Default Limited Time Group Buy Xl Series Compact Saddlebags $69

[QUOTE=ozark;644608]Hi,

I sell a variety of Motorcycle related items see: http://DONSCYCLEWARE.COM

From time to time I order in quantity at a good discount and I would like to give the forum members an opportunity to take advantage of my discount.

The minimum purchase quantity varies by item. On some items we get a good discount on purchases of a dozen or so items on others we need to purchase a 100 or more.

Collecting the money and keeping track of the orders is always a problem. I propose to list the items in my on-line store. You can place an order at the reduced price and I will handle it like any other order. You can use Paypal, credit cards etc. to pay for the purchase. I will post a link on the forum to the item.
--------------------------SNIP---------------------------------------------

There are three styles: Slant, Studded slant and square. Forum members can purchase them at the wholesale price of $69.00 ea. no minimum order. I'll list these in my Yahoo store.

Please don't confuse my products or service with Jafrum. Check out their feedback on Toolhaus:

I'm a little sensitive about that. One of these days I'll tell the story.

I'm interested in the Micro Tach. Every once in a while I forget that my Sporty is a five speed. I rode the old ones too many years. Deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other

I can see the prices. Did you click on the photo to choose which item to look at?
For what it's worth. I'm working on the site right now. I'm hiding the special pricing for XL members to use for the group buy so others can't find it easily. I'll post a direct link to the saddlebags in this thread.

Default Here Are The Links To The Saddlebags At The Group Buy Prices

Hi,
Yes I know I'm top posting! I want the links to be easy to find.
Here is the link to the plain compact slant:

http://donscycleware.com/xlfogrbuysl.html

here is the link to the studded compact slant:

http://donscycleware.com/xlfogrbuysts.html

here is the link to the compact square:

http://donscycleware.com/xlfogrbuycos.html

I have set aside a limited number for Forum members. When they're gone they're gone! They will be available at retail after these are gone. I have just placed another order that is expected to arrive in October. If the members are interested in advance ordering some of those after this lot is gone I'll set it up.

NOTE: The Yahoo shipping calculator doesn't calculate shipping for outside the US. If you live outside the US send a message and I'll forward a Paypal invoice.
