I also have one M, one XL and one XXL of this print on charcoal grey long sleeve shirt, no back print on these. $15. I'll make more if enough people want them. I guess if 15 people are interested by the end of the month I can do another run.

To answer a common question, I made 5 each of small, medium and large and 3 XL of everything except the grey Nisi shirts so there are plenty to go around.

I'll be heading down to the UPS every Tuesday and Thursday so the wait won't be too long.

This is a great idea!! If you ever feel the need to do a Super Champion on dark blue in XXL, or a Rigida on light grey (the color of a weathered rim), or a 531 on steel grey, pray remember me!.

Thanks Capt. Hoping to do Super Champion soon. I'll be adding about a design a month for a while. Next up will be an Ad-Hoc frame pump decal.

frantik: yes they're silkscreened.

rookgirl, I'll look into getting some ladies tees.

Yes indeed, frantik. I prepare the art, do the separations and print them all myself. Tracing the Ad-Hoc pump logo tonight. I'll separate colors and print on Monday if all goes well.

Please get them with lycra in them! I wear an XL. The lycra makes all the difference in fit

I'm a Corel guy myself. Running versions 9 and X3. I only keep Illustrator around when I need to open Illy files that people send to me. I usually then save them as an older Illustrator version that Corel can open.

I like the 600 tri color shirt but I need 2XL Tall or a 3XL REG. I would be interested in seeing some more of your work. I am a Japanese guy when it comes to bikes and would love to see some of that made in to shirts. Do you have to worry about licensing when printing designs say for instance SunTour, SR or even Centurion.

Some of the old (50's) Campy logo would be nice. Put me down for a NISI gray, (L), when you get them made up. Thanks. BTW, bravo on the silkscreening. The heat transfer, rubberized ink ones just don't enthrall me too much.

Hey do you know anything about that bike/maker? A friend of mine had an orange frame with just a head badge that said "Butterfly" and "San Jose" if memory serves.
