Check out Petr Trojan’s moto-cross art at the web page above. He’s added some new prints of some old Czech moto-heros.

Petr has very nice art of motocross, speedway, and rally car racing, including some charcoal renderings of modern MX riders. But I really like his ’60s and ’70s-era motocross and scrambles work. Very nice. He says he will have prints available soon. I hope he does.

Once again the fine folks at Practicalia have been kind enough to recreate some high-quality Jawa Chay-Zed emblems for us. And once again I have saved them out in a variety of formats that should prove useful for all you ZedHeads out there. Both tank emblems are saved as a single file. Don’t let the jagged little preview images to the left worry you. These are high-quality, vector files (except the GIF) that can be sized as big or as small as you want. I just took the big GIF and did a quick reduction to shrink it for a preview. Take your pick, but don’t spend them all in one place.

Just right-click and “Save Link As…” on the file format you want.

One of the things that always bugs me is not being able to get decent logo images for the old vintage bike brands. If I want to make some kind of graphic or flyer or use it on the web I have to scrounge the internet and try to find something. And usually it’s a crappy scan of some old sticker or magazine ad, or old race flyer. I can’t fix that for everything, but I can fix it for a couple of things. I had my friends at Practicalia LLC recreate a couple of CZ logos in a vector format so I could use them at any size I want.

First is the very nice red/blue/black Jawa-CZ “Choice of Champions” logo. I really like this one because you don’t see it very often. A while back CZ Guy was nice enough to send me a scan of an original Choice of Champions sticker to use as a pattern. Next is the more traditional black/red round CZ logo. This is the one you most often see on jerseys from Bertus and Metro Racing. I’ll try and get the early CZ tank badge logo next and post it here, too. In the meantime, here’s the two I have in a variety of formats:
