Lilly Yokoi was an acrobat who specialised in performing on a golden bicycle. During her career, she toured around the world and appeared on the Ed Sullivan show three times.
Yokoi did some stunts that definitely seemed before-their-time. These tricks included:
- a no-hands handlebar spin
- a no-hands wheelie
- a handstand over the handlebars
Yokoi managed all of this in high-heeled shoes!
This video of Yokoi is bound to make you smile on a Monday morning, even if you don’t aspire to her level of skill on a bicycle!
