    Arai Corsair's

    Do shops markup their helmets like hell or what? Arai Corsair's on ebay are like $500CAD with shipping, brand new too.

    Why not just get it from eBay?

    most of my motorcycle gear has been purchased from ebay, and I figure I pay less than half of retail here. I do however support local shops when they have a good buy for something I need.

    I bought some used things in our Buy/Sell forum. I guess those people who are selling used Arai/Shoei helmets are probably bought from ebay ehh? Or maybe not. Because that's a lot of money you're losing if you are selling a helmet that is worn for a season and selling it out for $500 where you bought it for 1g.

    ^But why would you buy a helmet at near full value when it is used and that there is uncertainty to how well it was treated. It can look great, but to really know, u gotta send it in.

    It's like anything though. Once it isn't new, it takes a huge hit. Just like automobiles with low mileage that are a year old.

    internet shops they do not need to pay rent for a store front, they don't need to hire sales person and many of them don't need to pay tax. a lot of the internet shops are home based . so basiclly is the same guy that does sales/accounting/shipping. you do the math . ppl that works at the local store are just like us, we all need to bring food home to feed our family.
