Anyone know where I can procure some decent Guzzi-related Pin Up art?

Wow! Those are real nice!  :thumb:

BUT not exactly what I had in mind. I was thinking more vintage inspired art (a la Gil Elvgren) as opposed to photographs.

^^ This. These are a series of ads, chiefly for the 1000SP, by the British importer at the time, with the line "Long legged and easy to live with." Look for these:

I was fortunate enough to be able to build my own pin up, it only took me three years

Hi-Res pics are on this site.

Love that Gomme Dunlop (Dunlop Rubber) one. Google image doesn't show a copy for sale. Love to have it for my workshop.

Anyone able to identify the goddess? Ceres? But with wings??

Could it be fascist-era Italian artwork?

No idea, I've been saving everything artwork/Guzzi related on this hard drive for years, I have a bunch more, some Dusty would nuke and give me a phone call about  :laugh:

I'll have to get a tour of your collection some day!

Here's an interesting poster of a Griso and a leg, that I just found while looking for the Gomme Dunlop.



It's available for purchase at fineartamerica.com. Seems to qualify as a pin-up without, I hope, riling Dusty.

BTW, fineartamerica.com has all sorts of "artistic" renderings of Guzzi models (machines, not women), including classics and newer ones, like this 2016 Eldo, again for sale as posters:

Moto,
 
Great photo.  Although it's not Guzzi, the hard-to-get Pirelli calendars are terrific.  There are some masterpieces by Helmut Newton.
