    Looks like a bloody good quality embroidered cap Rodders.
    Good value I reckon even at twice the price.
    Can’t believe HD sells em here for $55, some not even embroidered and what’s worse is that dumb asses even buy them.
    Makes you wonder what it actually costs to make a Harley. 
    $8000? Too high? wadayareckon?

    Interesting question Rattybob.
    Reckon they punch em out for less than that ($8000). It's just all the prep work they have to make up for in the meantime. You know, design work, engineering, patterns,castings,tooling etc etc.
    By the time they take into account shipping them to Aussie, the dealers cut, the GST, the warranty claims and all of that I guess it all costs pretty close to what we have to pay for them minus a small percentage for the actual factory. After all, it's hard to be greedy when there is so much competition.

    Thats a very fetching cap. I’d have it. I do prefer truckers caps though. Like Jack Burton’s here... and remember what old Jack Burton always says...

    I thought it was Jack that said something about the best thing about beating up an asian person.  Half an hour later you want to do it all again. Couldn't find his quote though.

    There's a HD dealer over here. I was looking at getting a dealer printed t-shirt until I saw the price. 
    About $65 aud for a basic dealer T. Couldn't stop laughing.

    And don"t get us going on the jeans that have been razor sliced. Must think of another aspect of "looking cool" to sell, like hole in boots. 
    I have my good Levis and my old Levis, with the old Levi"s having the knees kinda exposed, not to be cool, but I ride a Harley, consequently can"t always afford new fucken jeans!

    few years back it was possible to  find the HD motor-clothes factory on the net .
    now you cant , HD mustve taken care of that one .
    its in china , all the top price stuff is cheap as chips to make . HD makes a killing on clothing

    HD also clamps down on knock offs being sold outside asia , anything that doesnt have the (R) trade mark symbol

    Hey Baloffski, the kids must think you & I are the coolest ol' cunts around with the knees out of our jeans. 
    They don't realise that look's been around for years..... from crawlin' around the shed floor fixin' stuff.
