    The Hunt for the Least Restrictive Leather Jacket

    I'm with you in that I'm sensitive to jackets that restrict and prefer the midweight leathers. I recently found a 40 year old Vanson Model A (heavy comp weight even) that was extremely broken in and faded and I'm amazed at how easily it wears compared to my other jackets. I've worn and owned...

    Model A was my guess as well. Thanks for clarifying.

    Stunning 1979/80 Comp Weight Vanson cafe racer, 44

    FS: $550 (NET) Shipped CONUS. Will consider international at additional expense. This one is pretty special looking and broken in perfectly but a hair too big and a bit too heavy for me. I prefer the midweight leathers for daily use. Since I don't ride, this one is wasted sitting in my closet...

    What is this Aero?

    It's a beauty and fits you perfectly! Looks like it would fit me as well ;). I should start looking at pre-owned CXL jackets. The new one I had was a bit too stiff for me to wear comfortably but they looks so nice.

    FS Aero Board Racer 44 black FQHH CXL

    Lovely images. I've always felt that pictures like these make all the difference for a sale. Clearly photography's a hobby and it shows.

    Fidelity Cafe Racer, Dark Brown, zip-in liner, Size 46. $150

    Good point. I was very surprised at the weight of the leather. I recently picked up a vintage Brooks cafe racer and this one is almost twice as heavy. Very substantial. Any idea how to date these jackets? This one could be 60’s or 90’s for all I know.
