Great thanks, good ideaFor a Cafe Racer, I think I would go with a #8 as a compromise. Should be plenty sturdy and not as clunky as a #10, although I like the #10 as a replacement for the other Aero offerings. A RIRI would be a good choice.
When were these C&C #10 zippers used?I personally like the old school look. However, a nice #10 add quality to a jacket.
Here are some examples of a CR with # 10 C&C zipper.

In true honesty, You can rock a nice CR for a fraction of the "premium" makers...
When were these C&C #10 zippers used?
A #8 zipper is a good compromise for the smaller size jackets, perhaps 38 and below. My original zipper on my size 42 Sheene failed within the first year, * and I had Allan replace it. I was going to get a #8, but he said it needed a #10. So, that's what he put on it. Have had no problems since–and don't anticipate any.I guess it has to do with the size of the jacket too, perhaps size #10 zip might workon size 42 jacket visually but would be overwhelming for size 36, I never have #5 ykk fails on me, but #8 would still work on my size visually depending on the shape of its slide puller too, personally I like paperclip puller or D ring puller and leather tab as they naturally hang and not sticking out at weird angle in the case of slanted positioned zip.
