These days a Lewis Leather jacket requires a hefty investment but these jackets will last a lifetime. One of Lewis's most iconic jacket is the Super Monza, The super Monza appeared in 1978 as an update on the particularly short Monza jacket. The Monza was an early seventies race inspired design that was instantly popular. The most apparent stylistic change of the Super Monza was the longer length. The side adjuster belts were moved to the back and an inside pocket was added. It came to be the most iconic Lewis Leather jacket of the late 1970s early 1980s.
An extra long jacket tailored from quality hide, it features a wrap over windproof front with heavy duty zipper, zipped pockets and cuffs. It features signature reinforced diamond padding at the shoulders and elbows. All Lewis leather jackets are made to order and available in eight different shades of cow hide, so give yourself some time when ordering. If you are an odd size - built like Arnie or a Teletubby - Lewis offer a reasonably priced bespoke service. http://www.lewisleathers.com/productinfo.html?code=jak-445
"THE CHOPPER - THE REAL STORY" - PAUL D'ORLEANS. “Where did you get this motorcycle?” “It’s not a motorcycle, baby, it’s a chopper.” — Butch (Bruce Willis), Pulp Fiction As bikers, many of us with a natural leaning towards grumpiness, tend to think we know pretty much all there is to know about bikes that worth knowing. Well, we're wrong. Paul D'Orleans, The Vintagent, is a man who puts virtually all of us to shame. He knows more, alot more.
Rider, collector, builder and historian, Paul is a rare breed of journalist who always educates and never condescends, and with an unbridled enthusiasm he has the infectious knack of rendering subjects once dismissed by some as irrelevant, utterly fascinating. http://shop.gestalten.com/chopper-en.html andy and hard wearing plaited leather key holder is perfect.
