The unmistakable clean lines of a classic '50s-style café racer jacket. Worn by Enfield, BSA, Triumph, Harley and CB 400 Four riders alike.

Good for a night out with friends, too.  Beautifully cut with a huge one piece back – no seams, no tiny little  pieces puzzled together to save leather. Big generous front panels too. This jacket is cut and built in the old way, which would be called uneconomic today, but we call No Compromises. Full-size 2” wide half belts sewn into the side seams, with a big polished nickel-plated solid brass buckle to keep the waist snug.  Available in both competition-weight and medium-weight cowhide. With zippered hand pockets, a zippered glove pocket, even a snap-close cigarette/ cellphone pocket, and classic chrome hardware throughout. Hand built in America. Destined to become a prized heirloom. In a word, Thunderbird!

BLACK PERFORATED REVOLUTION COMPETITION WEIGHT LEATHER
Full weight 1.4 mm competition leather is perforated
to allow airflow. Perforated leather is used in the
front ventilation panels.

BLACK FIRENZE - MEDIUM WEIGHT LEATHER ( 1.2 mm )
Selected skins are gently tumbled for extra softness
and a slight pebble look. Milling brings the grain up
making the natural markings a little more pronounced.
Garments made of this leather will require very little
breaking-in time as the leather is soft and supple right
away.

We are currently compiling our list of testimonials. We should have these posted soon.
