- Good T-Shirt, Shrinks Quite a BitReview by Scott
- I love this t-shirt and in the short time I've had it, it's brought on a few comments. Unfortunately, this shirt shrinks quite a bit in the first wash, so be forewarned and plan to order a size up from what you normally get. (Posted on 8/13/12)
- Rollie Free T-shirtReview by Paul
- Nice quality. Conversation starter for sure. I'm going to order another, one size larger to compensate for shrinkage, however. For example, if you wear XL, get a 2XL, so when it shrinks, it'll fit just right. (Posted on 9/15/11)
- Rollie Free TeeReview by Al
- Nice quality Tee, the picture gets ammused comments from others everywhere I go (Posted on 8/29/11)
- Rollie's the manReview by GuyThatLovesShirts
- This shirt is awesome. It commemorates the amazing accomplishment of Rollie Free and his 1948 Salt Flats speed record of 150.313 mph while stripped down to a swim suit, laying flat across his Vincent HRD. The image is well inked on a high quality heavy duty white all cotton t-shirt. Highly recommended! (Posted on 8/18/11)

Some Rollie Free History
The bike in the photo is the first Vincent HRD Black Lightning, not the first Vincent HRD. The Vincent Rollie Free rode was the 900th post WW2 Vincent made, at least its sequential number is 900. It is a technically a Black Shadow (the model number having a “B” in it, F10AB/1B/900), but many consider it the “Black Lightning” prototype. Subsequent Black Lightnings have a model number with the letter “C” in it. The famous bathing suit photo wasn't published in “Life”, but a photo of Free riding flat out in his leathers taken from an airplane was published in Life. This ‘bathing suit’ photo became the most famous one, though.
Below is a photo of Rollie and the bike at Bonneville. John Edgar, the owner of the bike is on the left. The other photo is of a young man on the bike after it was converted to street use.
