An original British motorcyclists cut-off T Shirt dating from the 1970s.
This shirt belonged to Mick Hemmings who was a well known motorcycle racer and renowned bike builder best known for his work on Nortons and Triumphs. He had this along with two others made during the 1970s. The top is made from a white coloured cotton jersey and features a contrasting red back and sleeves as well as blue neckband and cuffs. The front of the shirt features typical period graphics including the Triumph and Norton logos and the words 'Bike British' above a design featuring the Union Jack colours and an arrow. 'Mick Hemmings Northampton England' is below this.
The shirt will suit around a 36" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat it measures -
Chest - 17 1/2"
Shoulders - 16 1/2"
Length - 24"
The shirt is in well worn condition with plenty of signs of wear and use along with some staining. There are two rips around the collar and top seam which are illustrated in the pictures. This would probably be better suited to being a reference item or used for display only. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item which has flaws commensurate with age.
This shirt couldn't be any more 70s in cut and the graphics are also so of the time. A great piece of motorcycle history!
