Bessie traveled through all of the lower 48 states during the ’30s and ’40s at a time when the country was rife with prejudice and hatred. She later rode in Europe, Brazil, and Haiti and during World War II she served as one of the few motorcycle despatch riders for the United States military.


Neat. So she's really not a poseur (tho I hope she did something about that low rear tire)...

Any info on the storage? I would love to have some room to put stuff other than a back-pack while riding my ex500. Even though this bike was a highly sold bike, there are not many options out there unless you make it yourself, and i do not have the tools or equipment to do that.

I made the racks out of some scrap I found and mounted Pelican 1430s to them. Just the right size for that little bike.
