This Indian cafe racer has been on Etsy for a while and given the price it’s sure to remain there. It’s too small for me but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these jackets. They have an original look with that stitched front pocket and if you look closer you can see that the main and sleeve zippers have the piping or welts that some old J100’s had and that the Kensington and ELMC J100 use today and it looks like a French seam on the shoulder yoke and the sleeves

Yes looks like the same. More info was in the thread which Jmax kindly linked above.
This might have been an add for the unlined Indian racing shirt.

I had one in size 36 before I sold it. Amazing pattern and fit, but FYI, the shell isn't real leather - it's more like synthetic sofa leather. If you examine a cut edge of the leather inside one of the pockets, you'll see the shell is made of two layers stuck together, the inner layer is some sort of textile, and the outer layer is some sort of platicy pseudo leather. The color also wears off pretty easily to a shiny white surface. It's a shame because these are really cool looking jackets, but I would definitely not go above $100 given the materials.
