    Conditioning Leather

    I do not use pecards because it is not a good conditioner also, I believe it is bad for cotton thread. Remember, pecards is mainly a Waterproofer. Most leather conditioners use beef fat (tallow). I also used it in my formula. Skidmore's is basically the same combination of products I use...

    Scam Alert

    I have been scammed before. Ones in this forum and one time at the vintage jackets org. However, I feel you must roll with the punches. It is so pathetic that at their age, scammers, for a few dollars they sell their dignity. In true honesty, when you are a new poster, the burden of proof...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    Nice jacket. The zipper job is a deal braker for me. Max, the one you sold about 6 months ago is the very best value jacket I have seen in a very long time. Still hoping to see one around in that shape.

    The jacket looks nice. Contacted the owner yesterday. I did not get a good feeling about it. The measurements did not make sense to me. Will not take a chance anymore. Good luck to the brave ones...

    Bates style action back Vs. Aero style shoulder gussets

    The owners of the Cal Leathers do have the old patterns for many jackets they produce. I have been to the shop several times and have seen them with my own eyes. They even have patterns and original finish samples of interesting motorcycle garments very few people have seen.. They have also...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    Love the lining. Does anyone know where to get some of this lining? The jacket has seen lots of repairs. The zip has been terribly done several times which I hate because a good talon can do this by hand or by machine. Also, sleeves have been shortened not following the companies practices...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    Love the seller's name. Lol. I have rat terriers! The jacket is a very nice design with a super strong zip. If any one here buys it, I have the male zip to do the repair. This jacket looks like it has been to hell and back. But stills very nice.

    Max, I think you have seen the jacket. A member here has one also. Curiously, his does not have a label either. I will locate my jacket and will post images of it. I am still on the hunt for a black single pocket, white label HD. Like the one you sold several months ago. Can believe that I...

    Where to find Real McCoys Brown J100 (wtb)

    I got a padded CR Cal. Not the hard to find six panel one. The fine folks at Cal leathers confirmed it was legit. Also, I was informed that during the late 50 and though the 60s, some of the Cal leathers did not get a label. If you look at their sewing techniques, you can clearly identify...

    Where to find Real McCoys Brown J100 (wtb)

    Those white label Harleys were made with a very nice leather. Most of my Reeds were made out of the same leather as Harley or perhaps Harley's white label jackets were made by Reed? I know Brooks made most of the later ones. The leather that was being produced during that period is on both my...
