OMG! What a great idea! Wish you were here in LA. Big city to set up something like what you spoke of! I have been going nutz trying to find a bike for myself: 5'2". And, clothes are a problem also. I would love to be able to go into a store that also has clothing that is from other companies besides Harley. A bunch of the stuff I get from there is made in third world countries, has to be hand washed in cold water, and laid flat to dry. What a bunch of chit that is. Harley then charges top dollar for womens clothes that some slave made for 10 cents a day. All American promoted-give me the money reality.
I also want to get some gear that is more protective gear in beautiful colors. I have been dreaming about designing and selling gear for women.
It's a big undertaking and needs a healthy backing of cash to get something like that going, so I dream on...

I have several friends with motorcycle shops. Some of them also sell clothing. It is so expensive to carry all the different designs as well as all the different sizes that they try to minimize the amount that won't sell by carrying only the most popular styles and sizes. Thats probably why some sizes are hard to find..



Which is why I order from Victoria's Secret...or my local Harley Shop, when they order I get to look at the catalog and pick a couple of things out that I like..and they order some of what I like and yes, I do have some black harley halters with built in bra liners.

One of the things I've been very disappointed in is clothing. All of the cute little Harley and Chopper tank tops with spaghetti straps are made to fit flat-chested women. They would look much better on us well-endowed women. Where can we get the sexy tops?

I am with you goth when it comes to us busty woman you can forget finding anything cute... woiuld be very interested... oh that would be a great line of clothes... my mind is a turning now...



Try Halter tops gals. They are sexy too.

Dayumm Dragon, I have outgrown all my old biker shirts, I keep them with the hope of turning them into pillows some day.
It's rare to see me in a biker shirt anymore.
Seperates me from the rest!

75% of the floor space at my local Harley Dealer is clothing, they have a huge park out back and have benefits of some kind every other weekend. When you go inside the little kids are climbing all over the scooters while mom and dad are shopping for more clothes.

anyone interested in harley parts get in touch. I don't sell t-shirts or anything like that but anymore that is a big market too. My local HD dealer tells me that he averages nearly $20,000 a month in t-shirt sales

Brain..you want advice from one that knows...start looking into your suppliers..your limits to buy..you need alot of capitol...and trust me..the reason women do not get great service in the front room is because we are so damn busy in the back keeping everyone on the road....you need an EXCEPTIONAL paint/airbrush man..that will bring in the business...LOl..sorry..I will take selling a 35,000.00 masrterpiece over thousands and thousands of pieces of womens apparal...it is a business..treat it like one.Let the harley dealership sell the little stuff.
