Leather Jacket for Cruiser...

I got a buddy who rides a Warrior and is looking for a leather jacket.

Does anyone know of any places that sell cruiser type jackets? or know of any good brand names to look for?

Right now he has an Alpinestar, but wants to get away from the sportbike type riding jacket.

He already knows of Vanson.


Thanks


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I have a Hudson, that I am very pleased with. They are almost always at the show. It has the vents, (you have to punch them, or pay to have them punched. WTH), But it doesn't look racerboyish. It also came with a removable liner.

They run about $150-200.

Hope that helps Chey.
