~I also recommend Leatherup and JaminLeather.
Just ask them they will send you a cataloge. Good leather is important that's for sure. I have used both of those companies and so have many other friends.Of course ebay is great and your local dealership. What I wondered one day looking around...was what's the BEST type of leather? Goat, buffalo, cow? I found some terribly expensive stuff out there! Especially in Wyoming!

Minx, you might want to try Hill Country Leathers in Wimberly Tx. , up North east of Austin.

Great prices (got my chaps for $109.00 and a nice Jacket for a hundred), they have a pretty good selection of ladies gear there also.

Ohh and don't worry about me being in this ladies only thread.. See I'm a lesbian trapped in a mans body so your secrets are safe with me...

Everything I have, saddlebags, chaps, vests, jackets, boots, hair ties, etc. I had to get online at these three sites. www.leather.com www.leatherup.com and www.jaminleather.com. You will be more than pleasantly surprised at the prices. I am very happy with everything I purchased. Good luck!

Try to find bike rallies and/or runs in your area that have vendors. All the 2-3 day and larger events have them but sometimes smaller ones do too. You might also try leather/biker clothes/manufacturers websites. Try UNIK International, FIRST Leather Apparel, and BIKER'S Leather Stuff. Good Luck .....I lucked out one day @ a pawn shop, believe it or not!!! I got a $280 pair of lined chaps. I dont think they had ever been worn @ all, they fit like they were made just for me (Im pretty tall so I have hard time w/ length!!) I paid $49!!!!

I've bought a few items including my chaps at jaminleather,daytona.I had it shipped to Canada and with the exchange and shipping costs it still cost me less than it would have if I bought it here in Canada.Take a peek online-they have some nice things(some sexy things too..smile)

Hey crazee, I know of a few places ..... Maybe a ride to Janesville after I pick you up. There is an outlet .... "Renegade" ... that has a lot of stuff and there is a "parts unlimited" outlet store (Drag Specialties parent co.) near there that has a few things too. And of course Kutter HD. When should I pick you up?

Harley store are really pricey....you pay for the name, but it's good quality.
Go to a leather store, flea market or perhaps even a second hand store.

I don't care where you get it.... I just want to see you in it..

hello ladies! I got my vest, which is very unique in eureka ark. and my chaps at us leather the both only cost me $110!! and i got some really cute riding boots with roses up the ankles at bikers dream here in colorado springs. But my problem was, the ones I wanted at the Harley store were too big ( I wear a kids size 2!!!) so I had to opt for a ladies size 5 which is one size bigger than I wear in ladies shoes so I just wear thick socks!!!

The Harley Store only has 2 vests and they are costly...not worth it for the price. I guess I will stick with what I found on the internet!
