  1. Hi all,

    I am currently looking to buy the Alpine Star TZ-1 leather jacket. I went to my local bike shop and found it for $750. I have dont a little surfing and found the same thing in the states for US $315. With postage and insurance I think it would still be significantly cheaper.

    Has anyone dont this? What were your experiances and which shops would you recommend?

  2. a quick search will reveal a few have done it here.
    Just be careful cos once in a while it will be held up by customs and u may have to pay an additional duty but it still works out cheaper.
