1991 Holoubek Harley Eagle Flag No. "1" T-Shirt

Post by mrs_stout » Sun Sep 02, 2012 8:45 pm

Hi -- I came across this t-shirt a couple of days ago, washed it and it is in really amazing shape, almost no fading of the black fabric. Pit-to-pit is about 22.5" (after washing & drying). Real? Value, if so? Thanks!

Real for sure.

Holoubek Inc. designs and develops printed apparel such as t-shirts, fleece, and casual apparel products for Harley-Davidson dealers and riders. Holoubek was founded in 1962 and is headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

I don't think it would bring in a fortune - although typically the USA 1 and eagle imagery are popular. Maybe $15-40 range? Might get some action just based on the size and that it's 20 years old as all the 80s harley stuff wouldn't actually fit most guys who ride Harleys.

Thanks! I didn't think it would bring a mint, but it's in really fantastic condition, like a shade under new

Nice find. That's an awesome shirt. Like he said, big sizes do move. I had a newer unofficial XXXL Harley/Indian dealership shirt from Amsterdam getting fought over on ebay once. I didn't think it would be too desirable and started it at like 10 dollars. I think I got around 25 bucks for it.

Thanks, Ryan! Not a bad profit if you didn't pay much for it. I just came across 2 VERY cool Harley tees: a 2000 one from South Africa (below) and another one from I think 1997 Kuwait (no photos yet).

I just found these two. From Bike Week '95 and '91. The '95 is marked as a 4XL!!! The '91 is marked 3XL and is one of the "3D" emblem ones. Looking forward to seeing how much they'll fetch.

Keep us posted when they do sell. I come across all manner of bike t-shirts in my area. Funny, not as many Harley t-shirts as you'd think considering I live less than 2 miles from a large Harley dealership.
