Oct. 18, 2010 at 1:46pmPHOTOGRAPHY OF BOB MAGILL | EPIC IMAGES OF AMERICAN MOTORCYCLING

This Web Watch item comes from The Selvedge Yard:

THESE GUYS (EH-HEM, AND GAL) ARE COOL BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT TRYIN’ TO BE– THEY’RE SIMPLY DOIN’ WHAT THEY LOVE TO DO.  RIDIN’.  THESE EPIC SHOTS TAKEN BACK IN THE 1940s – 50s PERFECTLY SHOW THE NATURAL, RAW BEAUTY OF MOTORCYCLING IN ITS PURIST FORM.  THE GEAR IS NO NONSENSE AND RUGGED SPORTSWEAR, AND THE EXPRESSIONS OF GRIT AND JOY ON THEIR FACES ARE PRICELESS– CAPTURED BY THE LEGENDARY MOTORCYCLING PHOTOGRAPHER BOB MAGILL (1917-2005).  RIDIN’ NEVER LOOKED BETTER. ROLLED, WORN DENIM.  ENGINEER BOOTS.  LEATHERS AND GOGGLES AND CAPS– OH, MY.
