There's no question that the artwork of David Mann has inspired generations of bikers, builders and chopper lovers. He's up there with the best of 'em.
The chopper is a uniquely American form of motorcycle - you either get them or not, there's no middle ground. The way of life and mystique that surrounds them is entirely a product of the visionaries that helped create that scene. Mann was at the vanguard.
His paintings really do say more than a thousand words.
