    I have here the best looking cafe racer I've ever seen. It is a custom jacket by Aero, done in black front quarter horsehide. My favorite thing about this jacket is that it is a simplified version without breast pockets and with a plain back (no bi-swing or kidney panel.) This detailing takes away any hint of costume - it works just as well as outerwear as it does on a bike.

    This is my own jacket and I rarely wore it (it's been a bit small on me for years.) It is in really excellent condition. There is no real wear to the black cotton drill cloth lining, and the horsehide is just starting to soften up and acquire some patina. It is missing the little diamond shaped zipper pull on one of the side pockets (chain is still there.)

    It is tagged a size 46 and should fit in the 44 to 46 range. The measurements are: chest - 52, waist at the bottom - 45, shoulders from seam to seam - 20.75, overall length - 29, sleeves - 26.5.

    Now that Aero USA has shut down, current retail on these is $1000 plus shipping from the UK and possible customs fees. Plus there is a wait, and no way of knowing the measurements of the jacket you would recieve. This jacket is being sold to finance a specific purchase so I will take the first $590 via paypal, no checks, trades, credits etc., and no returns. It will be going up on ebay shortly for $649 with a $690 BIN so don't hesitate! Shipping will be actual cost to your ZIP, it will probably run around $25 in the US.
