  • Cheap leather GP jackets...yes or no?

    Ok im looking around for some leather jackets and I know the alpinestar ones are excellent but for price it might be too steep for me.

    Came across ebay and they had some distinctive GP ones. Does look good.

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...&category=32077

    I emailed the seller of the other products he stocks and he replied:


    [i]Yes, our prices are cheap but this does not reflect on the quality, rather what the shops are charging as a markup. If you are in Sydney, you can try a size on - we are getting a small shipment next week. Otherwise, we can order one for your size. To keep our prices down we only order on demand. I have included some pictures of the jackets that we have available.

    Our prices for the GP leather jackets are $330 and $230 for cordura. Add an extra $20 for registered mail (Australia).

    We also supply gloves at cost price. An example is a summer glove made from leather/kevlar with carbon fibre knuckles and airvents cost $50 and not over $100 what the shops would charge.

    Pleasant riding

    Max.


    He send me some images of the other he stocks.

    Oh btw its cowhide leather. So what do you guys think?

                      Thanks Melkor.

                      Dang they are nice leathers. Too bad they dont have any WA distributors. Has anyone from here bought anything from them?

                        GP Jackets

                        One other thing to consider when buying a replica jacket is that you could run into trouble with the law if you look like a pack of smokes with wheels.

                        It could be deemed as tobacco advertising which is illegal and the reason why you don't see any Marlboro Ducati, Lucky Strike Suzuki or West Honda paint jobs on bikes anymore.

                          yeah it'd be worth trying to get some leathers here for us to look at.

                          I might look at getting some samples over for us to look at if enough are interested.
