Okay, being that the reference article on King Motorsports’ website is nearly a decade old, I figured now would be a good time to update that “Fakespotting” piece. As we are getting older, Mugen products seem to be going up in price with no signs of slowing down. Mugen stuff has gone from quality aftermarket parts for Honda enthusiasts to full-on collector’s items now. With collectors driving the prices up as the parts are becoming more scarce, more counterfeiters are trying to cash in by selling their own versions. This is done in hopes of fooling potential buyers or people who are none-the-wiser. Sure, these types of parts have been out in the market for years but counterfeiters are getting better with their replicas. There has recently been an influx of counterfeit parts in Japan too and many of the enthusiasts over there are getting fooled because they haven’t been as exposed to all these copies like we have here in North America. Being that I have my finger on the pulse in both countries, maybe this will help everyone.
