Yes I have a few pairs of gloves and a stem coming. I'm keeping 1 set of gloves and the rest is for sale once received.

This thread amuses me greatly as >>>> I <<<< am the source that Kevan was speculating he'd be getting a bulk amount of the Rocket power / Scary fast stuff from. Having seen how much he's marked up the prices perhaps I should be charging more for the stuff. ;)

I wouldn't if I was you. Yours, including shipping to the UK, are £23 more expensive than his are, even before you include import duties at 20%:

£58

£35

Maybe he should be charging more?

That's because I'm across the ocean and won't ship without tracking, though I will ship to about forty different countries while he only posts in the UK.

The actual price though, as posted on ebay.com, including shipping in Canada or the USA, is $35 USD.

Just dug out my favorite gloves of all time. Rocket Power Parts Gloves, rocket red in colour. I guess from around 1994 or 1995, produced other bits and bobs as well. Long since closed down but so cool.....(in fact I thought they where so cool I had a tatoo done on my leg!)


Amazing, the tattoo looks cool and nice

So if he's only selling to the UK where's this mark up you're talking about? He's already paid your insane postage, he's already paid the customs charge and yet his price is still far, far cheaper to the UK than yours. Compare like for like.

Can't honestly see why you needed to throw your oar in in the first place? He bought stuff from you and is now selling it on. Why bitch like a girl about the price he's then selling it on for? You got your money so shush.

He bought several items at once, and thus the shipping charge per item was effectively lower. Or is the concept of "combined shipping" too much for your limited intelligence to comprehend ?
