Default David Mann

I was at a buddies place tonight and we were shootin the shit, when he tells me how he came across some cool posters in a poster rack that came with a car that he bought. He asked me if i had ever seen these posters before. The fucker got about 15 David Mann posters for free... damnit!!!

Way to cool.. and a good bonus.

My question is, does anyone have a favorite David Mann picture? I grew up with these posted all over my dads shop and others. Way too cool.

I remember that exact poster up on my father's garage wall when I was a kid. I always loved that one.

Wow! I've seen a lot of his "stuff", but not that one - guy on a "Vinnie". Too cool.

This is my favorite. The bar is a couple blocks from my old house and I use to see Dave there quite frequently.

"Know ye that this is the kingdom of kicks-wine, bikes, drugs, and chicks."

Still have this poster and a couple more in tatters, trying to figure out how to keep it from completely falling apart.

I think I heard someone say they did. I quit reading Easyriders in the late 80's so I don't know for sure. I'd like to see the bike if someone built it. I still think about building a Knuck basketcase I have in that style. Wouldn't be a clone, just same style scooter. Gotta bunch of other stuff to finish first though.

I always got a kick out of the tattoo parlour poster. The one where the artist is doing a "property of" tattoo on some lady's ass, except that Dave miss-spelled "property". "Porperty"?? LOL

Someone did build a copy of the Apehanger Daze bike in the poster a few years back. I don't remember where I saw the pictures of it. I believe the guy lives in Florida, maybe someone knows him and can post a picture. Best that I remember, it was a pretty accurate copy.

The bike Dave is sitting on in the picture is the same panhead that was in the Roth photo poster of "Beautiful Buzzard". That bike evolved and was even done up "digger" style at one time. I met Dave a long time ago, when both of us were young. We had a mutual friend that worked at Wild Child Customs in Kansas City. Dave had just returned from California with the Buzzard bike. It was years later when our mutual friend told me that "Dave" was the same guy painting the ER centerspreads.

Cool, real art survivors. Your third pic reminded me of this one I have. I've got a comic book of these cycle drawings (Wilson) that's somewhere in the house. I really need to find it.
