Custom Motorcyle Art

Submitted by on May 29, 2010

Take a look at this wonderful work by artist Gaston Vanzet from CustomMotorcycleArt.com.

Here is what Gaston has to say about  his art and how his passion was first ignited.

“It takes many weeks of careful study of angle, colour, light and atmosphere to bring the soul of the machine to life. The motor is the starting point for my illustrations, get this part right and the rest seems to follow.

Vintage and classic motorcycles are my favourites.  The working bits are there for all to see. As kids we rode worn out BSA Bantams, Kawasaki 100s, Jawas, Royal Enfields and Cossacks while we hankered for Norton Commandos and Honda CB750s.

It is a joy for to be able to illustrate and share my motorcycle dreams with the community of enthusiasts around the world.”

My personal favoutites are the bikes which  history regards as the best classic racers. Machines like the Norton Manx which would become the backbone of privateer racing in the 1960s. The Ducati 750SS which was ridden by Mike Hailwood and Jim Scraysbrook in the 1977 Castrol Six Hour and  the legendary Suzuki GSX 1000, which proved so potent in Superbike racing around the globe.

The artwork is priced at US$25 for an A4 print through to US$150 for an A1 version.
