I'm looking to find a simple black leather jacket that I can customize myself.

I like the HD Stock Leather Jacket but it's not exactly what I'm looking for.

Any suggestions of where I can find a non-expensive leather jacket in the same style without logos?

Thanks,
-Mike

Try these guys. Got a vest from them and very good quality stuff.
LEGENDARY USA

Just spend some time doing some google or dogpile searches. One thing I would recommed is to get a jacket with vents front, back and sleeves so when the weather heats up a bit you can zip open those vents to get some air circulation and cool down a bit.

Try the mall. Most have a leather store that sell cheap motorcycle jackets. Cheap is the operative word here.

Foxcreek Leather. Vented racing jacket (plain), real leather, made in the USA, real quality guaranteed for life. About $350, not like $550 at the stealer for cheap leather.

Get quality at a good price and keep it for life.

I'd like something good quality. No necessarily the best quality, but good reliable quality. I'm a college student, so price is a huge factor for me.

I saw the HD "stock" jacket for $180 at a local dealer. I like it excpet for the orange logo.

So how about some middle ground, anythign in the 100-200 range, medium weight?

right now this one is in the running:

If I go high end, and double my price range, I'll probably go foxcreek:

Thanks for the help so far, and please keep the suggestions coming.

That one you have picked out from legendary usa I bought last year from Chilhowee for $79. Chilhowee mid-weight racer It's actually pretty nice. The ad says summer weight, but I can wear mine with just a shirt underneath at 45* and stay warm. The zippers are NOT YKK and it's NOT made in the US.

Fox Creek is really good stuff; I got several pieces of their clothing. But it is decidedly NOT cheap!!! You can buy stuff almost as good at less than half the price. It isn't going to say "Made in America" on it and it won't have a lifetime warranty. But do you really need that? I doubt it, to be honest. I personally wanted the "Made in America" label on my leather when I bought this. But I got other, older leather that's still perfectly fine that doesn't say that on it, and I still use it. Different time, different budget. Still good stuff. Work with what you got, and do the best you can. Any leather is better than no leather.

Have you tried Ebay? I've bought a couple of HD leather jackets for well under retail. You might find other brands correspondingly cheaper, too. :D

Go check out J.C. Penny. Seriously, I bought a plain vanilla black jacket for $99.00 right before Christmas. They might still have some on clearance while getting ready for Spring. It is full length, and has a zip out liner with good zippers (I don't know if they are YKK or not, but they are sturdy) and it has no logos anywhere on it. It is a little too heavy for summer use, but right now it feels real good with and W/O the liner.

if you want the HD jacket you can get it at 30% off at zanottis web site. my brother in law bought one from them for the big savings they offer.

you need to know how to put the size in after part number, I used to know but can't remember how to, I emailed them before and they sent me the info.

good luck and ride safe.
