Vintage 70s? 80s? Thermal Harley Davidson shirt

Post by Marbles » Wed Apr 10, 2013 1:30 am

Hi,
Back again. I was wondering if this shirt is ebay worthy? It feels super thin. I have no way to date it. Looks like something was written but has faded out. It does have a harley tag. Whats it worth? Cheers

Maybe 80s....90s even? I don't think Harley had their own tags until the 80s.

Auction it - it almost has a Ed Hardy style - could be some Harley/Hardy fan out there.

I meant to say that it doesn't have a Harley tag. So does that mean its a bootleg?

Oh. No I doubt it.

"After getting out of the Yamaha business in 1986, Buddy changed the name of our business to Appleton Harley-Davidson because he was totally committed to only carry the Harley-Davidson® brand motorcycles. The Buell® brand was added in 1998."

Earliest possible is 86 but probably more modern.

Oh cool. It looks like a 80s guy with the helmet. The tag was white and barely attached. It pulled off trying to read what was on it. Turns out not much. Just toss the tag? It looks like a dried up piece of Kleenex. Also, Worth listing? Selling 20$ tees is not really my bag. Cheers...

Yeah once the tag is detached...not much point in keeping it.

One similar got $33. Seems worthwhile to me:
