I am interested in buying this motorhead shirt from this seller... rainbowgasoline. however, I have read on these very forums that some of his shirts are counterfeit. could someone please tell me if this one is an original or not.

Rainbow sells primarily real t-shirts - he just likes to supplement his inventory and income with repros.

You just never know - and have to decide if it's good to do business with someone who operates in such a manner.

That one is a 100% the real deal. You can tell just by looking at it. Bootleggers can't replicate that kind of patina as much as they try.

But I agree with Jimmy.

Mr. Gasoline doesn't have the greatest reputation.
