What actually is "SPECIAL GERMAN PHOTOGRAPHIC PAPER " as opposed to Kodak Special Photographic Paper ?
"Impecunious"? Now THAT is a 1500 dollar word if I ever saw one.......

I had what is probably the best photographic house in Canada do these prints. The guy told me he can only get the top quality paper from Germany . He has an amazing setup and I was duly impressed so I entrusted the job to him. The results are impressive.
I know it probably seems outrageous but I have sold 2 already at that price and the last time I checked we were still in a capitalist system. I have plenty of other yardlongs I would be happy to copy and sell for considerably less but none of them hold a candle to this one. If you are a student of motorcycling history ( I thought we all were here) show me another more interesting race photo with such clarity and intrigue and details never before seen. I showed this to Dan Statnekov and he was blown away.
For those of you who are flummoxed by big words like Mr Big ( great name, easy to spell) I first encountered the word impecunious in a famous motorcycling history book written by a famous Californian motorcycling history authority . He would have loved this yardlong but he is sadly not with us anymore.

and your stealing ( yes I said stealing ) of photo's from the world wide web and posting them on your own personal website with a caption stating chris haynes owned is perfectly acceptable. maybe to you a grammer school educated, 2nd generation immigrant to california. people that steal should not be allowed on the world wide web
who on this forum or any other that is selling something is not making a profit - if they were making a loss I don't think they would be selling . unless they do that in califonia - sell at a loss, no wonder california needs money
barry that is a killer yardlong - would love a copy but excelsior and harley topper parts are at the front of the hobby spending list

Should'nt This be listed in "FOR SALE " not " parking lot chatter " ? This is by all means is an Ad & not a discussion on what should be charged for non Original photo copies RIGHT ? Can it be placed in the proper area?
I would like to add this comment. Go to any art show and see what artists are asking, and getting for their prints, paintings, and sculptures. I think Barry's picture is a work of art so I look at it in that context.
