This jacket was made in the 1970s for Dan, a member of the Road Knights Motorcycle Club. The Road Knights were founded in 1973 by members of the US Army stationed in the Canal Zone in Panama. It is the oldest recognized motorcycle club in that country. This jacket started off life as a Wrangler four pocket denim jacket, with snap pockets and cuffs and rivet button front. The colors on the back were entirely hand sewn, with reflective edging and studwork. The rockers read, “Road Knights”, “Canal Zone” with a logo of a knights helmet atop a motorcycle wheel. On top of the top rocker are two hand embroidered motorcycles, one a stock bike, the other a twin headlight chopper. The owner’s name, Dan, is hand embroidered on the front.
