Bike pin-ups

Stumbled upon these images on the excellent ArtBiker site. They are the work of a US artist called David Uhl - really evocative of a golden age of motorcycling; combining old-school bikes with the airbrushed pin-up girls of Alberto Vargas.

If I ever fulfill my fantasy of living like Steve McQueen in an old aircraft hanger full of stripped pine and moto-memorabilia then I would definitely want this artwork on the walls.

ART?!?

Of course ART - it's not all about Gainsboroughs and Titians you know.

I particularly like the ones cleaning/mending bikes wearing impossibly high heels. Obviously art imitating life . . .
