Great question. I have an original HOT 93-94 mechanics shirt and I can compare and advise of findings.

Do you just want to reproduce the HOT logo or make something else?

I have a 93 cr250 I'm building and I'd like to reproduce the 93 team graphics. I've searched online but can't find anyone that makes them so I thought I'd give it a go at making my own.

i'm a designer. the hardest thing honestly on reproducing these old graphics is finding decently high res photos online for reference. i found this one, a bit more zoomed in on the font. the larger the source, the easier it's going to be to match/trace it accurately...

actually, after looking at it closer/zoomed, it's not a font, 99% chance that was just drawn for this usage. a few clues, the 'O' in 'of' and the 'O' in 'TROY' are different. also the tightness in the letters, it's not just kerned tight, they are custom.

see if you can find a closer detail view of it somewhere, or even something that can be scanned, magazine/etc...

I dont think its a font either. I can convert to vector but need a decent photo. You can also try reaching out to whoever made the graphics.

Or buy them here: http://www.ninetwodecals.com.au/product/team-honda-of-troy-94-replica/

I thought of evo first as I've got there graphics on two bikes now ( great quality and great to work with ) but last I heard honda stopped them from using any of there logos. I had a slow week at work and my wife got a cricut printer so I thought I'd make my own. I sat down with a copy af an Erik Kehoe pic and sketched my own, my wife then scanned them and then we size them to fit on shrouds. I only had an old set in the shop so I'll have to reprint them when I order new Plastics for this bike. The red is a little off color so I'll have to search for something closer two nuclear red. Here is a picture that I used as the template, the ones I made, and my other bikes with EVO graphics. Photo
