Do you have any bike art?

I've been thinking of adding some bike tin signs/art to my work area. Anyone have cool bike art, etc haging in their workspaces?
Found these inexpensive tin signs on Amazon:

Bikes themselves are the best kind of bike art. Park them up against the wall or hang them.
Art imitates life, But Life imitates art better,

Except for my framed Hinault Renault Braveault poster. That $***t is The Bomb.

I do not want art that will make me feel guilty for not riding enough.

I’ve produced some…


“Stage victory”


“Riders in the Hilly Hundred”


Can’t remember what I called this one. I gave it away.


“A Winter Bike Ride”

I always thought Hinault looked like he was in his mid-50s! I used to think it was simply because I was a young kid when he was racing (and all adults looked "old") but he really does look much older than his years when racing. Hard to believe he was only 32 on retirement!

Not sure I've met Art. Is he the guy with the 'chainring dirt' tattooed on his right calf?
Would these count?
SPEED THRILLS, PERIOD
T-shirt from LA Olympics was too memorable to part with after it became holey.

Nicest I've seen, and I'd buy a couple prints if the right ones were available, are Timothe Girard's watercolors.

He has made two prints available on Etsy. Hopefully he makes more prints available. He's so talented. He's not a full time artist..his watercolors are his version of "doodles"..

I'd post an example, but I expect he has them copyrighted.

The FIRST artistic image of a mountain bike. This poster is from 1978, before the term "mountain bike" had been coined.

This watercolor was the first commercial sale for a woman who had just graduated from art school. I paid her $50 for it.

My wife got me quite a few for my office\bike room. I really love the dogs on the bike. I also have an old frame I am looking to hang, I just have not gotten around to it as I might be re-arranging my room a bit in the near future.

Some. Poster from a local bike shop from the 80s.



This light hangs at my daughter’s house as her porch light.



I made this key holder after seeing another one somewhere. Cogs, chain, spoke nipples and the keys hang on Presta valves.



On the bike art by Kustom Caps to my design. The middle one is on my touring bike and is a pun…that no one gets.



And here is a small sample of the ones that I wear on my belt regularly.







I have about 110 of them.

A bike itself is bike art. In the days when I was single, I had my home decorated with vintage bikes. I made wooden racks which were lit from above, with two bikes on each rack, one above the other. I had 8 of them in my living room.

Unfortunately, my wife has different opinions on what constitutes art.
