    Pit to Pit 24 inches
    Shoulder 19 inches
    Sleeves 26 Inches
    Back Length 26 inches

    This jacket is nicely broken in but still very fresh. It is made of Horween 3 oz. horsehide, SBs counterpart to Aero’s CLX, but this one is from a very lucky batch. The dark brown is shining through under the black, it's actually hard to tell whether it's black or very dark brown at first glance. It looks amazing.

    I picked it up from this forum last year essentially unworn and only wore it sporadically during the season. I really like the “teacore” affect, and weight of the horween as well as the cord pocket bags, and tartan lining. It has 2 front hand warmer pockets, 1 zipped chest pocket and 2 snap interior pockets.

    Time to move this on as I just have too many jackets and sadly have to part with some.

    PayPal F to F $460 US. plus shipping ($15 +- CONUS)
    or
    $480 on the bay. (lots of pictures)

    From Simons Bilt web page:

    Based on an iconic vintage design the Roadster is our signature style. The simple design of the Roadster makes it suitable for all occasions whether its for tearing around country lanes on your motorbike or socialising with your friends.

    Hey Jones - nice one - what is the front length - from the start of the zip where it meets the collar to the bottom hem?

    Jonesy, if you possibly decide to sell your Himel A-1 Heron (which has a bit too short sleeves for you) - I'd take it immediately, without any hesitations. Seriously.

    Hey Seb.
    I’ll check it when I get home this evening. It’s a fairly boxy cut, and drapes nicely over my belt.

    Very nice photo, but his sleeves could be a couple inches longer))
    The boots look superb!

    With arms bent like that, the sleeves pulling over the wrists like that is perfectly normal. They'd have to 30" otherwise. That's a beautiful jacket, Jonesy.

    Thanks but that’s not me, it’s a photo from Himel’s web page.

    Nope, the boots are gorgeous.
    Short sleeves look quite nice on the photo above mainly because of short trousers which are turned up purposely short to show such gorgeous boots)))
    All in all that photo is very cool to my taste, reminds "bum" style from The Great Depression period.
    After looking at the photo above can't stop thinking all day round today about a very nice song from that period (like this song very much):

    Btw, Simmons Bilt Roadster above is a very nice jacket too, but it's a little bit too big & roomy to me. Someone is definitely goin' to have a nice bargain with this jacket over here!

    I bought a very nice jacket from Australia last year. It wasn't cheap to ship.
