Once used to model a statue of the late great road racer, which now stands at the Bungalow on the Isle of Man, the outfit was worn by Dunlop during his memorable 1998 win on the island circuit.
The Lightweight race had been reduced to three laps due to atrocious weather conditions, but Dunlop still clocked more than 100mph during his first lap - before the clerk stepped in again to reduce the race to just two laps.
During his illustrious career, Ballymoney man Joey Dunlop racked up an impressive 26 wins on the Isle of Man.
It is a record that still stands, with current racer John McGuinness six wins away from matching it.
Dunlop died in 2000 during a race in Estonia. He was 48, but had still been winning events.
The outfit is being sold by Graham Budd Auctions, who have set a price of £15,000-20,000.
