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

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?

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.

I actually bought the recent aviation release from the USPS. Much better than these 3 old bikes and a FREAKIN' chopper.
