Hey all,

since this is the place to demo the sites (albeit not fully loaded, or 100% finished, yet - next 24hrs will have 11,000 sku) here's our new build on OpenCart 1.5.3.1 - http://fastpartz.com

We're a specialist retailer of Scooter, moped and motorbike parts going since 2007, primarily on eBay, plus a good chunk of old-school retail - but we've decided to push the boat out and get with the times and go full time into e-commerce. One of us used to run a large e-comm in a different industry (it's amazing how different industries have different needs, wants and expectations - the parts industry is way different to the other e-comm)

We've used a bunch of mods from Hostjars, an SEO mod, and a couple of others - that I am more than willing to recommend.

We're looking to put regional translations in soon, plus multi-zone shipping and a bunch of other mods - but, having used Magento and other e-comm, I am starting to really like Opencart and much props to the devs and mod creators out there.

Thanks to all who read and have a browse,

from all of us at Fastpartz.com

Hi there,

I have gone to your store and it’s says that is currently "closed" for maintenance?

hi! yeah, we had an unforseen bump in the road - the Add to Cart button failed (dropped code apparently, along the road somewhere) - but, we're back and functioning - actually have customers and orders now, feel like grown ups. O0

Stylish looking site, I like it. It does seem quite slow loading and some of your hover-over (zoom in) images seem a bit blurred so you may want to check each of these out before finalising the store.

Best of luck with it!
