Vintage Motorcycle Posters

Morts thread got me thinking...
There are a lot of awesome old posters out there - Maybe I will just print some of my own (call it a perc.. I have access to some pretty good printers here at work )

In any case -
Thought it would be a good idea to post some I like.. Maybe even not all vintage - and others could do the same ..... I imagine there are a lot of classic posters (some of the old ones are works of art.. ) that many on here may not have seen - Especially some of the BMW posters... I think they defined Avant Gard (sp?)

Going to need to come up with a list of finalists and then try to find some high res images of them...

Some of the more simple ones, I'd bet you'd have really good luck with vectorizing them, then scaling them to your needs. There are even some freeware vectorizing softwares out there. I used a few when I was laser engraving guitar amp parts a while back.

the "automoto" print is awesome, but comes at a steep price. somewhere in the $50-$300 range from art.com depending on size.
