Outlaw Helmets

Postby wbetheajr » Mon Jun 06, 2011 9:37 am



Heads up folks. I have saw some ads for "Leather-up.com" on here and thought I would let eveyone know this. I bought an outlaw half helmet back last fall and within 3 months the decal ( I guess that is what you call it ) developed a small hairline seperation. When I took it back to the dealer I bought it from he had gone out of buisness. I didn't think much more about it until this spring, on my first trip to the beach, the decal bubbled up all over the helmet and started to peel off. I searched around until I found out that "leather-up" is the actual manufacturer of this helmet and gave them a call. I explained my delima to the the rep and he as much as told me I been screwed. He said they do not stand behind their product unless it is actually bought from them. I have contacted the BBB in their home state and this has had no results. I ride with the "Marine Riders" the "Patriot Riders" plus my own group that I hang out with, I do almost every charity ride that comes up, so I am out there. I bet i have sold over 30 people on the outlaw helmets like mine and now these people are messed up if their helmets do like mine. I have set out to let everyone know about "leather-up".

Wow, I saw the title "OUTLAW HELMETS" and I thought it was going to be some anti-helmet law thread. :D

Here is another pic. These pics don't really give it justice. to see it first hand you can really tell how bad it is

Guess what, I was contacted by the sales manager at leatherup.com and he apologized for the problem with the helmet and for the problem I was having trying to get it replaced. I think what helped was posting the pics on here and my face book page. A lot of people was seeing the problem I had. I posted the problem every where I could upload a picture. I was getting ready to do a video for you tube. A big thumbs up for Frank at Leatherup.com
