A contractor told me his son used to call motorcycles psychomomo’s – works with this poster…

The stark black and white film images held against the red backdrop is stunning: the leading actors names in red too achieves a balanced page. It’s like a pure screen printed race poster for the weekly dirt oval meetings.

Here’s the full blown cinema poster or lobby card.

Thunderbirds are Go! x3

A stunning image of three styalized Thunderbirds at blurry speed. Great airbrush work expressing the clean bodywork and lined Triumph badge of one of the finest 650’s from Meriden.

And the signifigance of 3x90x500? The 6T Thunderbird was launched publicly at Montlhéry near Paris where three standard production bikes were ridden around a circuit by a team of riders who between them averaged a speed of 92 mph (148 km/h) over a distance of 500 miles (800 km). All three machines were ridden to the circuit and back to the Meriden factory.
