Vintage Motorcycle Paintings

Horseman 1

One of the cool things about working on this site is coming into contact with folks I wouldn’t have otherwise met. This is especially exciting when its talented guys like Nik Coole. Nik dropped me a line after finding the site via the plug that Ryan at the Jockey Journal gave us. Along with his email he included a bunch of images of his illustration and paint work. Once I caught a glipse of his paintings I was 10 types of stoked. His paintings of classic motorcycle racers Victor Horsman and Tazio Nuvolari are phenomenal - they struck a chord with me through their emotion and depiction of an era, scene and purity that I have a deep rooted affection for. Nik also sent along some images of other kustom kulture pieces he’s done, as well as some examples of the paint work he’s done on a couple of bikes. Cool stuff all around, Nik has boat loads of talent and I can’t wait to see more work from him in the future.
