PHANTOM BIKER WINGS PATCH
Pappy is one of my favorite designs
from around 1975. The idea for this patch came form a guy
named Mike, don't remember his last name, if I ever knew it?
He showed me photos of his Grandfather on his Indian, back in the early
1930's. "Pappy" was smoking a cigar and wearing a
leather flying cap and these very cool WWI pilot's goggles. I
was told that "Pappy's" thing was to kill the motor and coast in dead
silent, like a phantom, everywhere he went. Cool, huh?
Anyway, that was the inspiration for the design. This re-issue is full embroidered in 10 colors, measures
5-1/2" wide 2-1/2" tall on black polyfelt. Scanned from the original
artwork. The back has patch sealer applied to stabilize it. This patch has
always drawn a lot of attention, everybody seems to like this one.
