1913 Flying Merkel 20x10 Aluminum Print

Regular price $250.00 $0.00
Founded in1902 by Joe Merkel. Merkel began designing engines for motorcycles in 1902, and built his own motorcycles beginning in 1903. In 1911 the company was taken over by Miami Cycle and Manufacturing Company of Middletown, Ohio. Subsequently, the trademark was changed to "Flying Merkel", and a bright and shiny orange paint was used, which was later described as "Merkel orange”. Production ceased in 1915.
Each motorcycle is photographed for 2-3 hours, creating 60-100 images. Every individual part is lit up, and then bits and pieces of those images are combined into one photograph in Photoshop. The Photoshop process can take up to an additional 40+ hours! The final product is printed on ChromaLuxe® aluminum, giving the photos an almost 3-D appearance. Wall floats are pre-attached to the back of the print and float 3/4 inch off the wall when hung. Easy to hang with 1-2 nails.
