    Folks, I mentioned in a thread about my project R75/5 I started a few days ago that I designed some art for my friends Wes and Rachel Burden, who own and operate Apex Cycle Shop here in Ellijay, Georgia. After much asking in that thread I decided to start a vendors thread so y'all can contact Wes and get hooked up with the wares, and my own restoration thread won't get booted for being spam :D .

    Just to be clear, I am not personally selling this stuff. This is my good friend's shop. He knows I've started this thread so feel free to tell him you saw the shirts on Flux's ADV thread. They specialize in restoration and maintenance of vintage BMWs amongst other things. If you own one of these bikes and ever have questions, need parts, or need service please contact them. Wes is super-meticulous and is hands down the best wrench I've ever worked with.

    For the first design, we went with the classic R75/5 "toaster" bike. I hand-drew these images and 99% of the logo they are using now. These are high quality American Apparel t-shirts. They fit a bit more on the athletic side. So order up if you are in between sizes. Bike images are on the back. Logo on the front left breast. Shirts are $15 plus USPS flat rate shipping.

    The 2nd image is Rachel's bike, a 1954 R51/3 that was passed onto her from her mentor who is now riding the curvy roads in the sky. We call this one the 'Ghost Bike'.

    They also got some oil rags done with their toaster-inspired logo. $2.00.

    And lastly, they did porcelain camp mugs with their logo, but I can't find mine for some reason. $12 for these. I'll post a pic when I can.


    I'll post the original art in a few minutes, too, since these pics don't really show the detail in the designs. :deal

    Original toaster art. Drew in ink, in black and white, and we reversed it to put it on a black shirt.

    Great.

    Coupla inevitable questions: do they prefer call-in or eMail orders? Payment by PayPal or Visa/MC/AmEx?

    Thanks guys! Bill I *think* they are set up on credit cards but I know for a fact he uses Paypal. Email or phone, either way is fine. They are working on an e-commerce site as I type this, too.

    Keep in mind when you call, if he doesn't answer straight away, his arms might be elbow deep into a project and its a mom n pop shop.

    Nice art, Flux :clap. A friend of mine had some American Apparel t's made for an event this Fall - they are very good quality. :thumb. Going to grab one and maybe a rag or two.

    I've been to this shop and can attest to the quality of their work. Might need to go by an visit just to see what's on the work stand and buy a shirt. Nice oil rag too.
