1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Nice finds - I'm about 80% sure that first one is a Vanson model A though it looks like horsehide. Not sure if Vanson used horsehide. All details match my AZ though. If there is a 46-48 around in need of a seriously badass jacket, I hope he's watching.

    That first motorcycle jacket is awesome, unfortunely I'm a 42.

    J, I'm not familiar with the brand you mentioned. Any idea on where a similar jacket could be found?

    Thanks for the info, J. Interesting story about how I found it. My wife and I were on the way to see a horse in a rural county and we stopped at an antiques/junque store in a town. This jacket was on the back of a chair in the stairway. It was painted with dust and I used saddle soap and then mink oil to clean and treat. This amazing patina came out of it. It is a beauty and I am not sure of the leather. It does have a feel of horsehide but steerhide can have the same smooth, stiff quality.

    I forgot to mention this Baracuta-style jacket. I think this is better quality than Baracutas, though.
