Way back before the word “Mountain Bike” was even a thing, long time Singletrack buddy Charlie Kelly started to organise the first mountain bike races. Being a big guy with a big mouth he promoted the races really well with some awesome artwork.
Printed on a white Gildan heavy cotton t-shirt. The artwork on each poster was created by Pete (Fullblast) Barrett. The t-shirt has a full front print of this iconic poster.
Despite Charlie starting the first race, first magazine, and first mountain bike company (with Gary Fisher), the spoils of what became a megabuck industry passed him by. Sales of these shirts help Charlie carry on being Charlie. And that is a good thing as he is currently archiving a colossal collection of mountain bike history, whilst also guiding people around the Marin Mountain Bike Museum.
Sizing is normal T-shirt sizing.
