A Couple Harley Tees...

Post by TimeForMemories » Sat Jul 16, 2016 2:31 pm

Jimmy, I know you know a lot about Harley stuff so I wanted to get your thoughts on value for these. Sorry for all the questions today. Was a good thrift day yesterday! :D

First one is a Willie G Harley tee from 1989 Daytona Bike Week. Thin and lightweight. Wear, some pilling and surface stains which I think will come clean if I wash it. Jerzees tagged large. Measures 25" long and 20.5" pit to pit. Saw one on eBay that sold for $28 BIN. Wasn't sure if that was a good estimate on this or it that one was price too low. Seems to me like a Harley tee from the 80s should be more.

Second is an extremely faded Harley logo tee. Also thin and lightweight. Tag is gone. Measures 29.5" long by 21" pit to pit. I can see very faded at the corner of the logo that this is a 3D Emblem one. Can't make out the date, though. Wasn't sure if the severe fading would add or subtract value wise. Back is blank.

Did the $28 one have an identical back? Sometimes the dealership helps boost it. Id list it for $75 with offers. Make sure to list that engine type...Daytona...Willie...cram all the keywords in!

Faded and or distressed can be selling points. If its 3d - try $75 with offers

Thanks again, Jimmy! I really appreciate all your info and help!

The $28 one did have the same back and was a Jerzees as well.
