Public goes bananas over Herbie’s onesie thumbnailJoey’s youngest daughter Joanne posted photos of her nine-week-old son Herbie wearing the special edition sleep suit.

SIXTEEN years after his untimely death in Estonia, the love for road racing legend Joey Dunlop has not faltered, as fans get 'revved up' for replica Honda Leather onesies.
Joey's youngest daughter Joanne posted photos of her nine-week-old son Herbie wearing the special edition sleep suit.
Joanne said: "Zhoodz, the company who makes them contacted me first to see if it was OK to make them but I passed them on to mummy.
“She was more than happy to give her blessing because she thought they were great.
“She asked them if they would make one for Herbie which they did. I absolutely love it! Herbie and the iconic helmet.
“It's still a bit big for him yet but he looks so cute in it. I would actually love one for myself.
“The response to it has been unbelievable, the number of private messages I've had from people asking if it was possible to get replica adult onesies is crazy.
“As far as I know they are now making them in adult sizes so I reckon they'll be inundated with orders.
“Daddy always wanted grandchildren and Herbie is his eighth. I think he would have loved to see him in his replica leathers."
Creator of the famous onesie, Steve Cooper said orders are keeping him 'flat out' over Christmas and well into the new year.
He said: "I'd seen a conversation on our Facebook wall regards our baby race and sleep suit designs and then Linda messaged me asking me to contact her.
