A Certain Rumbling

Okay, people. Most of the Lower Mainland has, in the last two months, thought to themselves “I’d better get my gear on consignment at ReRides right away, because the season is just about to start!“  And of course it is. And everyone has dropped off something lovely, thank you. And …

Westcoast Bound Bound….

I’m taking a goodly chunk of the contents of the store off to vend at the Westcoast Bound conference for the weekend. (Store will be open as usual, just without me and without a big chunk of the leather.) One very adventurous pair of conference attendees dropped into today for …

Toughest Vest in the Store

This vest came to me by way of England, so it’s well-traveled as well as being a shiny, shiny object. It’s made of a very nice leather, and even the lettering and patches are leather, not just embroidery. I’ve never seen the like, and can’t find its duplicate on the interwebs, so I’m gonna guess it’s a bit of a rarity.

Welcome Back!

Here I am back in the store for the first time after the holidays, and I’m cheerfully busy dealing with the mountain of new intakes. Lots of folks have dropped in already, so do come in and take advantage of the “I hate writing price tags” deal. If you buy …

Store closed today (Wed Dec 19)

My boss called a snow day. Wait, I am the boss! East Side Re-Rides closed because the roads are (as the newscaster put it) a travesty, and I’m not taking my van out there to do pirouettes… and every bus I see go by says “bus full”. *** Want a …

New –as in brand new– street bike gear

A whole bunch of goodies just came in, all new and with the dang factory tags still on, all perfect. Both women’s and men’s. If you’re looking for a slight (that means freaking huge) discount on brands like Belstaff, Alpinestars, Teknic, Icon, Joe Rocket and local designer Bian Viriani… well, …

Boo! Halloween Leathers, Boots and Helmets

Now, I’m not generally one to tell other folks what to think… Oh, who am I kidding. Here’s what you should think: Pirate, cowboy, biker, motorcycle racer, civil war reenactor, 1970s suede fringe monster, linesman, leatherman, australian drover, dominatrix, cop I mean police officer, goth, 1940s airplane pilot, 1975 swedish …

Shipment of goodies arrived

I just unpacked a gobsmack’s worth of goodies, some second-hand, some new, some vintage, some new-old deadstock: 20 pairs of leather pants (dressy to racing to jean style to fetish style) 4 jackets (Hein Gericke, Unik Premium, and a great old cafe racer in a large size) 12 vests, from …

Random surfing brings up….

Motorcycle photographs wherein the motorcyles are made up entirely of naked yoga experts in body pant. Just… wow. http://www.geekologie.com/2012/10/motorcycles-made-from-boypainted-ladies.php *** Want a particular item? Check the post’s date & item #, and call us 604.327.7433 ***

Rode Hard and put away dry

You ever see that toothless old dog up for adoption, and hear the agency explain that a senior dog is a wonderful pet, and that it is looking for its forever home, with the unspoken assumption that forever ain’t so very long from now? Alright, keep that in mind while …
