1966 MV Agusta 500 Tre by Peter Hutton
Peter Hutton is the finest illustrator of motor vehicles, particularly racing machinery, and buildings. Although retired the skill is permanent and he will take commissions. If we get the artwork you will also get a t shirt. High quality prints of Peter's work are available from his website.
The MV 500 Tre in Peter's illustration is newly manufactured and built by the people who built the originals. The originals were the most successful racing motorcycles in history comfortably winning seven consecutive world titles between '66 and '71. Two strokes from Kawasaki and particularly Yamaha were MV Agusta's nemesis in the later '70s.
Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.
Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
