New Departure! - Shirt

New Departure! - Shirt

This design is showing a 1930’s era man wearing old style clothing holding up one of the most famous bicycle and motorcycle hubs: The New Departure Coaster Brake Hub. This is a beautiful shirt…something for you to proudly wear while pedaling around on your New Departure equipped Schwinn, Elgin, Columbia, or Whizzer or JC Higgins. New Departure coaster brake hubs were also used on some early motorcycles built in the teens and earlier. In 1898 the New Departure Company designed a device that would allow a bicycle rider to “coast” while allowing the pedals to remain stationary. Well that has become bicycling as we know it! Wear this proudly at you next vintage ride or meet!! (Black shirt with antique ivory white ink.)
