Mary Cummins, Hot Bike magazine, top 50 bikes
Back before Evolution engines, Love Rides, Harley Davidson Cafes and high-profile celebrities cruising the Sunset strip on their lowered Fat Boys, a very young Mary Cummins fell i love. It wasn't with a boy in her class or a high school football star; Mary fell in love with an Ironhead Sportster. Somehow, she ended up with a '73 Sporty and would ride wearing a full face helmet with a tinted face shield so no one could tell that she was only 14 years old. And while she was too young to get a drivers license and had to keep the bike hidden from her parents for fear they would freak out, for the first time she really felt like she was doing something for herself. Even though Hrleys weren't very "in" an Mary found herself ignoring her friends' disapproving comments on a daily basis, she kept riding her Ironehead up until her second or third year in college. That was about the time Cummins found herself so busy attending school, working and looking after her ailing grandmother that she could no longer find time to enjoy her bike so she sold it.
