Oil-smeared and usually in search of the right screw or the right sealing ring, you're proud of the fact that your ride is not bought, but assembled with your own hands. Built not bought! The road may be rough and every step forward hard fought, but in the end every quarter mile will feel twice as sacred. Because you believe in almighty acceleration, blessed traction and divine Kustom Kulture. In this sense: "As I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I can keep. But if I spin and begin to slide, please dear god, protect my sweet ride. Amen!"

50s racing sweater with racy hotrod embroidery.

The racing sweater is densely knitted and particularly voluminous. Inspired by the classic racing club sweaters of the late 1940s and early 1950s, the neckline features a zipper that can be used to transform the collar into a roll neck. The cuffs on the sleeves are extra long and can be rolled up or worn almost like gloves - especially by using the opening provided for the thumb. The block stripes on the sleeves are in contrasting beige. The back features intricate embroidery, which is perfectly complemented by the small embroidery on the front. Simply a cool sweater for real men - once you've worn it, you won't want to take it off...

History of the racing sweater:
Racing sweaters originated in the 1920s and were popular well into the 1950s. The first sweaters had wide collars, very high knitted cuffs up to the waist and a thumb stitch on the sleeves. The collar was closed with a zipper that ended at chest height so that the entire neck could be covered. This warm cut was particularly suitable for motorcycle races, which gave the racing sweaters their name. The AMA (American Motocyclist Association) was already organizing so-called "gipsy runs" in the interwar period. These were various competitions, freestyle disciplines or hill climbs. The racing sweaters, which were available in a wide range of colors at the time, served as a platform for clubs, sponsors or companies to present themselves with their logos on the sweaters. The birth of the Racing Club Sweater! Ultimately, racing sweaters became very popular with various clubs in the post-war period. To clearly identify their affiliation, each member had a sweater with their name on the front and the club logo on the back.
