There’s my fulfilled love for bicycle chic and then there’s my unfulfilled love for vintage motorcycles. A Triumph Speed Twin from the 1930s has long found itself on my ‘to buy’ list but is yet to find itself parked alongside my Audi. A vintage motorcycle, a shawl neck cardigan and long, open roads would all add up to a perfect experience, and one these gentlemen no doubt had. And while I shan’t be living out such an experience in the immediate future, I can still draw sartorial inspiration: this picture features on Fashionising.com at a time when biker fashion is returning to prominence as a trend for 2011.
You’ll find a close up photo after the jump.
This vintage picture comes to us from July 1915 and was snapped in Washington, D.C.;
“Motorcycle team, relay to Frisco.”
