Gary Edwards creates a ‘lightness of being’ SXR

sxr edwards right profile th
Thanks, Phil for all the parts and help with this project. As I mentioned to you on the phone this bike weighs 69 pounds less than the original 1989 Sportster using lots of carbon fiber and aluminum. And there are still items that can be lightened. Attached is a list of features so others can plan accordingly. I'm a little bit biased, but I think this one is better than the UK one featured on your website.

The best flat-track t-shirt ever!

XR750TshirtPerfect shirt for flat trackers to wear at motorcycle gatherings. It’s all about the first 1970 XR750--a proper right side view with all the basic specs in text box. The orange sleeves are so right for the two-color XR imprint design and set the shirt apart from all the other white ones in the world (or badassed black ones with skulls!).

xr750-shirt-photoThe design is orange and black on an Augusta 50% cotton/50% polyester shirt with orange raglan sleeves and orange collar. I'm stocking these in only Large and XL because, well, we're gettin' older aren't we? I'm making other sizes in small batches.
