Not vintage photos, but here's UK politician Hazel Blears on a Thruxton

And Sarah Palin (almost) on a Harley

Much better:
Marianne Faithfull in the film "Girl On A Motorcycle"

And a random girl on a Triumph

This photo from the New York Times ("The Hells Angels in 1973") reminds me of babysitters I had in the '60s. Kind of scary, kind of sexy.

Did you say vintage women on bikes or the other way around?

It is probably the ladies in bigskynyc's post , just 60 years later!

As Sal mentioned, Anke-Eve is quite interesting. She is post 1950 though worthy of a look see!

There's a book on sale at Amazon called "The American Motorcycle Girls - 1900-1950" which your girlfriend may be interested in.

I have alweays liked this

Infact I have thought of printing it out smallish and sticking it in my key fob.

I'd also be interested in a book on war time dispatch riders - women and all, if there was any
