David Mann “Good Therapy” 11” x 14” Matted Motorcycle Biker Art #7910ezrxmb

“Good Therapy”

This eye-arresting illustration accompanied a story whose biker protagonist, L’il Red, severely injures his right hand when he flattens his ol’ lady’s obnoxious brother. The plot chronicles Red’s efforts to regain the use of his pulverized paw. Eventually, he succeeds, thanks to the “good therapy” of twisting and releasing the throttle on his Sportster day after day. The striking close-up of Red’s throttle hand rivets the viewer’s attention. The hand’s index and little fingers are encircled by symbols of guile and death, while a middle-finger demon licks (or lashes) the face of a screaming woman. Considering the yarn’s essence, into a single illustration, Dave heightens the art’s impact through his skillful use of vivid colors on equally vivid images. The message is clear: Don’t tread on Red.

1949 Harley-Davidson Laconia Gypsy Tour Champ Joe Weatherly 16” x 20” Matted Vintage Motorcycle Ad #4908amot03xmb

Laconia, New Hampshire, June 19, 1949: The 18,000 spectators on hand to witness the 29th Annual New England Gypsy Tour feature event were given a tremendous thrill when last year’s 100-Mile National Road Race Champ, Joe Weatherly, Norfolk, Virginia, made history by repeating his 1948 performance, the first rider to win this grueling event in successive years. Starting slowly, and handicapped by two minor spills early in the race, Weatherly weaved and jockeyed his way to the front about the half-way mark, riding this difficult course like the master he is.

Trailing Weatherly most of the way was another Harley-Davidson star, Win Young, Santa Ana, California, who too second place. Following Young came Miller McDonald, Sal Scirpo, Ray Angstadt, Buck Brigance, Bill Miller and Stan Myers.

Saturday’s 50-Mile Amateur affair also ended in a complete victory for Harley-Davidson riders. George Boss, rough and ready boy from Glencoe, Ontario, Canada, set a wicked pace to take the race in the good time of 1 hour, 3 minutes and 12 seconds. Hot on his tall was Bill McManus, Harley-Davidson hotshot from Knoxville, Tennessee.

To Harley-Davidson goes the distinction of having won five out of the six 100-Mile National Road Race Championships held on the famous Belknap Area course. As in the past, this year’s great race has again given proof that when it takes stamina and reliability, Harley-Davidson motorcycles are by all odds the World’s Champions.

David Mann “Big Front Wheel” 16” x 20” Matted Motorcycle Biker Art #8009ezrxmb

“Big Front Wheel”

This guy is goin’ all out, with a spoked wheel moving so fast that it almost looks like a polished one-piece rim. Who knows if this near-illusion planted a thought in some young designer’s mind, only to be realized years later with CNC technology. What’s clear is that a fenderless, brakeless front wheel and a jockey shift made for uncomplicated lines from handlebar to axle nuts. The conchos’ leather strips on the rider’s chaps function like mini-leather windsocks, which along with his blown-back, wind-whistled hair, clearly reflect the amount of horsepower making its way to the rear wheel. As anyone who’ ever ridden a panhead opened up at full throttle down a lonely stretch of night highway knows, motorcycles offer a sensation of peace, power and solitude that cannot be easily described. However, David’s detailed depiction of such an experience leaves only the sound lacking. And as this biker’s composure suggests, that wind-filled ride may be all the song your soul will ever need.

1955 Harley-Davidson Grand Slam Victory at Daytona 16” x 20” Matted Vintage Motorcycle Ad #5504amot03xmb

Grand Slam Victory for Harley-Davidson in Daytona Races! 1-2-3 Andres, Phillips, Gibson in the 200-Mile National Championship…Andres sets new Daytona record.

In a sensational 1-2-3 winning, Harley-Davidson riders made motorcycling history on the sands of Daytona Beach, March 13. Brad Andres, brilliant San Diego, California, rider led the victory parade with the phenomenal speed of 94.57 mph. His time of 2 hours, 5 minutes, 46.54 seconds sets a new Daytona record and broke the two-year old record of Paul Goldsmith also made with a Harley-Davidson K. Following Andres in short order to take second and third honors came Jimmy Phillips of Pasadena and Johnny Gibson of Duarte, both from California and Harley-Davidson mounted.

Daytona’s long, hard 200-Mile grind at sustained high speed has again demonstrated the overwhelming superiority of the Harley-Davidson. No matter what make you ride today, you owe it to yourself to drop in to the Harley-Davidson dealer and test ride one of these famous models. You ride a real winner and a proven record maker when you ride the sensational Harley-Davidsons.

Dan Richards wins 100-Mile Amateur. Also sets new Daytona record.

Dan’s speed of 92.43 mph. was almost two miles faster than the previous record.

David Mann ”Brandon’s Alky Hall of Fame” 16” x 20” Matted Motorcycle Biker Art #8007ezrxmb

“Brandon’s Alky Hall of Fame”

In 1980, Dave secured his bike to a trailer, stuffed some clothes in a bag, grabbed his prized record collection of hymns played on the sitar, and set out in search of adventure, fame, and romance in the glittery glare of laid-back Los Angeles. Not long after settling in, he paid this tribute to some special people back in his hometown, the Sunshine State. Although the bar depicted here is imaginary, the old friends from Florida shown whooping it up at Brandon’s are quite real. For example, there’s Stoney, a good friend who was nailed on his way to work by a woman running a stop sign. Stoney is the guy on the bike, doing a burnout at the bar while the other patrons react to the ear-splitting entertainment. Gary Barbour makes an appearance, and at the far left, lost beneath his cowboy hat, is none other than Arlen Ness. Then there’s Brandon himself, the guy toward the right wearing an eye patch. It was Brandon who stayed up till the wee hours one night, helping Dave scribble all those names on the wall as a chronicle and tribute to his friends in Florida – as well as some new ones in California.

“Rubber-Kneed”

These days it seems as if everyone falls into two big categories – filthy rich or dirt poor. While the bucks-down Hog-Ridin’ Fool has to break his ass just to keep a little hi-test in the tank, his affluent counterpart may ride simply to keep up with the latest trend. Rather than risk rejection by the Perrier-drinking, sushi-eating, crowd of weenies he calls friends, he dashes down to the dealership, kicks the tires on an accessory-laden floor model, writes a personal check for $18,766.29, and rides off on his new fashion accessory. But back in the days when a man had to live by his wits rather than his wallet, necessity mothered some pretty clever innovations. In this 1980 rendering of yet another rain-ravaged ride, the biker has transformed a couple of trashed inner tubes into protective gear for his legs. “We couldn’t afford real chaps,” Dave recalls, “so we had to improvise. During the rainy season, we’d oil our jeans till they’d stand up by themselves.” I love reminiscing about the good ol’ days. Young guys could learn a lot from us old bikers, like the fact that ‘way back then, water flew off the front tire in the wrong direction. But try and tell that to kids these days…and they won’t believe you.

“Hollywood Nights”

Of all the paintings that David Mann has given us over the years, none hold more significance to his career than this one. “It was the very first painting I did,” David began. “I had it by my bike at a car show in Kansas City, Missouri. Tiny from the San Fernando Valley in California took a picture of it, and showed it to Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, and it became the first I ever sold. Had just moved back to Kansas City from California, somewhere around 1959-60, and I’d just built my first Harley. In fact, I had the first chopped Harley in town.” Imagine it is the beginning of a new decade, one ending the naivete of the ’50s and entering the socially turbulent ’60s. Riding the crest of that time line, a group of bikers unsure of what’s to come, blaze through the hills south of Los Angeles, living the rebel life in a way that would soon define and epitomize an entire generation. In every sense, they were the real deal, yet so unaware of the world they were about to help reshape. But they weren’t just rebels with a cause; they were rebels with chopped Harley-Davidsons, and they were about to become the harkening wind in a decade’s night, and a subculture’s dreams.

“Dark Roadside Repairs”

It may have been every rider’s nightmare, but it was a constant problem: running out of gas. Gauges were not always mounted on stripped down choppers, smaller tanks were the style, and a gas reserve wasn’t always a mechanical option. What usually saved the day (or night) was a beer can on the side of the road to be filled with fuel drained from a brother’s ride. An Easyriders reader once sent in a letter thanking an anonymous biker for pushing his out-of-gas scooter quite a few miles to a station. He did so by placing his size 12 boot on the fuel-starved Harley’s swingarm leg and keeping it there for the duration of the ride. Fortunately for the bikers in this early classic Mann illustration, a flashlight and beer can filled the resourcefulness bill. Even a towrope might have been an option; regardless, you counted on your bros to come through for you, because cell phones and highway call boxes on such fateful nights were the stuff of wishful thinking.
