Terry Stemmler, Obsessed with Cleanliness

Stemmler_SXR-2When I got these photos of Terry’s 2002 883 SXR I was struck instantly with its polished, clean look. He is more fastidious than I am. Terry chose to keep the spoked wheels, the 16” rear wheel and the two-into-one pipe he already had on the bike.

In a note he sent with his photos he said,

Getting rave reviews on this end. Haven’t had it to a bike night but it gets an audience at the gas pump!

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.
