Vintage Icon: Motorcycle Rebel Lillian La France

via the Selvage Yard





“It was the thrill of risking my life that made me to take to drome riding.  I was the girl who flirts with death.  From childhood I was inspired by wanderlust.  I was always alone, dreaming of adventures– how to ride a pony out West, to follow my calling to fame.  This was my secret.   I shared it with no one.” - Lillian La France


Lillian La France was one of the first, and also one of the most popular, female Wall of Death motorcycle stunt riders of the 1920s & ’30s. You can read more about her HERE. Enjoy!
