    I have come to know the owners a bit and even got a couple things from there for Christmas. Great people. I haven't seen and felt the gear, but I would suspect good quality based on the way they are about everything else. Contact them and ask questions. I'm sure you'll get an honest reply.

    I have a couple retro Yamaha jerseys. They're 10 years old and look new. And they've seen dirt intimately. :D

    I bought a bunch of their stuff a few years back, looks great, nice guys, but, dry on low heat! All my logos cracked, and wore off pretty quick, but I believe it was from too much heat on my part.

    I am about due to get some more gear from them, thanks for the reminder!

    They're the only place I've seen in the U.S. that sells the Alpinestar Victory all leather vintage MX boots - like the old Hi Points.

    Their clothing uses heat transfer images instead of silk screen images so they are very susceptable to damage from heat. I've had a Bultaco shirt for years. It's getting a bit old now, but held up good - apparently my wife treats it good when washed. Also wash inside out.

    Donzilla shoots the ad shots for Metro - those ones with the sweet flat trackers if you might notice them beyond the sweet girls in the shots. I like the WKR Kawasaki Big Horn ad.
