Have you tried to buy a Honda T-Shirt recently? It’s OK if all you want is a CBRVFRCBF modern thingy.
I have a CB500/4 that is 38 years old (1972):
I have been feeling a bit creative recently so spent an enormous amount of time working on a photo of the 500/4 logo from my bike.
I made it into a t-shirt but it only lasted about 24 hours before I received the following email:

I can’t imagine how the corporate machine at Honda would bother too much about a logo that appeared for a scant 2 years, 38 years ago!
So. I’ve quit Z*****.
a) have any idea on the length of copyright on stuff like this?
b) know where I can buy a kosher 500/4 t-shirt?
c) make this stuff and want to “help”?
