ABC Custom Vintage Race Jacket

ABC Custom Vintage Race Jacket

An amazing, vintage 1960’s, incredibly orange racing jacket. Talon zip, made in USA, with some very cool retro patches and stripes and whatnot. It’s a little beat up (it’s 60 years old for Pete’s sake) but it’s structurally sound and so, so cute. Size 32-36ish, as…

You read that correctly… we have two of these. Two. From different consignors. Long-lost twins!

A seriously bold Barney purple/Easter yellow colour scheme for some seriously bold stuntin’.

Admittedly this isn’t what you’d call a subtle look, I wouldn’t be surprised if you could spot these things from space. But sometimes it’s good to command a little attention!

Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Estiva One Piece Racing Suit

Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Estiva One Piece Racing Suit

This Dainese one piece racing suit glories in the name “Laguna Seca Pro Estiva”. That’s Italian for “goes super fast”. In fact, all day long it’s been zooming at breakneck speed around the store like a giant red and black bumblebee, blindly seeking a motorcycle…

Icon Timax Klingon-Fighting Gauntlets (Rare, discontinued)

Icon Timax Klingon-Fighting Gauntlets (Rare, discontinued)

Icon stopped making these exact titanium armour gloves years and years ago, especially in the long, gauntlet form. The internets, past and present, are full of people asking each other where they can find a pair. Now you know. There’s a single rather lovely pair here waiting for you.

Sidi Boots. Wantdi boots. Bydi boots.

Sidi Boots. Wantdi boots. Bydi boots.

It’s quite possible I covered the whole message in the title.

Rode Hard and put away dry

You ever see that toothless old dog up for adoption, and hear the agency explain that a senior dog is a wonderful pet, and that it is looking for its forever home, with the unspoken assumption that forever ain’t so very long from now? Alright,…

Belstaff Trailmaster Waxed Cotton jacket and pants, vintage riding gear

Belstaff Trailmaster Waxed Cotton jacket and pants, vintage riding gear

Here’s a lovely high-end vintage piece for the tall size 44 rider. The Belstaff brand, founded in 1924, showed that the Brits were well onto the fact that riding without protection could give you a stiff upper lip. They’re famous for quality gear! You have…

Two Piece Motorcycle Suit – Black Leather and Kevlar (and Royer Boots)

Two Piece Motorcycle Suit – Black Leather and Kevlar (and Royer Boots)

Any time you’re sailing down the road at high speed and realize that at some moment past you left your motorcycle behind (Eeeeek!), safety becomes a rather immediate concern. Leather has long been appreciated for its abrasion resistance… but what if you’re travelling a long distance? (Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!) Well, this suit has the answer. Kevlar lining puts itself between the road surface and you. Now ain’t that comforting?  The kevlar is the kind that molds itself to your body with your body heat, so it starts out stiff and quickly allows you full flexibility.

The 2 pc suit is in perfect condition, with no real sign of having been worn. The pants (size 34) zip to the jacket.There are all sorts of fanciness like vents and gussets and elasticated panels and re-inforced things. It’s beautiful.

The jacket (size 40, fits larger) has two parallel  zippers. I imagine the tighter setting to be for travelling hungry to Thanksgiving dinner at your aunt’s place, and then the looser setting for travelling home again. Then again, maybe it’s about how much fuzzy sweater you’re wearing under the suit, I dunno.

Also, I hate to be the one to point this out, but the black-on-black leather and careful styling of both pant and jacket are …ah… pretty darn sexy.

The boots you see are Royer Motocross boots, super vintage and in great condition. They zip (open and close) and lace up the instep (for fit). Size 12.

Everything you see here is for sale. Except the model, who is 6″ and 185lbs, for reference.

  • Two-piece Biker’s Paradise Leather and kevlar Suit = Stock #3148  $399
  • Royer Vintage Motocross boots = Stock #2841   $105

Thanks to Zak, who dropped by and inadvertently ended up modelling for me.

Alpinestars Boots from back in the day.

Okay, so people say “vintage” all the time. As far as I can tell, they say “vintage” when they mean “from 1990, because I was born in 1989, and so stuff from 1990 is, like, old.” Since I am, like, old, I’ll just say that…

00819 HotWheels Limited Edition Youth Race Pants

I found these hidden behind a rack of kid’s motocross gear.  Holy name brand, Batman! When you think of HotWheels, you think of teeny tiny wee race cars. Well, these are human-sized (youth-sized) pants, so don’t go thinking they’ll fit inside a teensy Hot Wheels…

01629 Teknic full leather suit

This is a size big and tall leather superhero suit. Nope, wait, I mean racing suit. Whether you’re racing a motorcycle or a longboard, if you and your ride should part ways on the track, you’ll be grateful for this protection from the slings and arrows of outrageous asphalt.

I’ve got a bunch of these type of one piece suits, but this one is my favourite.

After you check out what Teknic wants for its suits, drop by here and have a wee try-on.
