    For your consideration, offering this black Johnson Leathers Custom Cafe Racer. This jacket is in excellent condition save for one (or a few) flaw(s). It has a small cluster of pin holes in the leather on the upper left chest (above the chest pocket) from the previous owner who apparently, liked him some pins :oops: (see photo). It's really in fine shape except for the pin holes and I was going to wear it as is or perhaps throw a vintage patch on it but the size is a little big for me now that I've lost weight:cool:.

    This jacket was made by Johnson Leathers of San Francisco and it is a well constructed piece as is the case with most all Johnson Leathers items I have handled. There's a custom half "sliver" moon shaped slight extension added by Johnson Leathers to the back panel of this Cafe Racer making it slightly longer in the back than it would be otherwise (see photo). Heavy Duty Antique Brass YKK zippers all around and all function very smoothly. Black quilted lining is in great condition and the leather is in near perfect condition as well. It weighs 5.5 lbs.

    Seems to me to be a modern size 44 but the size tag is missing so please see measurements for best indication of fit.

    Measurements:
    Pit to Pit: 23"
    Shoulder to Shoulder: 20"
    Sleeve Length-Shoulder Seam Straight down to end of Cuff: 25"
    Back Length excluding Collar: 26.5"

    Asking $135 Shipped (within U.S.)

    Thanks for your interest.

    Seems more like a size 42. Are you sure about the pit measurement?

    Still available. Too many tire kickers.

    Sold to me. Watch this space, as it'll be back if it doesn't work out (although I hope that's not the case).

    Just received this, and it's a good fit. As mentioned above, it is more like a 42.

    I only wore this one a couple of times due to the warm climate here, so it's back up for sale at the same good deal I bought it for.
    I'd say it fits like a 42.

    Good morning,
    I'll take the jacket, if it is still available.
