motorcycle stampsThe United States Postal Service officially unveiled their set of four commemorative motorcycle postage stamps yesterday.

The unveiling, which took place in Sturgis, South Dakota, revealed four motorcycles that capture the history of American motorcycling.

You'll have to wait until August 7th to get these stamps. They'll first go on sale at the 66th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and then go on sale nationwide the following day.

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. The fourth stamp shows a circa 1970 chopper, a computer generated stamp image created by the stamp artist in consultation with professional chopper builders.

The illustrations were created by Steve Buchanan of Winsted, CT, based on existing restored motorcycles, reference photographs, and consultation with owners and experts.
