AGOURA HILLS, CA – Surrounded by an array of vintage motorcycles, internationally acclaimed artist and sculptor Steve Posson unveiled the six-foot bronze piece "Flying Mile," during a special event held on June 23 at World Class Motoring.
Honoring legendary racer Albert “Shrimp” Burns and his 1914 Indian 8-Valve, the piece pays tribute to AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Burns, one of the top dirt and board track racers of the 1910s and early '20s.
The diminutive Burns, who rode for both the Harley-Davidson and Indian factory teams, was the youngest champion of his era, winning his first titles at the age of 15.
Prior to his focus on fine art sculpture, Posson studied at Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design. He has designed prototype bodywork for Jeep, Volvo and Renault, as well as motorcycle designs for Kawasaki, Yamaha and BMW.
