This is an individual, original, one-off piece of artwork by myself, of one of the greatest motorcycle riders of all time, Mike Hailwood. Known as "Mike The Bike" in his heyday, he was one of the few to compete at Grand Prix level both on a bike and in a car.


A little background to my art; pyrography dates back to the 17th century, and literally means "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing) and is achieved by hand using a special electrically heated pen.


This original, framed piece of 10” x 8” artwork has been burnt into the birch ply totally by hand, taking in excess of 7 hours to complete. The finished work was then twice coated with Danish Oil to protect it, and then framed without glass to allow the artwork to “breathe”.


The 1" deep, wider frame is black, and has both a stand and a bracket on the reverse for wall mounting.
