After being in business for 50 years in Framingham MA, Walter Dyer closed their factory and stores but l still have one of their jackets left to sell in excellent like new condition is this size 54 cafe racer Motorcycle jacket coat. Please check the measurements and photos. This jacket is made of a very heavyweight soft cowhide in black supple leather.
The Cafe Racer leather jacket design that became mainstream in the 1960's, was developed in England. As soldiers were returning home after WWII they caught the bug of souping up older, prewar motorbikes. These motorcycles were raced between local pubs and cafes which created the need for a streamlined, minimalist leather racing jacket. Traveling at times in excess of 100 MPH was a fairly dangerous proposition on the roads that were more like trails at the time. Heavy horsehide and of course a strong main zipper added a certain level of protection for these speed happy daredevils. One would imagine there were wagers made and records set during these early cafe racing days.
