Riding a vintage bike and are looking for a vintage leather jacket look – Vanson has many Cafe Racer jackets styles to choose from. Cruising or Touring across country, ‘look’ comfort protection and ventilation is our specialty. Our American made garments stand out with a purposeful Café Racer flavor unique to Vanson.

 

The ‘Café Racer' Origins

The ‘Café Racer originated in the early 1960’s in London, England. The ‘Rockers’ or (Ton-up Boys) were a subculture of motorcycle enthusiasts that took pride in modifying their bikes, optimizing them for looks, speed and handling. It was the norm to meet dressed in your best leather jacket and hang out at the local Café where they could show their modified ‘steeds’ and boast of their superior qualities. Challenges would occur resulting in ‘quick’ rides from one Café to the next to see who was best. The Café Racer was born!

Vanson means Versatile

The materials we use range from full competition weight leather and wax cotton. All our garments stand out from the crowd and have the subtle details that identify them as a Vanson.

Vanson means Protection

Not only is there the obvious quality of first rate materials. Some styles also come with CE armor. Most The concept is to provide the protection desired at the potential point of contact, while also preventing the fitment of the armor from restricting movement.  We call this “Floating Armor”.

Vanson means Cool

Proper air-flow, particularly on a long hot ride, is an important safety factor. Vanson Leathers has several patents on incorporating aspects of ventilation into a garment without allowing the garment to “blow up” in size and become a distracting, fatiguing, billowing bag of air.

Vanson means Style

We make many different styles. If you wish your designs can be incorporated into your garment. We can take your designs and apply them to your Vanson.
