Ron lad, thanks for posting that, now I feel really depressed t'other year we was getting $2 for every £1 we changed up, now it's $1.38, that means me beer over there will be more expensive.
Still one good thing, I got me a bundle of NZ Dollars at £1=$3, on that site it says they're now £1=$2.75, which is great. I'll be drinking like a fish and eating Lobster all the time, and it'll cost me less
Rusty I know it is difficult to understand currency rates, I sometime get the same problem.
However today your £200(GBP) item is $276(USD) out of your pocket. Last year when the Migrant Farmworkers were bumming around PA,WV,OH that same £200 item would have taken $400 from your pocket, difference being $124.
So now IS a good time for US to be buying from UK But now is NOT a good time for the Migrant Farmworkers to return when their GBP is worth around 2/3 whatt it was last time. Being the sort of folks they are they will not worry too much and will be back for harvest time just the same
Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures
Rusty As folks have said the exchange is pretty good for us right now . Bear in mind though that in addition to the purchase price you will have to pay shipping and depending on the size and weight of the item it can be pricey . As an Enfield guy I don't have the luxury of many domestic outlets for parts like the Triumph, BSA and Norton guys have so Hitchcoks in UK has been draining my wallet for quite a while . Having said that I get ease of online catalogs ( actual copies of originals indexed to the part numbers ) ,fast service and great availability . I spent a lot at the 2 for 1 rate so it's like my birthday with the current rate . Only problem is I don't currently need quite as much stuff as I did for the last couple years . George
Funny timing for me to see this question. I just ordered (10 minutes ago) a Surefoot side stand for my BMW from Motobins; with the current exchange it's only about 80 or 90 bucks. I don't know what shipping will be, though. I enjoyed watching that big VAT number disappear when I clicked the box that said I was ordering from the U.S.

Man I don't know what you guys are puttin in your pipes but everyone knows the only way to turn dollers into pounds is to convert to silver dollars/steel copper ones first! Our pop-out centre Twonies make excellent large washers. They were falling out a lot in the first issue. Some kind of heat cycling press fit mumbo jumbo explanation was given but I think they skimped on the centre part weight once they figured it spec'd perfect to a BSA. Steve
