The first of 85 million classic "American Motorcycles" commemorative stamps, guaranteed to cross the country for just 39 cents, started their journey by kick-starting the 66th Anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally today. The 1918 Cleveland, 1940 Indian Four and 1965 Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide that modeled for the stamps were showcased at the event. The fourth stamp, depicting a circa 1970 Chopper, was computer generated by the stamp artist.
