    It pains me to sell this Aero Board Racer. It is by far one of the best leather jackets I have ever owned. Unfortunately, it no longer fits me comfortably across the shoulders as since getting this jacket I started working out and swimming again which has resulted in larger shoulders and a broader upper back. The jacket is in excellent condition and comes from a smoke & pet free home. It has a lifetime of wear ahead of it.

    $750.00 For sale in the US only. PayPal only.

    Thank you for looking and let me know if you have any questions. Sale is final. No returns.

    Nice jacket. You say the fit has become tight in the shoulders. Can you post the measurements of the shoulders, and the chest, so people might know if it would fit them? It also may be useful to confirm the length and sleeve length; what you ask from the maker and what you get are not always the same.

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I'll try and get the measurements up in the next day or so.

    Finally got around to taking some measurements. Please see below:

    Shoulder to shoulder : 17”
    Pit to pit: 20”
    Sleeve: 24.5”

    With the above measurements, is it safe to say that it fits more like a size 40?
