Café Racer Motorcycle Jackets
by Vanson

Riding a vintage bike and are looking for a vintage leather jacket look – Vanson has many Cafe Racer jackets styles to choose from. 

So who calls this "vintage" anyway? Since when did the "Real Deal" become "vintage"?  Must be the kids...  Never mind: "get with the program and buy the best, it will last you forever..." so said my Dad...

This is where Vanson comes in. We make the "Real Deal", the old way, by hand, one-at-a-time, in our workshop in Fall River, Massachusetts.  The Vanson DNA stretches from Cafe Racer to professional Road Race, Drag Race and Flat Track suits.  Since 1974. Made in USA.

For every Cafe Racer jacket purchased you will recieve a FREE T2D tee shirts. Just enter #CAFE in the message box at check out.The Café Racer jackets in our collection (see below) are mostly the first jacket models we made. Norton Commandos were cool. CB750s still looked newish enough. BMWs came from Berlin. Laverda, Ducati, Benelli and Triumph were all going concerns. The "British Invasion" was fresh and London was definitely the place to be.

Rockers (or Ton-up Boys) and their leathers were a beacon to bikers around the world. Cafe Racer jackets referenced this in the lifestyle of motorcycle enthusiasts that took pride in modifying their bikes, continuously optimizing them for looks, speed and handling.
That is how the Café Racer was born!

Fit, Style, Innovation, Cool, Protection, Versatility, Hand-built-to-last, Heirloom-Quality, made one-at-a-time and identified with a unique number, Renewable-by-design, American Made with Pride, Sold with Pride, Owned with Pride. No Compromises...
