The crew over at Benzina Magazine were kind enough to get excited about my motorcycle poster collecting and asked to feature a selection in their magazine. I sent them so many images that they had to break them up into 2 features. The first layout is debuting next month in issue 11 and concentrates on a few of the French posters I have in my collection. If they have room in issue 12 they will post examples of my American posters. Here is a sample of the upcoming layout:
The bad news is that the magazine is a British publication that is not readily available in the U.S. The good news is that you can order copies of the magazine and some great swag at their website. They concentrate on classic Italian bikes and their blog is quite interesting so check ’em out. Enjoy!

This past weekend was the annual Oregon Vintage Motorcyclists‘ Show & Swap Meet. As usual it was inspirational with some great bikes in all categories. The sun came out and it proved to be a beautiful day of vintage iron and oil!

This bad boy passed by on eBay today. I was watching it and knew it would go high. If it had been a little bigger I would have bid on it. It is a classic wool and leather work jacket produced by Montgomery Ward. Brilliant!
