    So I recently stumbled upon a few calls that are on the way and I wanted to share the story. The main character is absolutely stunning (in pics) it should arrive tomorrow. So a highway patrol officer was issued a chp jacket in the early 50s. He had an accident to pass away. His wife held onto his jacket for over 50 years. When she passed her family held an estate sale. An (old) biker chick scored the jacket, she got it just because she knew it was nice. She never did anything except tuck it away. That old biker chick is now in her 70s and decided to sell it. She actually sold it to a guy in California. So this guy was asking me questions about a jacket I had for sale. We talked for a few days and then he told me he settled on another jacket and sent pics. It was this cal and I was blown away. This guy while waiting on his jacket cut his hand pretty bad on a saw. He had to get bandaged up (it looked like a cast). So with a injury that was preventing him from riding he out of the blue offered me the jacket. Measurements
    Chest 23
    Shoulder 19
    Sleeve 26
    Back 25
    I'm hoping it fits spot on, if not to classifieds it goes.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    You're one lucky fellow! This jacket is amazing! Wear it in good health.
    And If you ever want to pass it to someone else, for any reason, please remember me!

    Quite a story! That will fit me... I have a center-zip Cal already, but I don't think I could say no to that one if it were on the market.

    I will keep you guys updated for sure. There is also another cal but it's not as in good condition, it's a cross zip. I will update all progress, pics, and future developments.

    Nice jacket, though it might be cursed. The first guy to wear it died, the second cut his hand.

    Ah lol, wow, I have been finding some gems for sure I was telling my wife that last night. Now Terry Mitchell is the grandad of the leather jacket world, he's a legend so he's still the one giving (or concealing) the secret formula to acquire kik a$$ jackets.

    Update: so I was really looking forward to the cal in the pics. So unfortunately I'm not keeping or able to sell it either. After many messages the jacket has been sent right back to the seller. I still got one out of the deal but how can I enjoy it after the let down from losing the other?
