Australian Distributors or retailers who ship to NZ

Post  Ulsterkiwi on Mon 05 Jan 2015, 7:59 pm

Hi folks
I am a bit frustrated with the NZ distribution networks (or lack thereof!)

I have a SHAD SH48 top box, I like it and it sits well on my FA. My wife had her first pillion ride with me and is keen to continue but the word "comfortable" has been mentioned more than once. I took the topbox off for her ride so she would have easier access to the grab rail. She would prefer to have the box to lean against and just rest her hands on her knees and grip more with her knees. (smart girl my missus!) I thought it would be good to get the SHAD back rest for the box but it appears the NZ distributor does not bring in any accessories to the country. Can anyone recommend an Australian company who might be able to help?

I have also scored a set of PLX539 racks (from a member of this forum) and am on the hunt for panniers. Kappa has been suggested as a cheaper but equally good alternative. Naturally Kappa do not have a designated distributor for NZ. Again, can anyone suggest an Australian alternative?

Cheers in advance.

Your local trimmer should be able to make a pad to suit your box .
 have you tried ebay, they may have some suppliers for kappa who will ship to you .

If you make the back plate a trimmer will be able to make one. Quite simple really. Superior Saddles in Auckland will be able to do that for not much.
