Default Too good to be true (lthr jacket pricing)

I have been toying with the idea of buying a new jacket and one under consideration is the Furygan Vince Banshee (what a name). I generally use Sportbikeshop because their prices are good and they are close, they sell this jacket for 426. Then I found this:

http://www.tigh-a-ghlinne.co.uk/fury...bom-p-434.html

They list the price at 104 - what am I missing here?

That website is dodgier than a 4 note. The confirmation is in the fact it has no security when you come to checkout.

If something looks too good to be true then it usually is
I would very much doubt that the jacket is genuine

Agreed, read the shipping and returns notes...their understanding of English leaves something to be desired.

i would recommend Scott Leathers. British made and good quality leather not cheep nasty leather that most high street brand names are. a fair few of the IOM TT racers use them. they are based in Barnard Castle and will do alteration and full MTM for not much more.

I know their kit is indeed very good but it's a bit odd that their website says they're still closed for Chrimbo. A wander round the site found some references to new lines coming in as the 2007 season gets going...

Seeker - I agree with the others. Stay away from that website.

No contact details either, apart from email. Always a bad sign.
Interesting that they have 712 of those jackets in stock.

Yes, a reality check was needed, but I've got the message.
