Vintage Picture / Poster Idea

I was going to print out the cover of one of the vintage Cannondale catalogues, frame it, and hang it on my wall as a decoration. I like vintage Cannondale, and I have one so I thought the 1983 cover looks pretty cool https://www.vintagecannondale.com/year/1983/1983.pdf Give me your honest opinion. Is it too cheesy / corny?

Art is in the eye of the beholder. IMHO, not exactly a bike motif on that cover, keep trying.

If you could get rid of the "Cannondale 1983" it would be pretty nice. That is a painting, after all.

I think it's the ONLY bike catalog cover I can remember, and I think it's an iconic image for any 'dale fan.

I'm with Auchen. It means a lot to you as a Cannondale fan so go for it.

I'd hang it on my wall..................and then my wife would throw it on the burn pile. That's why I keep that stuff in the basement.

Seriously though.......my preference would be to frame the actual cover or the whole catalog if you don't want to ruin the complete catalog.

I would like a bike motif, but until I have a dedicated bike room / bike workshop the wife would rather not have it.

A few years ago I was cruising my hood when I came across a lighted Cannondale shop sign. It said "The future of Cycling Cannondale Made in the USA" It hangs above bar today.
