wayne,

i think i bought the same poster you, on ebay. iirc, the seller is list member hugh enox. after the purchase i corresponded with him and found out that he was involved with the design and/or printing of the original poster back in the day. his reprint poster is very nice - i believe it was made from the original plates, so it is identical to the original. the main differences are the quality of the paper (the original was matte and not as heavy), and the ink (the original used a lighter blue). in fact, based on the dark blue ink of the poster being sold by the cinelli twins guy, i'd say that it is one of hugh's reprints, not an original.

hopefully hugh can shed some light on this and tell us more about his posters. and btw, hugh's packing is so good, it is almost worth buying the poster just to see how he packs it. no kidding (and no kickback either).

I have an original one, now a bit tattered around the edges from being push-pinned on many shop walls. That very poster was recently reprinted in some numbers and offered in a BIN auction on eBay. (Can't remember who, but a detailed search might turn up something). I bought one to replace the original one, which is still stashed in a storage tube. The new one is printed in blue ink on heavy poster stock. It's a standard poster size, so frames are easy to find. I bought a black poster frame, then painted it red to match some trim in my new shop. I also dry-mounted the poster on foam-core before framing it in the new red frame. A nice presentation that makes a really nice addition to the shop.

Now, if someone would reprint the QR poster......
