Brothers Bernie and Lawrence Nicholson founded Nicholson Bros. Motorcycles in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1933. If you think opening a motorcycle shop during the great depression in a town with few people and fewer motorcycles would end in certain failure, you would be wrong. The brothers imported bikes and support parts for numerous makes to sell from their shop, but also tried their hand at creating a mail order catalog. Given their central location, they were not only able to ship quickly throughout Canada, but also the U.S., and their business took off. While servicing and repairing bikes in their shop, Bernie’s knack for understanding, and explaining, the way motors worked became increasingly clear, and Lawrence encouraged him to put pen to paper and write a repair manual. In 1942, the first edition of ‘Modern Motorcycle Mechanics and Speed Tuning’ was published, and was a first of its kind manual that allowed anyone to work on their motorcycles with ease. The manual was so well written and illustrated, that it’s still considered the single best repair manual for these classic bikes today.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
