    I think the camo is contrived. It just looks to perfect

    Ummmmm if its a real shell that's been restored, I'd buy it for that reason only, but for less than 200.... If he is trying to fob it off as real, I wouldn't buy it just for that reason

    I would say so. A good one would be over $1000 , IMO . Sorry.

    Matt, I like your avatar. Have you posted a thread on that jacket?
    -Update-
    If you can get a decent deal, I might go for it just based on the shell and it depends on wether the liner is original. Better pics are needed to decide that, IMO . Also, are there two helmets?

    Hmm. Very clear images are needed to be sure, but my gut says this is a repaint. As for the coat, I will check out your thread on it. I love the leather jackets and I have one too!
