Canada Post releases new, motorcycle- themed permanent domestic stamps today. The new stamps now feature two motorcycles from the turn of the last century – the 1908 CCM Lightweight Motor Cycle and the 1914 Indian.
Matt Warburton designed the stamps. “I’ve been a motorcyclist all my life,” said Warburton. “My Dad got me into motorbikes. It was my Dad’s love of motorcycles that got me interested in them as a young boy. He was incredibly excited and proud about these stamps.”
The stamps show two views of each of the bikes; a profile and an overhead view giving a rider’s-eye view of the machine.
Fittingly enough, the first of the motorcycle stamps will be cancelled in Port Dover, Ontario, the site of a motorcycle rally every Friday the 13th. The stamps are available at Canada Post offices and retail counters across the country. If snail mail is still something you use, then these stamps are for you.
