    BIKEOI Fundraiser! Action Packs for sale!

    The Scary Bikers Sewing Circle (Auckland Division) has been making action packs and selling them to raise funds for the cause. It now seems there are requests coming in from all over the country so we are making them available by mail order!

    What's in the pack? You can have any combination of the following:
    • Fluoro Vest $6
    • Iron on transfer kit (for vest, T-shirt, etc) $15
    • Yellow arm band $2
    • Yellow flag (without flag pole) $3


    How to order and pay:
    • Send me a PM telling me exactly what you want and giving me a postal address to send it to.
    • Deposit the correct amount of money into the following bank account (administered by MadDuck):
      C C Scott
      National Bank Panmure
      06-0996-0272056-000


    You do not need to cross-reference your deposit with an order - we are doing it as a matter of trust.

    Please add a small donation to cover postage and packing.

    Where does the money go?
    • The purpose of the fund is to set up a War Chest for protest actions. We will use it to cover things like printing costs, banners, more raw materials for more Action Packs, possibly some advertising...
    • If there is any money left over once we have WON it will be donated to one or more emergency service eg. rescue helicopter trusts or ambulance services.
    • The fund is being administered by MadDuck on behalf of the BIKEOI protest group that has sprung up here on KB and is not affiliated with any other group (eg BRONZ or Ulysses)


    Please feel free to ask further questions if you like, but also try to keep this thread on topic.

    More info about the different parts of the kit:

    The yellow arm bands ($2) are a stretchy/knit fabric that's almost fluoro-type yellow. We have made them in one size only (large) to go over bulky bike jackts with armoured elbows. You may need to alter the size once you get it. You can also (for no extra charge) have a slogan written on the arm band. So far we have:
    • We won't pay
    • Who's next?
    • Damn the Levies
    • BIKEOI '09
    • Nick's Myth is no ACCident

    Please specify your slogan when ordering.

    The yellow flags ($3) are made out of the same material as the arm bands and measure approx. 250mm square. (We can make larger sizes but there will be an extra cost.) Due to the prohibitive cost of postage we cannot supply flag poles with them but we suggest using a fishing rod, tent pole, electric fence standard, bamboo stem or other flexi pole. It's up to you to work out how to mount it on your bike.

    PhantasmNZ will be along shortly with photos of the vest transfer options. Each transfer kit comes with a small pic showing how to lay it out, and soon we will be adding instructions for ironing it on.

    The Scary Bikers Sewing Circle is willing to produce other kit or other combinations, and even iron the transfers onto the vests for you. Get in touch with your ideas and we will price it up for you - but expect to pay extra for any extra materials and/or work! This is a fund raiser after all!

    There are two styles of transfer currently - please advise me or Klingon if there is anything you particularly want (or need further customisation) - Depending on time pressures it may well be possible - for an appropriate donation to the cause

    Here is the main design (you may have seen this on a couple of other threads)



    I've also got this one that I did for my rush hour commutes more than the protest rides/Bikeoi



    I can do transfers on a white substrate too that will print on black/dark surafces if there is enough demand

    Thanks for the orders everyone! Our next batch will be mailed out on Thursday morning so should be with you in timefor any weekend events.

    Please remember that unless you specify otherwise, you will get your vest plus transfers ready to iron on, but YOU need to do the ironing.

    Keep the orders coming! You folks are great!

    Is there anything on the flags as standard or do we pick what we want?

    They are the velcro type (just the light-weight mesh ones rather than the heavy vinyl-type stuff)

    There is nothing on the flags - they are just fluoro yellow fabric.

    We can put the transfers on them, but that will be an extra $10 per side. We can write on them (like we do with the arm bands) but the ink soaks through so they don't look so good on the other side.

    Hmm... haven'tperfected the flags yet.... I suggest you get one anyway then tell us the best way to decorate it!

    Sure! Do you want it n one side ($13) or two sides ($23)?

    We will custom-make it on Wednesday evening and mail it to you on Thursday morning.

    Yep, we could do that Wickle... but it would still cost about $15 per flag because of the extra fabric and time.

    I have just been experimenting and the iron-on transfers look great on the flags! I reckon they are worth $23 double sided, even if I do say so myself!

    Does anyone have a file of the graphics in Phantam's post that I could print? I've got an idea of how I can put a laminated A4 page on the front of my fairing.
