12 Last-Minute Motorcycle Gifts for the 12 Days of Christmas

For loved ones who love motorcycle racing, we present an assorment of motorcycle gifts.

| January/February 2007

Finishing up your Christmas shopping at the last minute, yet again? Here are 12 original motorcycle gift ideas for the motorcyclist on your list.

Top Pick: Up-N-Smoke Engine Project Prints

We’re suckers for breathtaking photos, and Daniel Peirce’s collection of motorcycle engine photographs pushes all of our buttons. It features many of the greats, including everything from a beautiful Vincent Black Shadow V-twin to a sandcast Honda CB750. There’s even a Pierce and an Ariel Square Four, with more to be added in the future.

In fact, we’re such fans of Daniels' aesthetics that we talked him into putting together the image for the plaques (above) for our European People’s Choice Concours d’Elegance at the 2006 Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, Ala. And just in case our recommendation isn’t enough, consider this: Even the folks at the Barber Motorsports Museum respect his work, as his prints are but a few of the pieces of art for sale in the gift shop there.

The Gift Selection

1. Perfect for decorating an office or garage, we love this poster from the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. A limited-edition reproduction of the 1926 Milwaukee State Fair National Motorcycle Championship, only 1,000 posters will be produced. Each print is numbered and has an image size of 19.5in x 26.5in. Visit the Museum gift shop online for shirts, hats and a variety of other posters. Price: $25. More info: National Motorcycle Museum 

2. London’s famous Ace Café is a long bike ride away, but the spirit of the place is close to the hearts of motorheads everywhere. Give a Bike Cartoon T-Shirt or Ace Café London Mug to your favorite café racer pal. Prices: $8.50 (mug) and $28.50 (t-shirt) at current exchange rates. More info: Ace Café London 

3. The Superior Sound Of Classic Racing Bikes is a collection of motorcycle racing sounds from a bygone era, when big singles roared alongside howling multi-cylinder and shrieking, unmuffled two-stroke engines. After listening to the sounds and interviews with stars of the past like Jim Redman, Giacomo Agostini and Phil Read, you may wonder if GP racing isn’t just a little poorer in these homogenous days. Narrated by Phil Read. Price: $20. More info: Aerostich
