Brown Leather Motorcycle Jacket made in USA

If you’re lucky, you still have your favorite leather jacket—maybe you even wear it every day. I sometimes pine for mine—it was a ’70s-era Schott I bought in a used clothing store. It looked, fit and felt just right, but I sold it to buy a brand-new Vanson suit, as the Vanson’s protection, durability and features were inarguably far superior. A succession of riding gear has followed, and though every year brings new innovations in safety or comfort, it’s hard to find a jacket that has the soul of that old brown Schott. If a jacket is comfortable…

Vintage Leather Motorcycle Jackets on eBay

This vintage Peters leather jacket sold on eBay quite a while ago, I’ve just been a little skeptical of it selling for this price so I refrained from posting about it. I haven’t seen it relisted, nor have I seen it show up anywhere else, so I guess the sale was legitimate. No doubt the Peters label is super rare. In fact, I can’t remember one popping up on eBay anytime in the last several years. It was first offered up on eBay as a Buy It Now or Best Offer (BINOBO) for $8, 500 and the offer price that was finally taken was near the 8 stacks price…
