1970s Pullover leather racing shirt

This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1970s and was worn by a biker through most of its life. The label has worn away, unfortunately. The jacket has a deep front yoke, with a half-zip, two zipper diagonal breast pockets, and zips on the side seams to help get into the jacket. The back has a corresponding deep yoke. The sleeves have zip cuffs. Zips are a mix of chunky brass talons and YKK. There is evidence of this jacket’s past life in its pin marks on the collar the outline of motorcycle club patches down the sleeve.

Leather Cafe Racer / Racing Shirt

I bought this one to sell, but I think I’m going to end up keeping it. It’s an old cafe racer. The main zip has been replaced, but the sleeve zippers are brass servals, and the pockets are talons. The cuffs are an open-zip style, that is, they do not have the leather gusset inside like some leather jackets do. There are no handwarmer pockets and no interior pockets. About as simple as a jacket gets.
