Pioneer Scooter Club jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271203622483

This vintage jacket was made in the mid 1950s. The label is missing, so the maker is currently unknown. It is made from a gabardine material, with a conmar zip, and pick stitched collar and pockets. There are elastic panels at the side of the waistband, and button adjusters on the cuff. The Pioneer Scooter club was active in San Francisco starting in 1960. Around this time, this ricky jacket was retrofitted for scooter use with leather elbow patches, and a club patch and pin. From the wear and staining to the jacket, it is clear that the original owner was active within the club membership. Scroll down the listing to see photos of an early “Pioneer Scooter Club” rally. Lots of Vespas and Lambrettas, and the club patch clearly visible.

Chest (pit to pit): 22-1/2″
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 22-1/2″
