With the debatable exception of Marilyn Monroe, no other actress from Hollywood’s Golden Age had such a lasting hold on the people’s imagination than the violet-eyed siren Elizabeth Taylor.
Did you know that style icon Elizabeth Taylor loved riding motorcycles and even owned a Harley? Here she attended a motorcycle rally in New Jersey back in 1987.
Along with being a key figure in Rock and Roll, the world's most recognizable entertainer, an actor, and the man who put peanut butter and banana sandwiches on the map, Elvis was a huge gearhead, so naturally, he loved motorcycles and had a pretty impressive personal collection.
Here he is on the set of "Clambake" in 1976, riding a classic Harley Davidson. His preference was always for a Harley FLH touring bike, but he also dabbled in Triumphs, Hondas, and even 70s-era VW-powered trikes over the years.
A maestro in the style of Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix, Lenny Kravitz became one of the modern era's great rock stars on the power of his supreme talent, with a touch of vintage-yet-modern, new-Bohemian ethos.
Here we have lovely Lenny as he gets his picture taken on a motorcycle in 1996; he looks effortlessly chic; only Lenny can make orange look so good.
Dan Aykroyd once said in an interview, "My Harley-Davidson is a form of therapy. You get on that, and you don’t need a shrink. When you’re on the bike, all you’re doing is concentrating on staying alive. You get into the rhythm of the road, and it’s quite zen."
Here we see Dan going for a therapeutic ride in 1988 on his cruiser motorcycle. Is it just me, or do celebrities not like to wear helmets?
Sammy Davis Jr.
Sammy Davis Jr. is widely regarded as one of the greatest showmen of the 20th century; being the entertainment legend that he is, his career quite literally spanned a lifetime.
Here we have a photograph of Sammy Davis Jr. in 1970 as he arrives at an event in a snakeskin suit, with his old faithful right behind him.
