csoday is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Go to H-D website and do a dealers search, You will find almost 150 dealers in Japan. Even Hiroshima and Nagasaki, you can buy most dealers shirts online
My rule is if you ain't been there, don't wear the shirt

skips69 wants to know Dino or Syn?
I left there in 95', but there was a shop that had alot of Harley's parked out front all the time. It was between Camp Foster and Camp Tori, on the main drag (can't remember the name). I never went inside, and don't know for sure if it was an actual HD dealership. I doubt it though, not very much business for them. I had heard that a former Marine opened it and did some wrenching on American bikes. Not too many Harley's on the island though, that I recall (other than those parked at this shop).

I don't remember what gate# it was off of Kadena AFB but there is a shoping district with all kinds of stores. One of those stores sold Harley shirts (it wasn't a dealer though). On the back it had:
"Harley-Davidson in Honda Land"
Okinawa,Japan

I do kinda remember a indy type of shop there, but the didn't sell T-shirts. This was May92'-93'.

bimini wants to know Dino or Syn?
I left there in Nov of 2003......There is a Harley dealership between Camp foster and Futenma. I was going to pick up a shirt, but they were around 6000 yen.( a round 55 bucks) A little steep for a shirt. I remember when I was there in 1984 when the Yen rate was 265+.

There is a place outside gate 2 of Kadena called Ryuku custom cycles, Owned by a guy named AL.......good guy, sells Harleys through the exchange. Retired Air Force, owns a bar there also. (Al's place) Shirts there are pretty cheap and thin though.

Thanks for the replies guys... But if the shirts are gonna cost him that much, I'll just have him send me pins... $55 per shirt is worse than in here in Hawaii... T's average 25-40, long sleeves 50-65...

He wanted to send me money... but if I can get something unique, then better than cash... unfortunately, my job doenst allow me to travel awhole lot... so I help people, they help me... got shirts from various dealers in different locations... including seoul,
Korea... (dealership owner rode my Fatboy on his last visit)
