Large Printable Posters

A magazine ad from 1986 was brought to my attention last week. I remembered I had a large format file of that print. (Above.) The picture was composed and taken by photographer Mike Graves. He used an old sheet of plywood that was on the floor of his father’s garage for many years, to catch oil drips from an antique car.

On this somewhat dirty rustic backdrop, he laid out a brand new pristine Fuso frame, surrounded by various tools. Some were tools he borrowed from me, others were from his father’s antique tool collection. The result, a very interesting black and white art photo.

The magazie ad can be seen left. When Mike Graves sent me the original file a few years back, he described the picture as being, “Sharp as a tack.”

It is, the detail is pretty amazing. I set this picture up in PDF format as a printable 24 in. x 18 in. poster, and downloaded the file to my Bike Registry website.

You can open the link here:


It is a large file and may take a while to open. Hit refresh if it is taking too long. Or maybe try a different browser. There is no need to copy the file, if you know of someone who has a large format digital printer, you can simply email them the above link, and they can print you a copy direct from the web page. I had two test copies printed on semi-gloss paper and the results were good. Try not to handle the prints too much before they are dry.

Another 24 x 18 poster I have (Above.) is a copy of one I had printed for the 1990 Interbike Show. It is a color picture of a Fuso frame built in Columbus Max tubing. It has all the specs printed at the bottom. The PDF for this poster is here:


Make sure the printer is set on “Print full size.” Feel free to print copies for your own use without further permission from me. Both these posters will fit in a standard 24 x 18 inch poster frame. These are quite inexpensive to buy from places like Target and Wal-Mart.

These links are now permanently on the Bike Registry website. There are other PDF files of articles I wrote for “Cycling” and “Velo-News” back in the 1970s. Also other interesting stuff, like spec sheets for the Fuso and Recherche, and prices from the late 1980s

Dave the add was in the Coors Classic 1986 Mag. I like the wording 'compare the quality, compare the price,' NO one else comes close. Very true as many of your buyers will attest. With this world becoming automated & computer gererated products. a great shame that the HAND BUILT by CRAFTSMEN products are becoming obsolete. This is true in all items produced now.

Dave, thanks very much for making these pdf files available. I'm definitely going to get some of these printed as posters. Then I will need to construct a man cave to adorn with them. I love this kind of stuff!
