A chopper motorcycle stamp? What's next, a Mount Rushmore image with the Teutul's faces super-imposed on it?

Re: The USPS Time Machine Stamp

From the story:

"Three of the stamps feature digital illustrations of a 1918 Cleveland, 1940 Indian Four and a 1965 Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide that are modeled after motorcycles in existence today."

I'd like to see a stamp honoring the time machine they used to take modern motorcycles back to 1918, 1940, and 1965.
There's only three Teutuls. Maybe Vinnie could fill the fourth spot?
Re: The USPS Time Machine Stamp

I think what they're trying to say is that the artwork on the first three stamps was modeled after actual bikes, while the bike on the chopper stamp is just a digital creation meant to capture the spirit of 1970s choppers--a fictional character of sorts.
It will be the first time some of these bikes made it across the country without breaking down.
Is there a Ma Teutul out there somewhere? I suppose it is possible the Teutuls were cultured in a petre dish in some secret psy-ops lab so they could drop the average IQ of the populace even further.
can u get this news anywhere but MO? I would like to pay more than $11.94! I'd like to see a chap shootout soon. I am torn between leather and fur...
Re: The USPS Time Machine Stamp

You said it better than they did. :)
I actually bought the recent aviation release from the USPS. Much better than these 3 old bikes and a FREAKIN' chopper.
I would go with imitation fur or leather if I wzs you. PETA will be all over your ass if you show up with the real stuff.

Stamp collection! HA ha!
They might be dropping the average IQ, but I bet they are raising the average yearly income by quite a bit. Can you imagine the coin those guys are bringing in? I wish my IQ was as low.
All I hear in my head is the REM Song "'s the end of the world as we know it.." I really hope this chopper craze goes like Disco did in the 70's with a REVOLT. I'm tired of it.
No doubt that they're raking in some major coin. I was reading Chevy High Performance magazine last month and they had a piece on supercharging Vinnies Cadillac CTS V.

I know, I know. Those are the only stamps I have ever bpought as a collection piece. I have them framed on my desk. Very nice artwork.
