Well, I'm not a graphics designer so I would love to see more submittals to the game. At the risk of being hackneyed, ordinary and indistinctive  *whistle*, I have taken a shot at something a bit different. If this has any legs I can make adjustments (or burn my computer) if anyone cares to offer suggestions.

Not sure yet how the gold will look when viewed in this post. Nimrod, I wish I had waited for your comment, because I ordered one with white graphics earlier this morning. No harm in having more than one. Open to whatever further comments there may be, including, if you wish, "Give it up, Richard."

 Hiya Folks, I'm not much of a printed shirt kinda type, but all the ideas I've seen have merit in their own ways.

  All are good, some are too busy, and the cutaway one could be any twin, but I think the latest one in gold is simplistic enough and probably something I would be more inclined toward (but probably won't- no offense) *wink2*
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy

The gold and black timing cover design is fine for me in all ways

1956 A10 Golden Flash EA7-168x, CA10 913x, left BSA together for Liverpool, 5th Dec 1955.

1949 B31 rigid “400cc hot rod” (favourite bike)

1949 C11 rigid, but why!!! (cos it was cheap)

1937 B21, missing parts so mission impossible?

1952 Armstrong Siddeley Whitley for rainy days (with wife).

GL1800 Goldwing not sure why, maybe cos it always starts

Just to add a view, am a fan of the old BSA advert that made it to the top of the forum page, just change\add\edit text.
May imply some expensive printing process to get high quality, but that should not pose any problem.

Of course, that graphic was selected by you. You may remember that I made a couple of those last time we discussed this topic. I also love the nostalgic adverts but not everyone does. Also remember RichardLs  comments about a large area of plasticised printing not feeling good on a warm day. The other thing is the inks would be quite dark so may not be very visible.

I like that. Simple and effective. Would also work as a square patch. But the longstrokers will feel left out. *problem*

Well, I got the first design of Teeshirt back. I'm well pleased with it!! The image definition is really good.

RichardL the picture is not a heavy vinyl coating; it feels fine; I don't see it being a problem on a hot day.

I now think the old-time advert at the top of this page would look ok.

ASDA (George) are selling BSA tee shirts in grey with the bsa logo on the front for £8 on line. Great value.

How about a slogan to go with it such as:
Suffering from Atenitus? contact the BSA A7-A10 Forum for immediate relief and counselling
With the lovely timing cover image of course

I just received the second tee-shirt design. Again, it looks great. It has the same design on front and back.

PS: Please note the bright sunshine and blue sky we are currently enjoying in the UK. I hope it stays until the BSAOC Cheshire camp is over at the weekend!!
