Question for folks from Oz about V1 Imports.

They have some NOS gear I want to buy, are these guys safe to order from?

Thanks - on a whim I decided to call their number and a bloke answered. He was friendly and helped with the order, did not seem sketch. He had some NOS JT gear I've been looking for that were sold out everywhere else. Got the last pair of pants in my size. He was very professional and helpful.

Will try to post back to this thread when the gear arrives.

Yep he seemed ok, he has only been importing for the motorcycle industry for a couple of years. His JT helmets are crazy cheap, with the current US / AUD (.74c US = $1. AUD) rate they are a bargain even factoring in international postage.
