Just had this back from Paul

"See attached....this is the equivalent made by the supplier we know and trust, let us know what the guys think? We hold the hooded version in stock but we would have to buy these in specially, we order once a week for next day delivery so the orders placed for them mite take a little longer than printing items we hold in stock, but supplying and printing them is not a problem.

Usually when printing on a garment like this with a back print your would have a large back print and a small chest logo on the front! The forum logo would not reduce down due to the detail but if they preferred a small chest logo we could come up with something next week, saying that if the guys wanted big logo front and back no problem just not what people are used to seeing! I'm sure it will still look ok.

Let use know thoughts and we can put them up on the website, not sure of costs at this time, we will have to keep the cost down as much as is acceptable as the postage for a bulky item like these can be as much as £9.50 to Oz, I will double check all this but just wonder what the overseas guys would find acceptable to pay including the ridiculous postage price!"

G'day Bill.
Postage isn't too bad. I'd prefer something a little heavier 280gsm is a bit light. I was thinking around the 320-340gsm mark. Large print back and front would do me but see what others think. My next question is can the print be done in a brighter colour like yellow?
Cheers

would assume as a single colour that would not be a problem, but I'll wait for some more replies and send them to Paul or asking him to look

(got to respect your bike knowledge and now also knitwear  *eek* )

  Hello to all.
       As  a newcomer, exploring the various boards, I found reference to a finely crafted T Shirt, bearing a handy cutaway diagram. Checking the order link, I found the supplier has roughly 80 available in each size S to XXL.  This seems a big investment for somebody. Are they still available?  I only found this by accident...I reckon it should appear on the main title page. I am sure quite a few would be sold if promoted a little more actively.  Viewing the posts relating to it indicates a lot of effort went into the design and production. I hope they  do not have to resort to the Burberry Stock Control Method.

  Keep Spannering,  Swarfy.

Swarfy,

The promotion of the T-Shirt is in the form of a sticky topic under the "Chat, Off-Topic and Diverse" board. Here is the link you would find there and I believe it is still active:

https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=11151.0

There is another link on that board that was used for our communications while coming up with the final design.

I predict BSA-Bill will post before I finish typing here, nevertheless, I'll share that the t-shirt supplier has family connection with the forum. I think he is graciously keeping the flag flying for our benefit. I do wish more folks would purchase the T-Shirts, considering the efforts of a few people here that went into them   ( *whistle* *smile* ), not to mention the camaraderie possible if you stumble on a fellow member at meet.

 Hi Richard.  Thanks, that was how I stumbled upon it. I am sure a lot of folks do not know they exist.  That is why promoting it with  a reminder on the main Title Page could be the way to go.

    Be interesting to see how this topic is followed......    Swarfy.

Looking at the Sloppy Joe pic - is it the garment or the person? Wouldn't mind the latter.
As for Bill worrying about being 12 1/2 stone. I'm not a lardy nor do I have a beer gut, but jeez .... if I got down to that no-one would recognise me. And I probably couldn't start my bikes. I'm a tad over 16.

Was that me or another Bill, well I did get down there, a month or so ago, gone up a Kilo or two since but the better half is on Slimming World stuff so I could be getting harder to see again, no to worry tho, been to get scanned today, injected with a radio-isotobe, wait three hours and then a scan, so might be difficult to see me in daylight but I'll glow in the dark  *eek*

Now Tees, yes sites still live, they might well wait for a number of orders before starting a run , I think originally they planned to print and post monthly but as Richard has said numbers were not as forthcoming as had been hoped, but the screen are there so ....
Yes I must fes up to not mentioning the Tees more often, a few non bike related issues have taken my time over the last 18 months, no excuse really just takes your eye of the ball at times.

Also in regard to the sloppy Joe's , Paul did mention something in regard to the weight (not being measured as people assume) .

Anyhow nice that your interested, would suggest you leave a message on the sites, if that don't work get back to me and I'll send mail to Paul or speak with him next time I see him.
He's embroiled with his dad (my brother) trying to fettle a 350 Goldie  my brother has bought after drooling for a decade or so, currently it stars fine but dies once warm on a run when throttle is opened, I know nowt about GP carbs so can't help much

G'day Bill.
Just had a look at the web page. It says over 90 of each size in stock. Will be ordering another two Tee's but would still like a "sweatshirt" printed large both sides. Wouldn't mind paying extra for a special order.
Cheers

Hi Muskrat - following message from Paul

"Ye we can do something for him, tell him to order his T's and we'll work something out, I'll have his email if he orders, I can then message him regarding the sweatshirt :)
And also when he orders get him to add a note so I know he's muskrat."

Cheers Bill
