    Hi all,

    I'm selling my beloved Vanson Chopper due to a recent spine injury that left me with some medical expenses. The Comp Weight leather is, I would say about 3/4 of the way to fully broken in. The liner is in excellent condition, no rips or tears, but there are some small chalk marks on the inside left. All zips and snaps are in excellent working condition. The waist adjusters are also fully functional. Please see pictures for more detailed information. The jacket does not have any strange odors.

    Measurements are as follows (Approx.):
    Pit 2 Pit: 24.25 inches
    Sleeve Length (Measured along the curve): 25.5 inches
    Bottom Hem: Adjusts from Approx. 20 inches to 22 inches
    Back Length: 27 inches
    Shoulder: 20.5 inches

    I paid $849 dollars direct from Thurston Bros
    I am looking to sell this jacket for $500 Shipped in the Lower 48 United States Paypal F&F

    I’m sorry for your recent health issues. Hope all goes well for your recovery. Also for you to have to sell your prized Vanson, if I remember correctly your purchase of the jacket had great sentimental value to you. I believe it was your father, uncle or some other family member who wore a leather jacket and inspired your pursuit of this Vanson.
    Good luck with the sale and with your health.

    Thank you for the kind words. It was actually My grandfather who inspired the purchase of this jacket. He rode a motorcycle and wore a British style motorcycle jacket that had similar quilted padding that I grew up seeing him wear in India. That led me to purchase this Vanson. The original plan was to have this be my one and only leather jacket, but unfortunately sometimes things don't quite work out.

    Sorry!
    I saw the size in the title.
    So, this jacket is numeric sized, not alphabet?

    I sure can grab that measurement for you. The measurement from the base of the collar down to the bottom hem in front is approximately 21 inches. And yes, this jacket is numerically sized.
