The great Rollie Free is featured above. He set the land speed record (150.313 mph) at Bonneville in 1948 in his shower cap, speedo trunks and old style flip-flops on a specially-modified Vincent. This picture has been described as the world's most famous motorcycling picture, but many would argue that the picture of Steve McQueen (actually Bud Ekins) jumping the barbwire fence in The Great Escape is more famous. Either way, if you are a motorcylist, both pictures are the stuff legends are made of. You can catch more of my pictures and the histories behind them on our Legends of Motorcycling Page --some old, some new, some local and some far, far away.
At present, our site is under construction, so please bear (or is it bare) with us. Give us a call, and if I'm not doing burn-outs on a customer's bike or something fun like that, I'll help you in any way I can.
