Cheap Motorcycle Paintings

Motorcycling isn’t just a sport, a hobby, or a method of transportation. To many motorcyclists, riding is a lifestyle, a passion, a life-long love affair. Growing up and growing old shouldn’t mean having to sell that love short. My years of hanging posters on my walls are somewhere in the distance in my chrome rear view mirrors. Nowadays I’m looking for motorcycle paintings to hang up on my walls, preferably cheap motorcycle paintings that match my decor. Here’s where to find them.

Over the past year I’ve shared my quest to becoming a home owner. I wrote about my trouble finding a house fit for a motorcyclist in a city like Toronto. I wrote about selling my condo, and the woman I thought I’d spend the rest of my life with. I wrote about how I managed to afford a house when I was twenty-five years old, and how you can too.

I finally moved in seven months ago. I’ve renovated two kitchens, a washroom, and a few other odds and ends. If you’ve ever bought a house, you know it takes a while to make a house a home, and then it takes a little longer to make a home your home… and part of that can be done by putting some art up on the walls.

I knew Etsy was the place to go for awesome motorcycle gifts ever since I wrote about the site on bikerMetric. I just didn’t realize that Etsy was also a great source of cheap motorcycle paintings.

My first bike was a scooter. I taught myself how to ride and have owned four scooters over the years. The first piece I bought was a row of vintage Vespa scooters with classic white wall tires.

My second floor hallway is yellow and besides a large African tribal mask and a picture of my father and I, it’s pretty empty. For $116 USD, this four foot wide oil painting will cover a long empty wall and give the hallway some character. Thanks to ArtworkOnly on Etsy.

Ever since I first saw the Harley-Davidson V-Rod, I wanted one. Even while working in the motorcycle industry with no affiliation with Harley-Davidson I had a V-Rod poster up in my office. The V-Rod is quintessential muscle cruiser. Long, low, and mean looking. The V-Rod is a stone cold stunner. When I was scrolling through cheap motorcycle paintings and came across this one I just had to have it:

The V-Rod is going in my bedroom. Can you tell I’m single? My bedroom is a rich blood orange colour with white trim throughout, and this piece should look great. Shipping was free for both items, and once again I’m giving a big thank you to ArtworkOnly on Etsy.

  • 1) Take your time. You might want to try searching for motorbike as well as for motorcycle. Etsy is huge, and not everyone is using keywords.
  • 2) Make sure you know what you’re getting. Some artwork pieces are just reprints, not originals. Don’t be afraid to send the seller a message if the product info page isn’t clear on what it is you’re getting. Generally I’ve always gotten replies within a few hours.
  • 3) Measure twice, order once. Know what size piece you’re buying, and what size wall you’re buying it for.
  • 4) Think about colors. You should consider the colors of your walls, trims, and other decor pieces and accents where you’ll be mounting your painting.
  • 5) Don’t forget about mounting. Some paintings will come pre-mounted and ready to be hung on your walls as soon as you’ve unwrapped them. Other pieces will simply be rolled up in a tube and you’ll have to spend the time and money it takes to get them mounted. Budget accordingly.
That’s it! Check out these 5 awesome motorcycle gifts on Etsy, and happy hunting. Enjoy the site!
