Looking to sell this stunning, true vintage Germany-made, motorcycle leather jacket. Among the nicest & most functional vtg European jackets that I've handled.
You're getting a class A piece in every possible regard and aspect.

TFL only price: $140 + Shipping. PP/FF.

★INFO★
Love this jacket, held on to it for a while but gotta accept it's too small for me - Very trim cut with high arm holes. Fits crazy sleek! Square-ish shoulders.

Made of tough leather & lined in thick moleskin. Features two horizontal zippered body pockets in addition to one deep flap pocket. Two inside pockets. Full action back. Hidden storm cuffs inside cuffs. Fully adjustable belt. And so forth...

★CONDITION★
Overall, very good and 100% functional condition. Issues that need to be pointed out are...
Main zipper is a replacement. Works without any issues.
Lining around storm cuffs is frayed at places (see photos). Doesn't affect anything.
Otherwise, as good as it gets. Pristine clean.

★MEASUREMENTS★
I would say it's basically a true size 38 but please mind the numbers below...
  • Chest width (P2P): 52 cm / 20.5"
  • Shoulders width: 42 cm / 16.5"
  • Waist width: 48 cm / 19"
  • Sleeve length: 68 cm / 26.5"
  • Back length: 64 / 25"

I'm here for all questions. Thank you for your interest.

Great jackets don't need to cost thousands. This one don't. And it's great. Really great. Not like when you buy something super expensive just 'cause it's hyped up to hell and then it turns out just great but not really any more great than great.

Man, looks great on you, @Marc mndt !! Marc helped me out getting this jacket. Really wanted it to fit but same thing.

Good lord that’s beautiful. I need to measure it up next to a kelso of mine. Might be a squeeze…really nice though

It really is beautiful and super functional. Leather is gorgeous, too.

really nice but I think chest would be a touch too large. Totally worth every penny.

It's a really, really high quality jacket. Considerably higher standard than Schott, Brooks, Fidelity, etc., etc., or even Aero or I dunno. Leather is nice to look at and thick and has that coating that make it seem like armor but the massively heavy lining is the most impressive. Everything is just a good level up over most vtg US brands I've handled or even those of today.

I often want to leave the house in this jacket and I put it on but nah, just too small. Armholes and all.
