New xs650chopper T-shirts in – ready to ship!

The shirt is a tribute to the XS650 engine. I had GM, a badass designer do a multicolored illustration of the xs650 power plant. It’s a work of art, its kind of 70s psychedelic inspired with tons of detail. The idea was to have the background swirling representing being hypnotized by the sound of the XS motor. I think it turned out really nice. I hope you guys dig it.

This T-shirt is –5.5 oz 100% Cotton Tubular Jersey, Double-needle bottom hem and sleeves, and preshrunk to minimize shrinkage. We have M-L-XL- and some XXL this time too…

  9. ghostshadow says:

    Man I love this and I’d love to have one, but I hate that the design is on the back 🙁 – I usually wear an open dickies shirt on top of my t-shirts so front graphics are always preferable. That’s sad 🙁 I almost bout one too!

  10. Hugh says:

    Ordered one! Maybe I’ll win some of my own parts – haha…

  11. Todd from Australia says:

    G’day Ted, Great looking shirt and have to say i love the site and get a heap of insoiration from the huge range of bikes peole submit…mine will come eventually.

    How much am I looking at for postage to Sydney australia for 1 T shirt please Ted.

    Stay true, Todd

  12. Ted says:

    @ Todd – Postage to Sydney is $3.00 just Click on “ship outside US” at checkout. Thanks man..

    @ ghostshadow – The graphic almost ended up on the front but the graphic is so detailed I thought it looked a lot better on the back. Put some variety in your wardrobe and try a graphic on the back- guarantee you’ll dig the shirt.

    @ Hugh – Thanks!

  13. Piute says:

    I believe big graphic belong on the back,there hot,don’t breath,were as the wind can go thru to cool ya ,front pocket would be really nice,but I know gets into THEE pocket,Get what you pay for THX….Piute

  14. tadd442 says:

    Ted…seems like a bunch of us fatties would make it worth while for you to make some 3XL’s….any chance of that happening? I for one, wouldn’t mind waiting a bit for it. Also, I’d even pay a bit more if you could resurrect last years design for “Us gifted with girth”.

    Show some love to the gravitationally challenged!

  26. Mdfisher21 says:

    This is the first time I’ve won anything, and all I had to do was order a sweet shirt…I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I’m jacked! I was so mad the first shirt style available on the site sold out a ways back…I made sure I got one early this time, I suggest you all do the same.

    Thanks for all your posts…they have been unbelievably helpful during my build. Slow but sure it’s coming along. Cannot wait to post the final result…whenever that will be!

    BTW…I bet you could sell a ton of shirts if you also offered a “reprint” of the previous shirt design. You would get the newbs like me, and all the other guys who wore theirs out! Love that sort of “rat fink” style logo it had!

  27. Shane Ryans says:

    That is a really cool design. Way to go.

  30. jGrubbs says:

    The shirt is pretty sick! It reminds me a lot of the shirts metal bands put out these days that I have put up in my closet… Well done by the designer!

  31. Ted says:

    @ jGrubbs – Thanks, actually I worked with a designer that does a lot of T-shirts for metal bands – good call. I was really blown away at the amount of detail he was able to get in the motor.
