SOLD - 1960s Bates Easy Rider Type Cafe Leather Jacket - 44M
I have my 1960s Bates Cafe Racer leather jacket with Easy Rider styling up for sale to help pay some bills. This 44M jacket has a nice teal leather chest with rare white sleeves and racing stripe accented with red leather and killer red and aqua alternating stripes on the sleeves. Main zipper is a conmar as well as the slash pocket zippers and the lower hand pocket zippers. It is rare on a 60s Bates jacket to find both slash pocket zippers and lower zipper pockets as the lower pockets were an added option. All zippers work perfectly but one of the lower front zipper pockets is missing the conmar pull. Sleeve zippers are Talons and work great. Golden stain lining is in perfect condtion and Bates racing flag tag is in awesome shape, reading 44M. Measurements are: 22" from armpit to armpit, 18.5" from shoulder to shoulder, 24.5" from shoulder to sleeve cuff, and 28" from back of collar to waist hem. Overall jacket condition would be an 8 / 10. Leather is in great shape throughout and could use a little bit of leather cream. A bit of the teal leather coloring has transfered onto the white at the armpit area. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the jacket at email@example.com.
