Made in Detroit by Brooks! Very cool and classic Cafe Racer Motorcycle Jacket. This jacket is made of thick, quality steerhide leather and features action back for easy movement despite being a slim-fitting jacket. The vintage is 1970s. Jacket is missing zip-in winter lining. All zippers are working, but main tallon zipper is missing the zipper pull and has had a piece of plastic hooked onto it (see photo). The zipper still works, but you may want to replace the pull (an easy job for a tailor or seamstress). The jacket shows some wear throughout that adds to the character of the jacket, including a few minor scratches and patina. There was a patch on the lower back of the jacket that has since been removed, and the outline is barely visible.

Tag marked 38, but these jackets are slim-fitting so check measurements before buying. The model is a size 38 chest, 5 foot 7 inches.

Shoulder to shoulder: 17 inches
Chest from armpit to armpit across the front: 19 inches
Length from bottom of collar to hem: 25 inches
Sleeves, from shoulder to cuff: 26 inches

Asking $150 Shipped in USA or CANADA.
