Throwback Thursday : Vintage photos of throttle twisting pop icons


Sometimes, nothing beats the feeling of getting out on the open road and letting the breeze take your weekday blues away. Take a hint from these vintage icons on their motorcycles!

Taking little cue in handling the throttle, these stars let it rip and rev their way to the dusty road. These vintage photos reveal the more adrenaline pumped side of life during the day. They just let their hair down, the throttle loose and the tires burning!

Included in this series of photos are the one and only King, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Clark Gable, James Dean, Francoise Hardy, Robert Redford and Lauren Hutton, the King of Cool Steve McQueen and Paul Newman.

These photos just kinda make you wanna go grab those handle bars and zoom away, leaving your worries behind. Of course, bring your favourite Lomography camera to show all the other peeps the way it’s done!
