    50 quid is starting bid, but definitely worth watching.

    Oh, right. Didn't see but either way, I don't think it'll go for much. These shearling coats that aren't any major brand usually sell for peanuts and this one is particularly nice. Lol, coincidentaly, it seems to be the closest match to the "bomber" jacket Tom Hardy's wearing on that photo that every eBay seller is using to sell their crappy fake.

    That single panel back is impressive.

    100% agree. I had one, flipped it as soon as I could. Thin, light, flimsy cowhide on these. Awful, really. Stay away! For good HD racer look to black one-pocket horsehide or steerhide versions. Too bad there is no good brown version, but that's life.

    Thanks-I just happened to spot it as an off-shoot of looking at something else.I probably associated "Sixties" as being of reasonable quality.

    The HD Sportster and the one that came after the jacket in the link you posted are all good quality pieces, the latter one being made by Brooks but it's just that I heard many times this particular one sucks. It looks nice, I even like the seam extending over the pockets thing but the quality is apparently abysmal.
