A Few Posters From French Dealers

 

For the prices they sell these posters for you would think that they would get a decent camera and take some better photos…

1971 Honda CB350 Cafe Racer Project – Update

I haven’t forgotten about the poor old rolling chassy, once known as my Honda CB350…

I actually just picked up a 1972 Honda CL350 in good condition so that I can use it for parts. The problem is that I am now torn with the¬†possibility of restoring the new bike… Stay tuned for photos of the “parts bike” and progress on the CB Cafe Racer project.

The One Show

The One Show was everything we expected and then some. There were some great builds, some terrible builds, some vintage, some new-ish, some great surf rock, beer, food, swag… it was great!


Vintage Medical Charts From Ecuador

Recently we went to Ecuador to visit family and for the first time in 15 years found some vintage and antique stores. In all the visits past people always looked at us like we were crazy when we asked them if they knew of antique stores, but that is the subject of another long post coming soon. In the mean time I wanted to show off some amazing medical educational charts we found. I threw some of them up on our ETSY site if you want to pick a couple up for yourself.

Here We Go Again…

Missed another French poster for my collection. This one was from the 20’s for Griffon Motorcycles. It was a large poster and would have needed some restoration so I was only willing to go to $200. It went for $342 plus another $50 for shipping from France.

Bummer, Another One Bites The Dust!

The gap continues to broaden. Things that are rare or unusual keep getting more expensive, while the common stuff keeps going down in value. I can’t find the sweet spot these days on motorcycle posters. I missed another one…
