    I don’t know too many bikers that will pay $135 for a t-shirt.

    I got to agree I am unaware of anyone who would pay even $ 60 for a t shirt much less $135. I can see the invertory sitting a long time at that lofty price.

    They have a 3,500.00 dollar biker jacket on their website!

    I am sure there are biker that would pay for the shirts and even the jacket…
    not likely the HD crowd though.

    Maybe this crowd:

    Maybe they left the decimal points out. All of those prices are about 10x what they should be.

    Heck if I’m going to pay those prices I’ll buy real antique M/C clothes on EBay.

    Funny thing is, they’re sold out of many sizes and can’t keep most of the items in stock. Clearly someone is buying them.

    Great looking stuff, yes is pricey but they will sell, they’re not going after the typical HD buyer.
