Does anyone remember seeing this poster in the 1960's? I suspect it was printed in Japan. No mention of Rockford Motors.

Paul, I thought I'd read somewhere on the site that the "Jet Lube" term (and decals) were used for the oil injection system in markets outside of the U.S. Hopefully, someone with more knowledge on the subject can either confirm this or set the record straight.

Either way, I just wish there had been more items like this done for the GTO.  :(

I can confirm that as I still have the original sticker on my 90 Deluxe. It is a silver foil type and attached to the oil tank.

Hi, Moonpup,

Yes, the UK market 90s and 350s didn't use the silver "Oil Injection" stickers, but had a "Jet Lube" sticker on the oil tank instead. Strangely, UK market 175s had the US-type "Oil Injection" sticker on the oil tank.

If anyone is looking for a "Jet Lube" sticker, "Sunrise Graphics" over here in the UK have replicas - the original stickers have long been unavailable.

Thanks guys for confirming what I thought I'd read here.

FYI, the poster didn't generate any bids..... wonder if they'll relist it with a lower starting point or maybe even a "buy it now" ? (still wishing it wasn't missing a piece of the lower corner though.)

If you want a Bridgestone t shirt, one alternative is to make your own. 

It's really quite surprising what you can do with an inkjet printer and an iron-on transfer sheet.  Anything you have on your PC that you can print, you can put on a shirt.

The actual picture on the shirt is pretty good, the photo not so much, but you get the idea.

Thanks for the heads-up BS Mechanic, never would have thought of that. Opens up all sorts of possibilities!

Fellow member Kataro has posted these vintage Bridgestone factory overalls for auction on eBay. They don't have the typical Bridgestone motorcycle logo ( scary monster  ;D ), instead incorporating the BS tire company logo. Yet if they were the same type used in the motorcycle plant, they would indeed make for a nice addition to someones memorabilia collection.

Wonder what it says on the back?  8)

Hi, Moonpup,

That question's easily answered. Katakana characters translate as  BU-RI-JI-SU-TO-N. Say it quickly and it comes out as BRIDGESTONE. You can see those same characters on factory parts packaging.

Thank you for clearing that up Graham..... I'd have preferred it say "350 GTO" instead, but I guess you can't have everything.   :o   ;D
