More pen and ink from the Motorcycle Media...

Time for another ......
As I mentioned in an earlier foray into pen and ink drawings from the motorcycle media, graphic art has changed dramatically-- …. lets have another look into 1931 and 1933 when graphic artists, cartoonists and the like, armed with pen, ink and pencil recorded the images of the day in concert with the film camera.Acknowledgement is made to Mortons Motorcycle Media owners of the copyright for "The Motorcycle" and "MotorCycling" and to the families of the artists for use of the images.

THE JOY OF IT ink drawing sums most of vintage motorcycling up for me - springer front just an inch or two in the air, coming over the rise of a hill. How good that feels, and the engine pulling at full revs! That's real vintage motorcycling.
