We had numerous requests to make shirts in different colors,
some people just didn't like the  Graphite and wanted lighter colors.  So here you go . . .  

From Left to right: original Graphite with Old Gold (only 4 shirts left small and medium only), Willow with Metallic Old Gold, Ice Blue with Pewter, Sandstone with Bronze, Lotus Blossom Pink with Pewter.

Colors are more saturated in person, the flash washed out the colors a bit.
 We're working on new photos.

We designed the distressed artwork, colors, and material selection of these shirts to appear as if they
were obtained as free SWAG from a bike show during the 1980s and have been worn often since then.  
They are new vintage. 

Please check order form for available sizes and colors.
Shirts usually ship the same or next day that you order them as long as it's not a Sunday or holiday.  I'll send you a confirmation of your order if it won't ship within 24 hours or so. Otherwise, PayPal will send a tracking notice when it ships.  I take care of all that correspondence personally, I haven't had the desire to automate it yet, so if  it takes a day or two to hear from me please don't worry.  Almost every order ships the same or next day that it is received.

These shirts make a great gift!

If you're thinking about purchasing a shirt, now is the time to act, before you're favorite color is gone.  The original Graphite with Old Gold depleted quickly and we anticipate the same with these new colors.

We're pleased to offer our exclusive limited-editionretro-styled Vintage LOTUS Bicycle T-Shirts, the perfect accessory to display your enthusiasm for vintage Lotus bicycles. We've had many requests for a Vintage LOTUS Bicycle shirt, but it took us quite some time to design something WE would be proud to wear.  The shirt is designed to be somewhat understated.

We used the 1986 and up Lotus down tube decal and the most frequently used head tube badge from the vintage Lotus model line as our inspiration. We carefully reproduced every detail in our own custom design which was then professionally silk screen printed on shirts using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. There is even a Lotus flower on the right sleeve!

This is real old-fashioned silk screen printing, NOT a vinyl iron-on or a digital print.  This is a high-quality silk screen INK print just like you'd find on a shirt from the 1980s.  

Our 100% pre-shrunk ringspun cotton Chouinard Brand Comfort Color shirts are silk screen printed in the USA. These are a premium quality shirt, heavyweight, and very soft.  The shirts are pigment dyed, meaning the dye was applied after the garment was sewn together, this adds a slightly more organic and worn look to the shirt.  This premium finish will continue to age as it's washed adding to the vintage look.

The color of our first shirt is called Graphite, which is dark grey, to simulate a faded black.  To our eyes the shirt looks dark grey with a slight tint of blue depending on the lighting.  The design is an dull gold color with some shading to give a two-tone effect. We've tried our best to photograph the shirt but the image on your device may vary.  The shirt looks much, much nicer in person than in the photographs.  Your satisfaction is guaranteed or you can send the shirt back and we will refund the purchase price (minus shipping).

Please note that there is no advertising on this item, no .com, no company names, and no contact information. It's just a shirt celebrating all Vintage Lotus Bicycles, it's not meant to be an advertisement for this website.

These custom shirts are very limited so please don't delay if you'd like to own one.  

Special introductory price is only $19.95 per shirt
 plus $3.99 to help with shipping costs (continental USA).

Believe us, that price is a steal.

Own something unique, the only place in the world where you can find a Lotus bicycle t-shirt is right here.

Retail price for a shirt of this quality, exclusivity, and unique design could easily cost $50.00 or more.

This isn't just any old cheap promotional t-shirt.  
Our Vintage Lotus Bicycles garment is a premium quality shirt, silk screened with a custom design, in a limited edition.
 Heck, it cost $2.00 a shirt just to put the lotus flower on the sleeve.  
Plus you get a cool button and some stickers.

The shirt is designed to look old, it's designed to look loved.  It's an understated work of art that, of course, not everyone will appreciate.  But those that get it, will get it, and when they are gone they are gone.  

Did you ever own a t-shirt that gets all pilly when you wash it and the stitching feels like it was sewn with thread made of cactus needles?  That is NOT this shirt.  Our shirt fabric is succulent, and comfortable, and it begs to be worn.  We've washed ours dozens of times and they still look great and feel great.

Buy a shirt, you'll love it and it helps us keep the site running.

If you'd like to purchase this shirt on Amazon (without the Vintage Lotus design) they are available for $14.48.  Note the 4.5 star rating.  This is the exact shirt we used for the Vintage Lotus Bicycles shirt, as you can see it's a high-quality garment, you can often find cheap shirts for printing for under $3.00.  Of course, that $14.48 doesn't account for any printing or design costs and that doesn't come cheap.

The photo below best represents the color of the Graphite shirt and the color of the design. The design color tends to look yellow when photographed in the sun or with a flash.  The photo below uses natural lighting.

The color of the design is a faded-mustardy-gold color.  We picked it on purpose so that it looked aged.  It's not supposed to be pretty and flashy, it's supposed to be a survivor.

The shirts also come with a pair of 2.5 inch gold foil Vintage Lotus Bicycle stickers and a custom Lotus flower 1.25 inch pinback button.  For just $3.00 more we'll send you a complete set of four LOTUS pins, each pin represents a different LOTUS head tube badge design. Just choose your package below.
