Pen and Ink Drawings, from "MotorCycle" and "Motorcycling".....I'm back on these, they fascinate me......

I've run pen and ink drawings from "MotorCycle", "MotorCycling" and other sources over several previous blogs....see Motorcycle pen and ink images in the subject listings off to the RHS of the blog.
I admire the skill of the artists.....
I keep a folder titled "Fillin Drawings" in my Aust. VOC magazine, FTDU, file......
Lets have a look at some for this blog....
No particular theme or order.....
Again, credit to Morton's MotorCycle Media in the UK for their use....

Hi Dennis. That cable repair trick was a new one for me. I'll try to remember it whilst rallying the Velocettes.
