Next up we have a poster for my mechanic! (He's gonna love this and has no idea I'm making it.)
It will be a two color wood cut print. At this point I just want to get the over all feel of the design before I go in and pull out all the details of the figure and machine.
This is Honda's first 4 Stroke production motorcycle the Dream E-type. (1951) How cool is that? This is the great, great, great, great, grand father of all Honda 4 stroke machines. 11, 510 units made in 1951. The following year Honda received the Medal of Honor by the Japanese government for services rendered to the country with the presentation being made by the Emperor. Keeping my eyes peeled on E-bay for this puppy.
And this other page was inspired by a recent camping expedition to North South Lake in the Catskills. Enjoy!

The funny thing about this Volkswagen THING photo is that you don't see the giant hill the car just drove down. Apologies for the lack of comment dropping lately. I'm trying to ween my self off the morning ritual of blogging which has on neumerous occations lasted well into the afternoon. OK back to work.

Hailwood is perhaps best known for his accomplishments at the renowned Isle of Man TT. By 1967, he had won 12 times on the infamous island mountain course including three straight wins during the 1961 event, losing the fourth when his 350 AJS broke down with a broken gudgeon pin whilst leading. He won what many historians consider to be the most dramatic Isle of Man race of all time, the 1967 Senior TT against his great rival, Giacomo Agostini. In that race he set a lap record of 108.77 mph on the infamous Honda 500-4, that stood for the next 8 years.
Here is a link to see what the TT course looks like on board a TZ 250.
