T-shirts &
ideal gifts for

classic bikers

Look good and feel great (and young) in this cool clobber


Gift T-shirts | Motorcycle T-shirts | Biker T-shirts | Printed T-shirts



Most biker T-shirts on the market are simply not worth the asking price. We know that to be true because in the course of our motorcycling travels we pick up quite a few of them and we study them closely. We have to. We're in competition, and we want to make sure that the tees and gifts we sell are stylish, nicely made, long lasting and realistically mixed-recycling-tshirtpriced.


But it goes beyond that. We don't want to sell T-shirts that simply cover your chest. Uh huh. We don't want "lazy" designs splashed on cheap cotton. And we certainly don't want T-shirts that, in the first wash, shrink to half their size. And fade to nothing. And/or unravel.


Instead, we want to sell classy T-shirts that make us ... well, make us feel the way we used to feel—meaning young, and alive, and maybe just a little hip too. But hey, can a T-shirt really do all that? Wind back the clock? Put some black back into our beards? And elsewhere? Well not on its own, perhaps. Instead, it's part of the wider mix. Meaning outlook. Attitude. Positivity. Drive. Energy, and all that good esoteric stuff. You know the drill.


But if you want to recover at least a little of that old magic, you have to make the effort. You have to reconnect with the guy, or girl, you used to be. In short, you have to think young, act young, and be young—at heart if nowhere else. So give it a try. Check our cool T-shirt collection and think young thoughts. It's either that, or total and unconditional surrender.


Hint: Never surrender.

Great gift T-shirts for bikers. They'll love you for it...




Biker T-shirtThis the second edition of these Bobber T-shirts, and they're different from edition one which were printed on grey. Why the change? Well, we received numerous email enquiries asking if we had these tees on black. So eventually we relented and changed the colour (ya gotta keep the customer satisfied, are we right?). Anyway, these shirts sell fast. The new batch is here, but they won't last long. To get yours while it's going, click on the image or the button below. You never know when the production fairy will call it a day...

World class motorcycle firms deserve a world class T-shirt


BSA motorcycle T-shirtBSA


T-shirt - £15.99




Here in the UK we've got a tradition of talking in highly disparaging ways about our engineering companies. Why? We don't know. Maybe it's all British Leyland's fault thanks to all those wonderful rust-buckets produced in the industrially challenged 1970s. Or maybe it's simply that famous British irony coupled with our twisted sense of humour. Or maybe we've just got very short and very selective memories.


But the fact is, Britain has produced some of the greatest engineering companies in the world; firms that, in their heyday, were more than a match for anything on the planet. And even now, British engineers are highly valued in everything from motor engineering to aircraft engineering to oil drilling to rocket science.


BSA was unquestionably one of Britain's greatest engineering companies? The firm's roots begin in 1861. The company, a mixture of home grown and imported talent produced everything from guns to bicycles to cars to aircraft to munitions to machine tools.


But it's BSA motorcycles that particularly interest us, hence this T-shirt. We figure that we don't need to explain it any further, and we make no apologies for incorporating the union jack in the design. Yes, you can take jingoism too far. But a gentle flutter of the colours is no great sin either.

BSA motorcycle T-shirt - Rocket Gold StarThese tees are in production right now with delivery expected in just a few days. The price is £15.99 plus P&P. You can order yours right now, and by doing so you can help us rationalise production and get the right sizes printed in the right numbers.


How to buy?


Simple. Click on the T-shirt to the left, or on the T-shirt design immediately above and you'll land on the appropriate page. You can pay via PayPal with a credit or debit card. It's simple, it's safe, and we'll look after you. 


Here at Sump we ride BSAs too, and we wear the products we produce. Any problems, fire off an email and we'll fix it to your satisfaction.


Good enough?

"These days
I'm heavily into collecting motorcycle memorabilia. Old spark plugs boxes. Tank badges. Speedometers. Vintage pistons. Tools. Sales literature. Manuals. Anything. My life revolves around the stuff that I'm accumulating from autojumbles, or from small ads, or from online auction sites. My dad reckons I'll grow out of it, but it seems to me that I'm growing more and more into it. It's one of life's more enjoyable problems.


I collect T-shirts too, particularly tees from the 1960s and 1970s. And not just motorcycle tees, but hot rod shirts, surfing shirts, and anything with The Beach Boys on it. This Sump T-shirt (main image, left) is one of four or five that I've got, and these days it's the one I'm most likely to wear. It's simple. Cool. Instantly recognisable. And I've got a thing about motorcycle goggles which is why there's 19 vintage pairs in my collection.


We call this Sump T-shirt the
Type 2 design. It's simplified and doesn't have the goggle straps as seen on the earlier Type 1. I've got both shirts and can't decide which one I prefer. It changes from day to day, or from mirror to mirror.


We sell either type for just £14.99. But take care; they're highly addictive. Meanwhile, check out the other tees in the Sump collection. When you decide which one's right for you, place your order and we'll get it to you as fast as the postman can run. Good enough?"

If you've recently bought a Sump T-shirt, a book, a motorcycle lock, a framed print, a tin wall sign or whatever, and if your order hasn't arrived, you might want to check your email spam box. We regularly find that customers have failed to give the information we need to process the order (size, full address, style, colour, etc).


If there's a query, we make three attempts to contact buyers, and if we get no reply, we cancel the order and return any payment. But that can lead to disappointment, especially if the item is a gift for someone. So if you haven't heard from us within 24 hours of placing your order, please check your spam box, or contact us again.
