EPIC BIKER ART LEGEND | LONG LIVE EASYRIDERS’ HAROLD R. ROBINSON, JR.

Easyriders was a great biker mag– back in the day. In fact, it was the official reading resource of our household growing up.  Yeah, I read the articles, snuck peeks at pics of ol’ ladies (pre-silicone days, and looking like their upper half had been subjected to major G4-force wind, if you catch my drift…), but mostly I drooled over the mesmerizing artwork of legendary illustrators Dave Mann and Hal Robinson. Hal will always be remembered  for his “Red Rider” and the epic “Miraculous Mutha” cartoons.  What an amazing artist who influenced a generation of illustrators that followed.  Sadly he passed on to the other side back in ’84, but his art will live forever.

  1. Easy Rider started selling magazines just after I got my first Harley. I`m sure that I`m not the only one that the magazine influenced! Dave Mann & Hal Robinson were two GREAT artists- both with their own style. Thank you for honoring & paying tribute to Hal Robinson! I hope you feature Dave Mann soon (I hope I haven`t missed it?) Thanks again, Ross

  2. coolest post by far. this blog has hit on something. i am very glad that i stumbled in to it by accident. the mcqueen stuff, the bikes, the babes, keep ‘em coming. this is one of the very few cool things around.

  3. qu-easyriders-was the law here,loved so much of it [pre silicone][",]it came as a relief that all biker chics weren,t like mutha!

  4. Great post. Reminds me a bit of the art/copy inside John Muir’s book, ‘How to keep your volkswagen alive forever’. Hotrodded, tricked out, souped-up, chopped down VWs were the rage for awhile in the 60s and 70s; ever considered an article/entry on that phenomena?

  5. What a difference from then and now. True biker art, pre silicone “ole ladies”
    When bikes were built by owners, not some media hyped idiots that have to beat a bike together with a hammer… NO “bike nights” instead, it was “we aren’t serving you, leave now”…
    Still miss the ole days…LOL REAL riders, no BIFFS & BUFFYS on the Toys for tots runs… OH well…
