Bates Cafe Racer-style Jacket, size 38 tall, 1970s vintage, near mint.

They had this jacket made for them by Bates of California. They were slim, tall, and had long arms. And lo, they ordered it in the black and the red, with a racy stripe running down the arm, in the way of so many nice cafe racer jackets. It was fashioned with loving care, with Talon zippers, a shiny 70s liner, a personalized tag for Ronnie, and a fleecy warm liner that zips handily in and out, according to the temperature on that particular day in our far, far past.
