I had bought a Brooks leather jacket when I bought my first sportster, 14 years ago. It's too small for me to wear now but I saw one at a motorcyle shop and they are still made in the USA and look like great quality. anyone have one of these jackets, where did you buy it ( online maybe ).

I bought my Brooks leather in Detroit at a Brooks outlet (they were made there way back)...both the outlet and the leather are long gone but it was a great leather with one of the first zip out linings. I'm told the quality has gone downhill some but I couldn't say I haven't seen one in maybe 20/25 years...

I stll have my Brooks which was purchased in 1985. My first motorcycle jacket. It has the straight collar, zipper sleeves, 2 slanted zippered pockets, and removeable liner. No fringe , hooks, loops, spare zippers, feathers, flashing lights, etc.

I can not get myself to part with it.

Bought one for me and one for my wife in 1992. Look just like the two posted right above. Still going great. Very tough. I don't know if the new ones would be as good, since I haven't seen one in years.

Got a size 46 for sale if you are interested.

No thanks. you are saying it's a 46, but the classified add shows 44. are you sure on what size it is.

Sorry, it's a 44. My new jacket is a 46.
If it's indeed like my old Brooks it would be a good deal lighter than my Jammin' leather that I use for winter. it'd make a good fall/spring jacket. The size is in the ballpark but the price is pretty steep...I'm guess buyer covers shipping...that said is $150 the least you'd take?

Christmas special. $100 + $10 bucks to ship. I really hate to see it go but I don't think I will ever wear it again. It also has a zip out liner.

seems this thread has been highjacked into a sales thread for a brooks leather. It wasn't that important of a thread to begin with, so no big deal. I think I should get 10% if you sell it now. just PM me when you sell it and I'll let you know where to send the check.
Thanks.
