By | General Posts | No Comments

 

Indian Motorcycle will celebrate its heritage with the debut of a new Indian Motorcycle Experience Truck showcasing the incredible lineage of Indian Motorcycles. Living history will visit the Indian Motorcycle display when former racers and famed “Indian Wrecking Crew” members Bill Tuman and Bobby Hill visit on Tuesday August 7th. Celebrating his induction to the AMA Hall of Fame, Ed Kretz Jr., who followed in his famous father Ed “Iron Man” Kretz’s footsteps by racing motorcycles, will appear in the Indian Motorcycle display on Wednesday August 8th.
Come to the Indian Motorcycle Experience at 3rd and Lazelle on Friday August 10th and hear how Indian Motorcycle helped Mike Wolfe, creator and host of ‘American Pickers’ on HISTORY, to get his start as a picker, get an autograph or a picture, or even bring your vintage Indian bike or memorabilia for a chance to spend some quality time with Mike and swap Indian stories.

Made-In America Casual Wear

RSD’s new casual collection is motorcycle culture-inspired clothing at it’s finest. Perhaps better known for their hardparts, the creative team at Roland Sands Design has built a comprehensive line of soft goods. The RSD casual wear includes hats, tees, thermals and hoodies.

“Our soft goods line is a collective of ideas and culture drawn from the two wheel industry,” explains racer-turned designer Roland Sands. “The crew at RSD really enjoys all types of motorcycles, so we’ve tried to represent that with our graphics. The fit and finish is also something very important to us, so you’ll find the extra little details that make the piece comfortable and unique to RSD.”

The T-shirts start with either 145-gram 100% cotton or a 135-gram 50/50 cotton/poly blend in tasteful shades of charcoal, brown, navy, sand, red and Kelly green with subtle discharge/print graphics. The thermals are constructed from a 5.2-ounce 50/50 combed ringspun blend for added comfort. Another great feature is the fact that most of the RSD casual wear is made in America.

Two styles of hoodies are built from different materials. The “Flag” version begins with a basic 8.5-ounce 80/20 cotton/ply blend with a fleece interior and zippered front closure. The “Eagle” hoodie combines a 100% cotton exterior with a 5.5-ounce sherpa poly fleece liner. Both styles get the traditional drawstring hoods.

Topping of the casual wear collection are a couple mesh Trucker’s hats, 5-panel flexfit ball caps and even the RSD Driver’s cap.  

This comprehensive array of T-shirts, hats, thermals and hoodies helps augment RSD’s leather jackets, wool and waxed cotton riding gear. The 2012 RSD apparel line has something for every enthusiast. “The RSD line is riding gear built with a parallel of fashion and function,” concludes Sands. “Our favorite shirts can now be yours.”
