MotoFlyer - 5'x3', acrylic on canvas and paper

This is a large painting I'm working on for a friend/motorcycle enthusiast. My next step is to add some dark Ducati-style racing stripes on either side of the figure, near the edges of the canvas.  The racer is based on a vintage poster, so I'm a copycat.  Thoughts? 

Any suggestions on which type of varnish I should use to seal this? I've never painted anything larger than 11x14 but I think I should coat this piece with a protective layer.  Any help would be appreciated.

Is that newsprint you painted over?  Eeek!  Newsprint is highly acidic.  I have no idea how to preserve newsprint, so good luck.

That's just thick paper with a parts list printed on it. No newspaper. It's covered in about 5 layers of paints mixed with gel medium.
