when billy lane and indian larry were paired off on discovery channels biker
build off, he wouldn't let lane be disqualified for a non running bike so he
worked endlessly until they got the bike running. he seemed like a genuinely
cool guy. rip indian larry.
Man, Larry came up from the bottom..He had to have been having the time of
his life. It wasn't too long ago that Larry and his ilk were looked on as
trash by all but a small percentage of the biker world. I miss the old Iron
Horse World System. It was a hell of a last ride.
Greetings and Salutations....

Indeed...He was quite an artist. I thought that the
hand-twisted frame he made for the Biker Build-off was one of the
most attractive and innovative things I had seen for quite some time.
As another poster has mentioned, I felt that he showed a
great deal of class in the Biker Build-off when he refused to DQ
Billy Lane, and, instead turned his talents and energy towards
getting his competitor's bike running.
Even if he went out at the top of the current wave, his
talent and vision will be sorely missed. My condolances go out
to his family, and his friends.
I see, on his website, that memorials are directed to
a couple of very worthy charities. I would suggest that any
of us that feel the loss should make a donation in his name.
