Classifieds / Original Greg Siple Art (late 70's early 80's)
« on: June 06, 2023, 07:28:08 am »
Hello all,
I acquired this piece at auction many years ago.
I immediately recognized it as a Greg Siple for obvious reasons.
Having been a lifelong tourist and member of Bikecentennial all the way through today I really wanted this for my office.
It has hung proudly in my office where I could see it everyday, but now that I'm older and moving to smaller digs, it's time to pass this on.
Size is appx.15.5 x 21.5 for the piece itself. The frame, matte and UV protectant glass are too difficult/expensive to ship so are not included.
Piece will be lightly rolled and packed carefully for you to frame as you wish.
This is a delightful piece of work and makes me smile every time I look at it because I know what each of the "accessories" is for and why they are there : )

The plaque that came with this was misplaced during the framing process so sadly is lost to time. The image of it is from the original auction house listing.
I do not know who the original recipient of this was  or what they did to get such a lovely gift from the Bikecentennial team, but I know they must have been truly special.

This really is a piece of Adventure cycling from nearly the days of inception. I doubt anyone at the time would have thought that 40+ years later it would be what it is today.
I am still proud to be a member.

If you want to be the steward of this piece of ACA history, contact me for price , priority preference WILL be given to long standing ACA members and ACA staff.

Looking forward to a new ACA route to ride. Wondering if anyone is planning to do it this first season. I'm this close (holds fingers almost together) to scrapping my current plans and doing this one westbound. Any like minded folks?
