It might not surprise anybody if a chemical analysis of Terry Vance’s blood revealed a small mixture of gas and oil. Born in 1953, Vance moved to Los Angeles with his family at the age of 3. A decade later he used paper route money and bought a mini-bike frame. His dad installed a small engine from a lawn edger and a racer was born.
Vance graduated from his father’s ingenuity to a Honda 90, then a Honda 350 and in 1970 a Honda 750 Fours. As a teen, Vance raced his Honda in local drag strip races and not surprisingly, won. In 1972, Hines signed his first professional contract with R.C. Engineering and while there he met a man named Byron Hines who was building Vance’s race bikes. The rest, shall we say, is history.
Vance and Hines
Vance and Hines became best friends and the stars of motorcycle drag racing. In 1977, Suzuki signed Vance and with Hines tuning their award winning ways continued. In January 1980 Vance & Hines, the company, was born. Initially, Vance and Hines built customer motors but by 1983 the now famous Vance & Hines exhaust system emerged. The duo built exhaust systems not only for drag racing but also for road bikes and Vance’s winning ways fueled the company’s popular success.
Vance retired in 1988 winning the final five events he entered. Considered the most successful motorcycle drag racer of his era, Vance is credited with 24 NHRA national victories.
