    Hey Peter, sounds like you need to come ride in Arizona again. No snow, mid 50sF. in central AZ (Prescott area).
    Regards, RIC.

    Pete, good to hear from you. A September meet-up sounds like fun. Let me know if you can make it to sunny AZ.

    Anybody recognize this label/maker? The paper label looks like it says MQ500, so I thought maybe Johnson Leathers? They did not recognize the label, though.
    [​IMG]The jacket is a really nice CHP-style design cross-zip, even including the lambs wool sleeve lining at the wrists. The shoulders and elbows have leather quilting. I am also impressed by the leather-lined hand warmer pockets and internal chest pocket. It seems like maybe someone took their favorite features from a bunch of designs and meshed them all together in this jacket.

    Here are the standard front
    [​IMG]
    and back pics. The quilted shoulders took some getting used to, but I am really liking them.

    I’m becoming a fan of the leather-lined inner chest pocket
    [​IMG]
    and kidney protector

    Also, is it just me, or does there seem to be brown wearing through, rather than your typical grey?

    Very cool jacket you picked up there! I say its a rebranded Cal. A crossover of a LAPD body with Cafe Racer sleeves.

    I wish Vanson’s Arro has larger arms (wait what??) that’s right. I cannot slip it on, my arms barely squeeze in without any layer

    Beautiful bike, I too love springers.

    I am amazed your 110 engine has lasted over 10 years. I had nothing but terrible luck with it. Good on you bud.

    That's a modified m-500 and it is most def Johnson Leathers. Alan and co made these for various shops that sported the shop label. I had one, with the "Worn Out West" label, it was far too small so I gave it away:

    Maybe a wee bit of luck plus meticulous maintenance , Synthetic oils twice every year , no hard revs from cold etc etc
