If youre looking for a cheap, trashed-out, rode hard and put away wet motorcycle jacket, youll need to look elsewhere. I hate to do it, but I have to liquidate some of my beloved vintage motorcycle jackets to help fund a new hot rod. Best of the bestmany are museum quality. This Bronx jacket debuted in 1956. If you know your vintage motorcycle jackets, you will recognize this as an iconic jacket.
Comes with its attached belt. The condition of this jacket is essentially museum qualityprobably not a nicer specimen in the world.
If Lewis Leathers has an historical jacket archive, thats where this jacket belongs. Not sure if steerhide or horsehideD.
No size tag is evident, so see measurements for sizing. All of my jackets have been treated with Obenaufs Leather Oil (the best conditioner available for vintage leather jackets, in my opinionexpensive, but nothing else comes close). Jacket leather is very pliable and soft. All zippers and snaps have been cleaned, and function as they should.
All metal zipper pulls are intact, with rawhide/leather pull extensions on most (may be original, not sure). Jacket leather has no color loss anywhere. No odors, other than vintage leather. Main zipper is a Lightning, and all are original. See the photos for condition.Other than some creases and wrinkles, almost no age-related wear is evident. Ive struggled to identify any jacket flaws, but to be honest, none are apparent. You will not be disappointed with this jacket. Its an exceptional, collection-worthy specimen.
