I have been buying quite a few parts for the Vh just lately. Two examples, I could buy six new corners for the chrome window rubber for about $15 or buy four second hand from 4 blok at a reduced price of $114. I can buy two rubber gaskets for the tail lights for $43.50 or buy one from 4 blok for $60 complete with scratches. No mention of the parts being gold plated. Wouldn't you be pissed off if you bought their parts and then found it so much cheaper to buy new.

Shows you have been shopping round, which is a very smart move :)

By the looks of it, the 4 blok place is trying to cash in on other people's lack of research...

4 blok is the place to not buy parts. IF he has it you will always find it cheaper else where but he probably greases the wheels that satisfy the logarithm for google/ebay so he pops up early when doing searches.

Agree with the above, every time I’ve looked at 4 blok they have been significantly more expensive
