CBG contributor: Caylee Hankins

Classic Bike Guide contributor, Caylee Hankins, tragically lost her fight with cancer on October 31, 2020.

There wasn’t much this talented young lady couldn’t do; I met her racing dirt track on a Harley-Davidson in Croatia, but she was also a professional photographer, gifted writer and film producer.

There are few that can ride and shoot as well as Caylee could.


I only met Caylee a few times, but it was her personality that was so addictive and made her shine.

Without trying, without wearing the right clothes, she seemed always to be the coolest person around.

A regular competitor in the Dirt Track Association (DTRA) in the UK, Caylee had been riding for just a few years and had already ridden around Vietnam and more recently Morocco, both times carrying photographic gear as well.


She covered Wheels and Waves, the retro, custom festival in France once; the details of the bikes were correct, the words and photography captured the festival superbly. I’m sure if there was a chance, she would have competed, too.

Rarely do you meet such bright stars in life – ride on, Caylee.
