I think @Monitor must have been the first to spot this one. He signaled it in the Finds and deals thread. It was my size, so I made an offer and it is now mine.

Wow, that looks very nice indeed. Leather, hardware, even the slight rope-looking shoulder that is unique to 30s-40s German leather jackets is there.

Never heard of them before.

A quick search yields a local newspaper article with the same address and phone as given by Google - and a defunct website, looks like they own the domain but don't use it.

I'm digging up this topic because it interests me a lot.
The thread is a bit old and if some of you have cyclist jackets (reproductions or originals), do not hesitate to share pictures.
Here is my cyclist jacket. It is a very accurate reproduction of an original model, made in France.

Thank you nightandthecity.
It is a French craftsman who makes this jacket. The person who takes care of the distribution is no longer active on this forum, but if anyone is interested, I can provide an email to contact him.
