Beautiful Jackets Just Because.....





In upcoming blogs Im going to write about the history of zippers, hopefully interview two old time bikers from the 1950s, and if I am lucky I will have an interview with one of the descendants of Archie's Riders. In the meantime there were some absolutely beautiful jackets that were traded this week and I cant help myself but post some images on my blog!!




If any of my faithful readers have old family photos, or a family member who bought, sold or made leather or have any other great images or stories, I am always looking for new information, material and images to publish. Send em my way!!!

  2. I think your blog is great. I live in New York, but I have family in Toronto and visit about twice a year. Do you have any suggestions of where I might be able to scoop up a nice horsehide jacket? I almost picked one up at Kensington Market last December, but it was a bit large on me. Much appreciation in advance & keep up the great blog!

  3. I think this blog is among the best in the category of vintage leather jacket. I live in Greece and I have two motorcycles. A Ducati St4s ABS model 03 and a BMW R75 of 77. I enjoy the Ducati jacket my DAINESE and also the Harley. Now interested in an authentic Buco J-100 Steerhide jacket size 44 and larger. Any help from you, in my search, are welcome. Again, congratulations on the blog. Continue with the same enthusiasm.

  9. I can find you a supply of raw horsehide if you are looking for it as I have a friend who deals in them however your comment looks suspiciously like spam and there is no return email, my contact information is listed at the top of the blog
