ... your brain power, creativity, and clever business ideas have NOTHING to do with looks.

The scum bags at Enron all had quaffed hair, fake smiles, and starched suits ... and look where they took hard working people!

Paul Yaffe - made snide Comments and lost the contest

same for Dave Pierwitz and that Simms dude!

Billy and Larry made me Proud to be an individual.

wow...before 21! that'd be pretty cool alright. me, looks like i'll be at it 'till it hurts too much to keep at it the way things are pointing.

where you stand depends on where you sit i guess..both my winter and summer jobs require me to spend lots of time up to my elbows in grease and oil. i'm pretty sure long hair doesn't necessarily define your individuality, i think it starts when you take your first breath.

but about the bikes..

I have enjoyed the true uniquness of billy's bikes. Some other names being thrown around really don't do much more than assemble custom ordered pieces.

Re: billy lane

I actually know of a great web site that you can visit for Billy Lane pics it is WWW.EASYRIDING.NET
I actually talk to Billy Lane all the time and he is a great guy. I just met him while he was in Dallas while he had a lay over and he is very polite. And, I think his hair rocks! I didn't think I would like the whole dread lock thing but it fits him well. Beyond all of that you have to give him credit he builds some pretty awesome choppers. For a guy that is that young to be able to take from the old style and incorporate it with the new rocks in my book. I love the Pan Head's and Shovel Head's and he is doing an awesome job. Not to mention he is good looking. I'd still ride his bike first though!

I know Billy also, we do some projects together, He is a great guy, and one hell of a craftsman. He has made a great name for himself both personally and professionaly in the industry. I was on the DC deal with Paul Yaffe (we did his wheels), and he's a good guy too, just a bit of a smartass by nature.
