    Same here, but I assume. because of the included 36", that the 38" really is just that (as a regular 38 is usually 40 or 41 inches. I was fooled a few times by that and had to resell. What a pity, though.

    Anyone here confident that road rash can be covered/blended?

    Yes you can. I was knocked off my 2006 35th Anniversary Dyna back in 2012 by a 75 year old Catholic priest
    ( He must have guessed I was "lapsed" !) 100% "failure to yield" on his part ( Automatic licence driving a manual !!)
    Anyhow I am skittled down the bitumen on my back wearing my west Australian made "Eastman Luftwaffe" copy.
    Black Goat the hide. Low speed bingle but the jacket was well scuffed nonetheless.
    Bike was a cosmetic mess , he somersaulted it onto the median strip ! motorcycle repaired by me , took 3 months.
    Jacket came up 99.9% using a kids shoe treatment . KIWI KUDS SCUFF STUFF. From the supermarket.
    I treated the whole jacket of course , not just the scuffed area.
    This photo was taken of that jacket today.

    The California makers made many of the most interesting jackets. I Love the Taubers stuff. This Taubers half-belt is in my deep closet. Hope the pictures show.

    I have owned several of this style jacket with Fieldmaster, Oakbrook, labels. Most were in Steerhide. I am convinced these were Made by Appalachian Tanned and Tailored. The same jacket appears with their label. Late 50s early 60s. This is one I owned
