Suzuki launch Barry Sheene clothing line
Suzuki have announced a new special line of clothing, launched in honour of the legendary Barry Sheene, who won the 500cc motorcycle grand prix roadracing world championship in 1976 and 1977. 'The Sheene clothing line offers a casual and fashionable line-up that would not be out of place in major high street retailers,' says a press note from Suzuki.
The clothing line, with its Texaco Heron Suzuki colours with which Sheene won both his 500cc world championships in the 1970s, has been designed in memory of the golden age of motorcycle roadracing. The line-up comprises of a tshirt and hoodie, each featuring Sheene's racing number '7', team logos and sponsors.
'We are really pleased to present these stunning Sheene items, especially after the success of the 2012 range we launched earlier in the year. Both items look great in the vintage racing colours of the 70s - we really hope that Barry's loyal fans will love them just as much as we do and at the same time help the Clic Sargent cause,' says Emma Gibbon at Suzuki GB.
The Sheene t-shirt is priced at £35.00 and the hoodie at £65.00. 10% of the profits made from each item will go to the Clic Sargent Cancer Charity, which was Barry Sheene's chosen charity. The items can be bought online or through any authorised Suzuki dealer. More information available on Suzuki's official website.
