Vintage Motorcycle Ads

If this website was around in the 1960’s, we’d be featuring an army of beautiful women straddling motorbikes on just about every single page. The site would be filled to the brim with them. Before ‘political correctness’ was ever invented, the motorcycle industry loved to target males (sorry ladies) using some good old fashioned ‘sex sells’ tactics. They’d usually do it with headlines filled with sexual innuendo and many, MANY beautifully seductive women. Women that stared you in the eye and said “Purchase this fine motorbike and you will find yourself swimming in a ocean of pre-feminist, lose-moraled women in see-through clothing without any buttons.”

These are a collection of magazine ads from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s that pay homage to those golden days of advertising. Enjoy…
