Dang! I need to start wearing a dress on my bike.

Would enjoy reading the stories behind these photos – who the women were, when and where the photos were taken…

Yay! I'm so happy my photo was posted and gets to join the ranks of all the other awesome photos already up. I have really enjoyed looking at everyone's vintage photos and reading their stories. Great contest!

A woman's allure increases when they do things that are out of the ordinary. In the context of the time when these photos were taken, these women were complete rebels. Thank you for sharing.
Except the kickstand is down. Not so daring. Nor so powerful. Cut nonetheless.

Darn it, I had a photo of my mother on a bike but did not send it in.
March 31, 2010 at 11:45 pm
WOW! The fact that we don't know anything about these women only increases the allure.

I wish that photo was a little clearer, then I could ID that old motorcycle, just can't quite make it out..:-(
April 1, 2010 at 12:33 am
I wish you'd credit the owners of these photos. I would like to know more about who's sending them.

WHERE IS THE COOL?

Wonderful pictures. When feminity contrast with masculinity.. Like a girl with a man's Rolex.

Why people of past times (20th century but bevor we were born)seem to me more modern actual and present than my contemporarys?A motorcycle is a beautiful and sensual sculpture…"Je n'ai besoin de personne en Harley Davidson…"(Serge Gainsbourg)

Very cool, daring women…definitely not adhering to the typical mold of their time. INSPIRING.
April 1, 2010 at 6:12 am
Both of these photos look like the women are sitting on their boyfriend's motorbikes posing for a photo.Nothing wrong with that of course and they both look pretty cool. But if nothing is known of these women I wouldn't assume they were the owners of the bikes or that they could ride them.
April 1, 2010 at 6:56 am
Brilliant photos! Those were the days when you could ride around on such powerful machines without a helmet or other protective gear, looking chic and sassy…
April 1, 2010 at 8:43 am
I was inspired by all these photos and put the vintage one on my website http://melinda-robicheaux.blogspot.comThis is my Dad – the dancing guy looks like Jim Morrison. He is dancing with his partner during their modern0ballet rehearsal in 70's in Cracow (Poland).

Amazing! Great ladies and awesome rides!

This contest is such a great idea thx Scott..

Vintage Photos Are So Inspiring
April 1, 2010 at 11:06 am
Just the prospect that in those days women could be so feminine yet daring is so intriguing…
April 1, 2010 at 12:06 pm
So what if the kickstand is down? So what if the bikes are their boyfriends'? The womens' spirit, attitude, and style come through pictures loud and clear. What they embody is not dependent on wether they're actually riding at that moment or not, and I think it's an honest embodiment of who they are : interesting and beautiful women I'm priviliged to glimpse at through this blog and for which I'm grateful to the Sartorialist and his readers.
April 1, 2010 at 12:44 pm
These are great photos….however, as I am a woman who loves fashion and has a vintage motorcycle myself, I must point out that neither of these woman are actually riding the motorcycles (note the kickstand in the second photo). These girls are pretty and cute sitting on the bikes, but there are strong, stylish, sexy women out there that actually ride bikes. Lets see some pics of them!
April 1, 2010 at 9:27 pm
The bike in the first picture is uber rad. Anyone know what it is? Thanks
April 1, 2010 at 9:36 pm
The woman in the first picture looks a lot like Brandise from Project Runway and Models of the Runway! I absolutely love all these old photos, great idea Scott!
April 1, 2010 at 10:36 pm
Love old pictures and how people used to overdressed back in time…
April 2, 2010 at 5:45 am
Superbe!!J'adore. Love this much, so fierce & stylish at the same time. Avant la lettre :-)
April 2, 2010 at 2:05 pm
the hair IS fabulous. i've done the same with hairdressers..bringing in old photos from 20's flappers to get the same look and feel.
April 4, 2010 at 8:08 am
it amazes me that after all these years bikes are still considered cool and rebelious, perhaps it's the imminent threat of death while riding.

great shots! just because a lady's posed on a bike doesn't mean she doesn't also ride. check out these ladies who've got rad style and the proverbial balls to match:
