Christine puts it like this. Christine Vaughan It was out of necessity that Christine learned to work on motorcycles. One of the first things Christine did with her first bike was to take it apart. When she asked her Father and brothers to help her put it back together. They told her, "you took it apart you can put it back together". It has been a learning experience for her ever since. A high school graduate and almost two years of collage but with no degree behind her, Christine has never been good at learning by watching or listening.

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.

Cela signifie-t-il qu'il n'y pas une femme assez calée pour se mesurer à eux ? Ou bien tout simplement n'y a-t-il aucune femme exerçant dans ce domaine ? J'ai fait ma petite enquête, et j'en ai au moins trouvé une : Christine Vaughn. Dingue de moto depuis l'âge de 10 ans, elle a commencé à s'intéresser à la mécanique très tôt, démontant et remontant entièrement des motos toute seule. Elle a fait beaucoup de tentatives, des erreurs et, par conséquent, a énormément appris. Bien qu'elle n'ait obtenu aucun diplôme en design, qu'elle ne sache même pas utiliser la CAO (Conception Assistée par Ordinateur) et qu'elle n'ait pas suivi de formation spécifique relative à la mécanique ou la fabrication, sa passion a été la plus forte et l'a conduite à créer Wicked Women Choppers à Herrin (Illinois, USA). Elle est ainsi devenue la première (et la seule ?) femme à designer et fabriquer des motos, sous son propre label, dans le pays. Christine Vaughn a très vite compris que la plupart des motos sont faites pour répondre aux besoins des hommes de taille moyenne.
