Vintage trophy girls - 03/05/13 4:44 pm

Hot late summer of '79, we're sitting in the downhill side stands of Sidewinders race track in Portland Oregon, keeping our hands over the paper cups of Oly beer to keep the dirt out, when the announcer blared out over the loud speakers, mounted on the light poles that they were looking for a Trophy girl for the up coming trophy dash. Me and my buddies who rode there on Triumph's, BSA's, and Norton's, were egging on my date who happened to be wearing her tight jeans, cowgirl shirt, unbuttoned seductively, and cowgirl hat, that she needed to get her ass up to the tower to show her stuff. I accompanied her to the tower door as the announcer dismissed all the other teeny bobbers and said he founnd his girl.





Thirty years later, still MY trophy girl and my wife. This year will be our 36th together.

Don't know who this is but she's obviously "Vintage English". Shot it at Turtle Island outside of Mobile, AL a few years ago. I remember someone saying she was a "Trophy Girl". So here she is...

Did you mean Dauphin Island? I'd bet that's a U of A girl. They have a mating call! It goes" I'm so druuuuuuuuuunk!"
Posted By: billysguitars

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 03/06/13 7:55 pm

Randy,

you're absolutely correct. It was Dauphin Island. I just drove over for the day from Gulfport , MS, where I was rebuilding one of the beach houses after Katrina.

Met a handful of folks from around the area but never made it back over to hang out and talk bikes. (Too busy chasing the almighty dollar. Sad, but true. I did carry around a bike to work on in the back of my truck - folks get iritated when you drag a bike project into a motel room or a rent house without permission)

Billy

Hey, be careful Ger, I can hear it already... "Daddy, can I use the Beezer tonight ? Don't worry Daddy, I never do that jukebox thing and I've never gone over 120 km/hr on your bike anyway !
She's a cutie !

Hawaiian Tiger lad, I think it's a tobacco pouch..? Scroll up the page a tad, and you'll see a couple of girls with it all on show, and you can plainly see their Baccie pouch. Don't know where they keep the papers..? Perhaps they've just set the points on the bike, and then had a smoke.. laughing

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 04/11/13 6:36 pm

Looking at old Betty and Annette makes me recall how I got back into Brit Bikes some 12-15 years ago. I accidently ran into a guy who'd had a bike shop out in the country while looking for a new shop for myself. While checking out the closed building the owner just happened to be there and he let me in.

What I found myself looking at was maybe 120 bikes. One room had the British stuff. Mentioned he was having an auction soon and I of course offered to buy the Brit stuff before then. What happened was that for $1500 paid out over a month I got two BSA's and 6 or 7 Triumphs and alot of parts in boxes and hanging on the walls. I never knew why he let it go that cheap but the auction came and went and it wasn't even advertised in the local papers. Alot of my buddies got a bunch of Jap and other stuff dirt cheap. A few years passed and in running down what I thought was a 68 Bonny ( ended up being a trashed 70 but...)from a friend of his I found out where they had all come from. And here's where Betty and Annette come in.

The shop guy had passed away by this time but his wife was still around. Sort of a skinny wiry type. So the friend tells me that years ago she had been a topless dancer in clubs around the area. Had got breast augmentations and they had gone bad ! A suit against the company won a large settlement which they spent on motorcycles and shall we say..recreational pharmacutical products. They never really ran a very tight business and when I happened by they were liquidating to afford more drugs. So bless Betty and Annette cause I'm thinking theirs were real !

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 04/18/13 5:32 pm

Not to compare with some of the above beauties, but here are a few curiosities.
My friend gave me this poster years ago and told me it was a proof (I think) for the cover of the magazine. From my shop wall:


If I remember right March 1968 Cycle World Montessa ad. Contessa di Montessa? Soon to be on my shop wall.


NGK spark plug catalog inner cover. Upper is USA catalog. Lower is the UK catalog (which is much more informative if you need spark plug info). The UK photo has a bad attempt to change the flag on the 4th girl from left. It was a Japanese flag, now Espana. But I like that the Union Jack is out front!

The sexiest MM photo I've seen was in 1952 of her sretched fully nude on a zebra skin for a calendar shoot. Of course, she was not well known at that time as her movie career had not yet launched. Some things just stick in my mind. Cheers, Don.

Really, the wholesome image of trophy girls and motorcycles is part of what this forum is about; the borderline smut having nothing to do with bikes or racing I believe is out of place here.

I'm as red-blooded as the next guy, but really, a nekkid female with a snake?

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 06/06/13 1:38 pm

Hey, what happens in the "pub" stays in the pub. No one's sayin' ya haffta come in...


Tho I must admit... even ADVrider (where a LOT of stuff happens that would never fly elsewhere) has a ban on nakedness. Post a pic of breasts and you'll get banned pretty much right away. At least that's the stated policy.

BTW- I posted another pic from the shoot of Milla J on that Triumph over on my Tumblr blog pages- it got LOTS of hits.

I'd have to agree with Alan. Not even holding the handlebar, looks like she'd WAY much like to be ANYWHERE else...
Her expression looks too much like the annoying thing, it so quickly made me think of it;

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 10/01/14 12:09 pm

Statement I found on line:

Lord Patrick Lichfield
Here’s another life worth envying. Official photographer to the Royals (he shot the Charles/Di wedding portraits) the handsome ex-Harrovian and Grenadier Guardsman’s swinging Sixties lifestyle had most red-blooded males green with envy: Stately pile and Mustique holiday home, 17-year gig as snapper for the saucy Unipart calendar, friend of The Stones, one-time squeeze Britt Ekland and, oh, genuine bike nut. He died 2005 aged 66 but even at 59 said: “As you get older you have to give some things up – but I still ride my bike…”

A quickie internet search turned up THIS information on THAT bike:

"This immortal 1973 album, its cover image snapped at the infamous Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, was released three years after Joplin’s death and cemented her status as Rock’s First Lady. This Sportster chop she’s sitting on reportedly belonged to either Big Brother or one of his Holding Company. Pearl performed and partied as hard as any of the guys in the male-dominated world of hard rock, and as a result she became an unlikely icon for the burgeoning women’s rights movement. Whether Janis was the proverbial “reluctant” icon is open for debate – although everyone knows the fate that awaits rock’s reluctant icons, and that same fate definitely befell Janis Joplin. There’s no indication of Janis ever being a motorcyclist herself, although images show her riding on the back of bikes and reports have her in at least two crashes, in 1964 and in 1970."

This is from the linked blog page, an article entitled
"Top 10 Album Covers Featuring Motorcycles"

http://blog.motorcycle.com/2013/04/09/funnies/top-10-album-covers-featuring-motorcycles

Which is, in my mind -considering some of the album photo choices - rather dubious...
The article did however, include THIS:





Description: The phrase "va va voom" wasn't necessarily invented by or around Ms Bardot... But she certainly exemplifies it! Va Va Voom, she has!

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 01/30/15 2:42 pm

I have to disagree with that article. The top triple tree clearly looks like Triumph to me and that gauge looks like a Smith's.

Also, I have had enough and seen enough Hap Jones/ Wassell peanut tanks to feel confident that is also what is on that bike. Controls and throttle look British as well.

Could it be a Sportster ? Could be but I put my money on it being a Triumph.

This is from the linked blog page, an article entitled
"Top 10 Album Covers Featuring Motorcycles"


Which is, in my mind -considering some of the album photo choices - rather dubious...
The article did however, include THIS:

I agree Jon
You can't trust a journalist to know anything about motorcycles
it is a Sportster type of tank, but back in the day this was a common mod
Look at the levers and throttle, British
the handlebars are 7/8" not 1"
as you said Smiths gauge, which would NOT work on an HD drive

I think it is a Triumph OR BSA

My conclusion at this point, according to MY taste and no one else's ...

1) Motorcycling is serious business. Pictures of women posed on motorcycles who aren't actually riding the motorcycle or serious about it are not interesting, regardless of their physical attributes or state of dress/undress.

2) Women on motorcycles who are actually riding them and dressed in the proper gear are ALWAYS very attractive .....

OK Lannis wants the genuine article

Take a look at this video

http://pigsarms.com.au/2014/02/19/sybil-lupp-1916-1994/

Around 7 min 30 sec you will see her in her younger days.

Sybil Lupp's first E type Jaguar was a special order from the Jaguar factory.
It was originally specified with a D type racing cam, special carburettors and air cleaners to provide top performance.
Sybil Lupp was recorded at Ardmore airport in 1964 at a speed of 174 MPH in this very same car.

She was regarded as the top NZ Jaguar mechanic for years - especially on multi carb engines.

Although rather than looking at some 'Bint' draping her arse over the bikes, I was more interested in the BIKES.. shocked

Still can't understand why they have these women at the motor shows, they're bored shyteless, until a professional photographer comes along, then the money they get seems to motivate them into action.. crazy

Not a trophy girl but certainly glamorous.
There was a series of these ads in late 70's UK "Bike" mag.(anyone know were the others are hosted ?).I had the set on my bedroom wall.
After i had a 900 Darmah i sold it for the better looking "IMO" Drama SS. I also had a blond chick who looked very similar to the one in the ads. She was a keeper but being young & foolish i didn't realise that at the time.Being young, clad in leather & riding big loud bikes meant chicks were easy come & easy go.
Now i'm grey & older they're not around like they used to be...

This is Leroy Taylor with his second wife, Edna. Leroy owned Atlanta Motorcycle Sales and sold Triumphs through the entire 1960's and picked up Honda right when the Brit market fizzled out. AMS was the largest Brit dealer in the southeastern US, and where I picked up my skills. Photo is from the mid-to-late 50's, via GA Cracker's photo collection.

For a Southern Baptist town like Atlanta in the 50's, that was pretty risque apparel!

A quickie internet search turned up THIS information on THAT bike:

"This immortal 1973 album, its cover image snapped at the infamous Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, was released three years after Joplin�s death and cemented her status as Rock�s First Lady. This Sportster chop she�s sitting on reportedly belonged to either Big Brother or one of his Holding Company. Pearl performed and partied as hard as any of the guys in the male-dominated world of hard rock, and as a result she became an unlikely icon for the burgeoning women�s rights movement. Whether Janis was the proverbial �reluctant� icon is open for debate � although everyone knows the fate that awaits rock�s reluctant icons, and that same fate definitely befell Janis Joplin. There�s no indication of Janis ever being a motorcyclist herself, although images show her riding on the back of bikes and reports have her in at least two crashes, in 1964 and in 1970."

This is from the linked blog page, an article entitled
"Top 10 Album Covers Featuring Motorcycles"

http://blog.motorcycle.com/2013/04/09/funnies/top-10-album-covers-featuring-motorcycles

Which is, in my mind -considering some of the album photo choices - rather dubious...
The article did however, include THIS:

If I remember correctly, two 38 mile loops in the Red Mountain area is enough to beat the crap out of you and your bike.

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 06/01/15 3:11 pm

Whoo! That's a lot of pics to look through on a steam-powered computer ....

To be honest, the posed cheesecake photos don't do a thing for me. If I want them, I can find T&A pics by the million.

But the real girls on real bikes, especially the older ones; you don't find those everywhere, and it's sort of neat to imagine what sort of girl they might have been, had you lived in that time.

In 1986, I rode my Harley Electra-Glide to Laurel Maryland to see my great-aunt Nellie, who was bright as a button at age 88.

When she came out to meet me, she said "A Harley-Davidson! Do they STILL make those?" I was amazed.

In 1918, during WWI, Aunt Nellie was in nursing school at a hospital in Washington DC. It was Saturday night, and curfew was 10 PM - she had to be at the dorm at 10:00 or she would be kicked out of school. She had been at a party and was away across town at 9:45 - she'd never make it on a trolley car, so she was running across the Mall with no hope of making it, when a boy on a new Harley-Davidson ("It was red and gray and had a big seat in the back, really high up") asked her if she needed a ride somewhere. She said "Sure!" and hopped on, and he rode across the Mall and up and down some steps near the Capitol building and made it to the hospital with 5 minutes to spare ...

I'd give real money for a picture of THAT! No selfies, though, not even Brownie box cameras, I suppose ....

I got my copy from Amazon, and I've been spending a sticky hot day reading it and I'm halfway through.

Book review later, but I'll tell you right now that after reading this, I'll NEVER moan about how I don't feel like I'm ready for a trip somewhere. This girl hops on an old Bantam, loads it to the gills with camping gear, sets a 60 pound Airedale on the back, and takes off 14,000 miles through Canada, USA, and Mexico. Doesn't know a thing about working on it (but learns).

We who can't leave home without the proper riding gear and luggage and electronics and GPSs should be ashamed of ourselves .... I'm just amazed!

THAT is the prettiest, most graceful, most accomplished dancer ever to adorn the set of the best MGM musicals from the 30's and 40's - Eleanor Powell.

Her "nightclub" hula dance in taps in "Honolulu" is my favorite clip of all time .....

The Leather Boys is a "real film" with real actors and production values. Not like the later unbelievably bad "Angels" exploitation films that came out in 1960s and 70s.

Its theme was seen as distasteful by many at the time and it was X-rated (over 18 age), so young bike kid types couldn't get in to see it.

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 07/25/15 3:17 pm

Leather Boys is great for seeing what life was like in that period. Ace Cafe and holiday camps and social issues of the time. It must be one of the first films to touch on the issue of homosexuality ..... But that is not what the film is about . It just ends that way..... Unfortunately its such a shock at the end that it is what is remembered most about the movie. The rest of the movie is awesome regardless....

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 07/26/15 3:17 pm

Remaining off topic, I saw an old bloke walking down the street in London a couple of weeks ago. Thought to myself: "That must be Dudley Sutton!"

I resisted yelling "What about poor randy little Dot, you home-wrecker!"

I googled his picture and it came up with him wearing the same blue Mao Tse Tung-like jacket I saw him in.

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 10/30/15 7:31 pm

Some where on the interweb thingy raf940.... It may have been facebook or maybe tumblr. I grab photos all the time and dump them in a folder to look at someday. I dredge a few up and post them here without thinking too much about them, with the exception of trying not to offend 90% of you. wink

Lannis- the latest ladies' electric hair straighteners are pretty good at what they do.

Or even a bike moving slowly and a camera with slow shutter speed following its movement.

Incidentally the cars have SI(enna) number plates
Sienna, about 50 miles south of Florence, is well worth a visit, we like it:)

According to imcdb.org the motorcycle in "The Ambushers" was a '66 Bonneville, but in the movie poster it appears as a HD Sportster. And the rare 441 1/2 cc single cylinder model. Precursor to the Buell Blast.
I don't know if Matt Helm rode Triumphs in other movies. I saw one of the four Matt Helm movies in which he rode a Triumph for a short scene.

Re: Vintage trophy girls - 12/12/15 10:59 am

The Kawasaki roadracer in Wade's last post looks to be an A-1R production roadracer, ca. 1968, two-stoke twin, rotary valve, 5-speed.

Wade, thanks for posting. For the record, this is a picture of Dot Robinson.



I saw her at Daytona, late '60s, on the pink H-D.
