Have you seen the 50th anv stamps?

Thanks for the heads up. I just checked it out. Not bad. A bit pricey, though. 30+ dollars for 10 80 yen stamps. Japan makes commemorative stamps quite often, but usually not such a high markup beyond the price of the stamps.

And I noticed they started selling cups and T shirts. Suddenly. Funny, that coincided with the cease and desist from Cafepress and Zazzle where I was trying to sell cub design stuff (owing to a lack of it).

They removed all the Honda Cub designs I added (and cleaned up) to T shirts and mugs, etc.

Thing is, the only reason I made them, was because Honda wasn't making them. I'm glad to see they now are. Though, I have to say, I wish they had more selections and better designs. But at least it's something.

Over $30 is a bit high but if I could come up with it I would be interested. Is there any way to get them and pay with Paypal?
How can I see the clothing? I have trouble finding things using Google to translate.
I bought a Japanese magazine with 50th anniversary articles in it on Ebay #380044931935 but it had not arrived after 6-7 weeks so he sent me #380075320003. The magazine showed up and a day later the brochure so I had to pay the postage on it.
Maybe there are not many other Super Cub fanatics here but I am still riding mine to work and it was 26 degrees F yesterday.

Here's the link for the T shirts and mugs:

It's right from the link you gave.

The T-shirt front image is actually a screenshot directly from their article, rather than the original advertising art. That seems pretty lame.

The back design is cool, though. They combined Cub 50 and 50th Anniversary with a nice plan image of an original cub.
But for 36 bucks?...(cough)

Still having trouble finding stuff on that page and could not get your adress to work. Can you link it on your blog or pull the grapgics off?
I did find a couple of other cool pages;

http://www.honda.co.jp/collection-hall/restore/cub_c102/vol1/index.html
http://www.honda.co.jp/supercub/helmet/index.html
It would be awesome to have access to the information they have in their restoration department.
