Motorbike Leather Jackets Pakistan
His business journey began in 2004 when the inquisitive Gosford TAFE business student’s brother, Scott, had a motorcycle crash. Scott was lucky and was discharged from hospital within 24 hours, but his motorcycle gear was ripped to shreds. Matt asked Scott why he didn’t wear a leather jacket, but he replied that they were too expensive.
“It opened up my eyes, ” he says. “I began researching why he couldn’t afford a jacket and wore a textile jacket five times too big for him. I found out where they are made and started designing my own jackets.”
It wasn’t until two years after starting the Finn Moto online motorcycle accessories and apparel business that Matt began riding bikes. The 27-year-old now has a passion for riding dirt bikes around Gosford state forests and also owns a Suzuki Gladius as his everyday mode of transport. “Motorcycles weren’t really my passion at the start, but design, technology and business were. However, as soon as I started riding, it opened up my eyes to what riders really want.”
In the early days of the business, Matt stocked a huge range of motorcycle items, but over the years he has whittled it down to the basics. “I did have a whole range that covered pretty much everything expect boots and helmets, ” he says. “But as the years have gone by I realise the majority of riders just want good jeans, gloves and jackets and I focus on those products and make them the best they can be.”
He also found that by stocking fewer styles, he could afford to stock more examples of each product which makes items quicker to supply and gives him the buying power to “keep prices nice and low”. “I love bringing value to customers, ” he says. Matt has sourced products from the USA, Vietnam and Korea. “I’ve tried the whole world, but I get most of the clothing from Pakistan now, ” he says.
