Hall of Fame Notes

 
Lang Hindle started "Hindle Exhaust Systems" in the Canadian race scene many years ago. His career as a road racer began in 1969 competing on a 650BSA at Ontario's Mosport race track. The Rocket 3 BSA that Lang used was considered unlimited because he had built the frame, swing arm and, of course, the exhaust system. Hindle Exhaust Systems officially started in 1982 and todate have grown to enhance todays' motorcycle performance across every racing category --road, ATV, motocross, Supercross and drag!
