File:Spiderman_Hayabusa_-_Front.jpg[edit]

Derivative work of the bike's paintjob. –Tryphon 12:33, 31 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Maybe also some "problems" in Category:Advertising and sub-categories. --MGA73 (talk) 14:32, 31 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • If you look at the rest of Category:Custom Hayabusa, as well as Category:Custom motorcycles, and search for custom motorcycles on Flickr, you'll see that the whole genre is rife with derivative works. Custom motorcycles are a kind of folk art that takes its inspiration from the things the artist sees around them every day, which means Spider-man and Gulf Oil and everything else. If you leave out the bikes derived from pop culture symbols, you end up misunderstanding the subject. So it would be a shame if only a fraction of the custom motorcycles out there could be seen here.--Dbratland (talk) 17:57, 31 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've mentioned this topic at the peer review for Suzuiki Hayabusa, since the more general issue of copyrighted images of custom Hayabusas is vexing me. Please feel free to participate.
