I was walking down to the local pub on Friday afternoon and a cyclist coming the other way was wearing one of these!
I didnt have a chance to stop him but found the product with google.
Looked amazing. Now I know its a cycling jersey but wtf its very cool.
I have no affiliation with the maker.
Its also from the early fifties circa 1952 so fits in well with our BSA motorcycles and could be perfect to wear under the leather jacket to keep warm.
Thought I would share. I've ordered one with long sleeves, sadly summers coming so might not see much wearing initially
both the you tube clip and the article on the BSA cycling team a good watch and reading respectively.
hope you enjoy

Very nice. Bit too expensive for me.

The history lesson about the cycling team was very interesting.

Great looking shirt RR - though I think if I had that amount of cash to spare I would treat myself to an SRM oil pump  :o

$$$ yep, made in NZ from merino, so definitely not a third world slave labour product. Life is short, so I'm not denying myself a merino jersey in the time I have.
But appreciate not everyone thinks like me.
with an SRM oil pump currently at 300 quid (600 NZD odd) thats 3 merino jerseys!
but definitely not a t shirt price

Wow - the pump price has shot up since I last looked - have to find a busier corner for the missus  ;)
The shirts certainly are tempting but I know if I get one the first time I put it on the bike will get jealous and break down and it will get covered in oil and grease.
