I did some research and found at least one: Christine Vaughn.A motorcycle enthusiast since the age of 10, she started being interested in mechanics pretty early, taking the motorcycles apart and putting them back together without any help.She made a lot of trials, mistakes and, consequently she learnt a lot.Although she doesn't own a degree in design, doesn't even know how to use a CAD (computer-automated design) program and have no formal mechanical nor fabrication training, her passion was stronger and led her to create Wicked Women Choppers in Herrin (IL/USA).It became the first (and only?) female-built, designed, and owned motorcycle manufacturer in the country.She understood that most motorcycles are built to accommodate the average-sized man, while creating and building bikes for her own, she realized that she always had to fabricate parts to make the bike comfortable and safe to ride for a woman rider.In this male-centric motorcycle industry, Wicked Women Choppers offers bikes designed specifically for the 51% of the population ignored by other manufacturers.For instance, the Shady Lady line of motorcycles is suited for the average-size woman, keeping in mind that the average woman in the US is about 5 feet, 5 inches tall ; the Shady Lady's drop-seat frame lowers the seating position while maintaining ground clearance and full-range function of the rear suspension.Because an estimated 15 percent of the American motorcycle-riding population is female and a larger percentage are passengers, Vaughn knows there is a market for her line of bikes.And the more surprising is that it's not only women who like the design work and styles created by Vaughn.Up to now it has been mainly men who contacted her.Do you want to know more about Christine Vaughn and her Wicked Women Choppers start-up?Click on the following link: WWC Picture taken on the Wicked Woman Chopper
Y a-t-il une raison ? Cela signifie-t-il qu'il n'y pas une femme assez calÃ©e pour se mesurer Ã eux ? Ou bien tout simplement n'y a-t-il aucune femme exerÃ§ant dans ce domaine ? J'ai fait ma petite enquÃªte, et j'en ai au moins trouvÃ© une : Christine Vaughn
.Dingue de moto depuis l'Ã¢ge de 10 ans, elle
a commencÃ© Ã s'intÃ©resser Ã la mÃ©canique trÃ¨s tÃ´t, dÃ©montant et remontant entiÃ¨rement des motos toute seule.Elle
a fait beaucoup de tentatives, des erreurs et, par consÃ©quent, a Ã©normÃ©ment appris.Bien qu'elle n'ait obtenu aucun diplÃ´me en design, qu'elle ne sache mÃªme pas utiliser la CAO (Conception AssistÃ©e par Ordinateur) et qu'elle n'ait pas suivi de formation spÃ©cifique relative Ã la mÃ©canique ou la fabrication, sa passion a Ã©tÃ© la plus forte et l'a conduite Ã crÃ©er Wicked Women Choppers
Ã Herrin (Illinois, USA).Elle est ainsi devenue la premiÃ¨re (et la seule ?) femme Ã designer et fabriquer des motos, sous son propre label, dans le pays.Christine Vaughn
a trÃ¨s vite compris que la plupart des motos sont faites pour rÃ©pondre aux besoins des hommes de taille moyenne.
