    I'm thinking about ordering a suit from Spartan. (click me)

    I've seen some group buys on some other boards and was curious if maybe we could put together something like that here.

    Anyone interested?

    I talked to Dave, the owner, and he says we need 5+ suits to get a discount.

    anyone interested?

    400 something is not to bad for a suit.

    I don't need one, but for anybody just getting into track days. It is an option.

    I am a member of Louisville Sportbikes. Dave gets lots of good reviews on his work, but I have yet to meet him personally. He is also coming out with gloves and is taking comments on what riders would like in a glove.

    0-4 people - no discount
    5-9 people - $25 off
    10-14 - $40 off
    15+ - $55 off

    Discount applies to any suit, even off the rack sizes (rack sizes have a maximum of $35 off)

    I want a yes/no as to weather or not you will be buying a suit (not just a im sort of interested) by the 22nd. If there isnt enough people by then than i am just oging to order my suit, if there is, then great!







    mods, if you could change the title to put "group buy" in it that would be awesome (i think it would get more attention)

    Jay, I am interested but not enough to commit yet. I am looking at another firm that also makes custom gear.

    ALso I found some closeout Alpinestars for around the same price.

    I would love to, but cash is tight right now. So I'll need to wait.

    Looks like a good idea even at full price.

    FWIW, I can vouch for these leathers. I have seen multiple of them in person and they are top notch. Anyone ever pick some up?
