Default Jesse James West Coast Chopper limited edition tool set

Jesse James West Coast Chopper Limited Edition tool set. These were sold by Mac Tools and are warrantied by them. This set is still new and none of the tools have ever been used. Asking price is $1,200 These sets are getting impossible to find! This set is heavy so the shipping is going to be fairly high. You can send me your zip code for an exact quote. I'm listing them for a buddy but will work with him to answer all of your questions.

Here are the pictures:

No offense to anyone, but I assume these would only be purchased by some type of collector?

I cannot see any other reason to buy a set of tools like that if you were not going to use them.

That is actually one hell of a deal, I'd bet the toolbox by itself was 1,000. Yup, a collector's item, I couldn't use those and scratch them up, I'd be sick to my stomache.

That is just it...I wouldn't want to use them and lose the Collector's appeal either. I am sure they were pretty expensive to begin with.

Anyway, 4 DOR VTT, sorry for discussing this in the For Sale thread...Good Luck to ya!

Sorry, that was my point, if I had the cash, I'd scoop up on it, its worth well more than the $1200 he's asking just for the investment. The naked tool value of that setup if it weren't a collector's edition would be over $1200. Add to that a limited edition collectable value, its one hell of a deal!

Good luck with the sale, someone is going to get a deal!

That set you saw was a different set was not as many tools and the box was smaller. If you don't like the price he doesn’t have to sell it but has a baby on the way and he's trying to make the wife happy! Anything that is worth having usually increases in value! This is a collector’s edition so I don't think anyone who buys it will ever turn one of the wrenches...

A check of other sources like eBay shows a set with less art, scratches, and busted lock going for $560.00. Use a set like that to mod the TBSS.

This set not having the above defects is worth lots more as a collectors item.

"These tools have not seen oil in years." does not apply to this set.

So yes the price is justified. No I can't wrap my mind around "tool art" and would reach for them slap the impact on and... Lifetime warranty?

Proof that this is worth more than the other posts slander: (Sold set)

I know I'm a newbie on here, but damn get off this guys back with that Sam's crap. Its not the same. Two completely different sets. I have this same exact toolbox set, along with Chip Foose, Kenny Bernstein, and not to mention the BIG boxes for each of these too plus a few others. Ive sold one of the Chip Fooses to a guy up in Canada for 2100 but some of that was shipping too. 1200 IS NOT over priced for this set.


<------Works for Mac Tools/ Stanley Tools.

why do you fags get all butt hurt because i said i saw it at sams club.the tools shown in the first picture are the same ones they had. the other pictures show a lot more tools and were definately not the ones from sams club. so im not posting bullshit. all i was trying to say what that they really must have gone up in value but some people have to make a bigger deal out of things. some one could have said that was a different set or something instead of acting like a bunch of bitches
