    Question Belstaff?

    Hey does anybody remember a post recently about some eBay guy selling Belstaff stuff for ridiculously low prices? I could swear it was somewhere in our fine forums but I can't for the life of me find it (search didn't help either).

    Don't know about EBay

    But Grand Rapids BMW was blowing out some Belstaff Spitfire coats. They were originally 420 bucks. I bought one in July for 225 and now they are selling them for $160
    They told me the distributor was dropping the line and making them great deals.
    They also have frontier pants for 130 and a couple kinds of gloves. First Gear Siroco coats are 200.

    BTW - I am very happy with my Spitfire coat. Well ventilated and keeps water out very well. With the liner zipped in, I have used it down to 22 degrees with no fairing. Size runs a little small, get one larger than you think you need.

    I was told the same thing that Cliffy was, that the distributor was dropping the line and who knows if someone else would pick it up. Apparently, while the consumer price is similar between Belstaff and others, the retail profit margin is a LOT slimmer on the Belstaff than, say, a FirstGear or Joe Rocket.

    My point is, that if you have your heart set on a Belstaff, you might just want to buy it. I looked around and finally decided the Belstaff Discovery was the right jacket for me. The ones available on e-bay for cheap were the wrong size and the baby-poop-yellow color. All of the super low prices I found on the net were already sold out. I ended up buying it from British Motorcycle Gear . They weren't super cheap, but they had the size and color I wanted in stock and were very helpful and quick. I didn't find the jacket in stock and more than $10 cheaper anywhere else.

    Unhappy

    Thanks Mike. I didn't like that yellow either. While I hate having to kiss that deal goodbye, I am consoled by the fact that a clubmate of mine bought the Pioneer pants from that eBay guy then sold them to me for $100, NEW. So if I wind up with the full suit I'm still ahead.
