    Now this really hurts ..... the horror! the horror!

    However, I have to offer this to the Lounge first in some kind of noble attempt to keep it away from Japan.

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the Lounge I give you the real deal, Ace Cafe, Ton-up, the 59 Club, and oily rockers circa 1962. I give you an absolute classic amongst all classic British biker wear ..... a Belstaff Trojan!

    Made from IronHyde - a peculiar totally waterproof but somehow breathable indestructable rubberised PVC.

    This is the rockin' young man's Black Prince. It is totally original and as rare as rocking horse you-know-what! My Dad wore this on his Bonneville interchanging with an Irvin. This survived, the Irvin didn't.

    It has a Lightning zip with the C-stop. It comes complete with its zip out winter liner. It may yet come complete with a belt that I am trying to source.

    It is big and heavy. A 44 chest I think. I guess I will have to do measurements.

    Got a Triumph? a Norton? a Vincent? got your Lewis Leather boots? Got your white silk scarf? Now get your Trojan before I change my mind!!!




    (^^^ underarm brass mesh grommet to allow for breathability)






    This jacket is nigh on 50 years old and it is the real deal.... the inside shows dirt around the lower back - splashback from the road no doubt. The non-rubberised inside face of the collar does show some wear and fraying. The IronHyde itself is basically unmarked and probably will be in another 50 years - it is indestructable!

    I am going to ask £275 (plus p&P, paypal etc) for this piece of Classic British Bike history. The price maybe strong and reflects rarity, desirability and my reluctance to let it go. However, needs must. Unless I change my mind, in a week it will be listed on Ebay with a definite Japanese flavour.

    I thought I'd offer you classic British Bike nuts first crack at a legend!

    Wow. You don't see these every day. If I wasn't on a different sartorial tack...
