This here is Bessie B Stringfield. She rode her Harley through the segregated south and when she was unable to find a place to sleep she'd just put her leather jacket on the bars and her feet on the rear fender. Her life is pretty interesting- more info here
and these ladies are Adeline and Augusta Van Buren. Read this -I'm horrible at relaying stories it's better that I just cut and paste the link for you to read.
Here's some cool old Indians for you to drool over.. I wonder how awkward these are to ride? I prob couldn't even lift one up. I had a hard time lifting my '69 Honda and that was only a cb175 HA! Plus it's been such a long time since i've ridden a real bike, the last time I rode a bike was Chris' mini pit bike. I just like old things-old cars, old bikes, old men (like 80) old houses, old--you get the point.
