Niall says: Hi John, Here is Brighton Greyhound Stadium, which held speedway in the 1920's. This is a modern picture of the stadium.
I know very little about 1928 Brighton apart from reading that the stadium cost 40,000 to build back then and it was non other than Johnnie Hoskins whom ran it.
 

 
Has anyone any memorabilia from Brighton 1928? John
 

 
 
1928 Harley Peashooter
 
 
 
Many different makes of bikes were used in the early days.  The American Harley was winning races around the speedways in 1928 and the American machines may have been used at Brighton
