    Hi all

    Asking $200 shipped to CONUS

    Payment via PayPal. DM with questions offers etc.

    Picked this up and unfortunately was much bigger than advertised.

    The style strikes me as a longer-bodied Seven (aka board racer w collar). It even has the zip that ends several inches above the hem to allow for movement while seated.

    Leather is in great condition, a few marks here and there which are quite hard to see. You could likely clean them off, I haven’t tried any treatment.

    It strikes me as mid weight (definitely lighter than the leather on my black Bates cross zip) but overall jacket weight is about 5 pounds due in part to the length. Leather is pliable and drapes easily.

    Liner intact, no holes or rips. Very slight “old closet” smell.

    Zips all appear to be original Talon in good working order. Teardrop pulls for pockets and what looks like a typical rectangular #5 main zip.

    No size tag so please go off measurements.

    Chest: 23.5” (if pressed firmly to floor gets almost to 24”)
    Shoulder on back: 19.5/20”
    Length on back excluding collar: 29.5”
    Sleeve: 25”

    Heh thanks HM. I was really disappointed about the size. If only I didn’t look like a boy wearing his dad’s jacket when I put it on lol.

    Boy that's a nice jacket. Though as you say, you'd have to like 'em long. Do you happen to have front and back pics of you wearing it..?

    Busy evening, but photos at last. No great lighting but you can see the fit. I wore a thick cardigan to help fill out the jacket.

    For reference I’m 5’9” 175# with 40” chest.
