Heading up the stairs to the theatre room and office I framed up a nice copy of the Grand Prix MX from the Citadel in Namur Belgium by Roddy McCleod. He was kind enough to send me a large file of this iconic pic of the staircase.

I've got a lot of neat old school moto posters and riding gear from some of the past greats and legends of the sport I need to cough up the bucks and get framed up properly for display. The late, great Donny Schmit, world champ from Minnesota, his jersey, pants and radiator shrouds  from the early 90's.

That would be a 1980 ME125 waterpumper. Got three of them, they were my crack until I discovered that red one against the wall abandoned in a warehouse in California for the past 38 years. That would be one of maybe a dozen 1978 RC500's that the factory Honda race team produced for the 1978 500cc national championships and world MXGP's. Ex Jim Pomeroy bike. RIP Jim, the First American....

We could be good friends. Nice collection and shop.

Edit: the 125 works bike I want is a James Stewart era Kawasaki SR125.

Yeah, we have a thing or two in common...lol. I bought Kent Howerton's last works bike from him a few years back. Such a neat guy who still hauls ass on a dirt bike. His 1983 SR500 works Kawi. Needs a resto, but all there for the most part.



Billet linkage, hand welded swingarm, magnesium hubs, hand stamped and welded frame....


Works KYB forks carved from billet


Multi piece welded gull wing triple clamps, rubber mounted bars, hand formed alloy tank, knurled fork legs. All the trick shit us kids only dreamed about.



I also got  Kent's 1976 500cc National Championship winning Husky for a customers museum. Very neat bike with so many trick details and history. Was sitting in his garage untouched since winning the championship in 76.

No fish tank, but we had green shag carpet and about $2,000 worth of stereo components on shelves made of pine boards and mild crates.

I never researched that as I usually have a habit of doing but went to Michaels because of their frequency of 50% off frame sales. I keep posting ridiculous suggestions for art in this thread but honestly I'm with you on this and just having fun while seeing others good suggestions. Anyway, Michaels framed a 8 foot Pink Floyd poster of nude women and several of my 1948 Indian motorcycle, Pan Am flight and WW2 fighter plane black and white posters which were about 4 to 6 feet by 3 or 4 feet and only one later turned out to be dissapointing quality of work - the one with plastic rather than glass like the others. The glass is heavy so I took a chance on plastic for the Pink Floyd women's asses one due to it's size. If your retired DOD I'd recommend frame shop on post.

A supply sergeant gave me several huge weapons breakdown posters like the M-4 and 249 but my ex destroyed them during divorce to spite me plus took my 5 favorite long time stored liquor bottles and a rare art piece. Cops said community property when I called, since divorce not finalized at that point. photo hosting

What are some suggestions you guys would have? Pictures of guns? Fighter Airplanes? The options are endless.
