I’ve got a Franken-head myself. Haven’t even looked at it in a decade. I think this summer I’ll hock it. I’m a pussy now and don’t have the balls or back to ride it. Need a front brake. The mini drum is purely decorative. And the best dog I ever had, Tank, died 5 years ago.

I’ll always comment on this, Tony.
If Knights rode choppers, they’d ride this.

My motorcycles haven't seen a race track in 6 years. broken shoulders, knees and old age, that'll get to ya eventually.

Total impulse buy. LL Dominator in "blue" horse. Bought via a German retailer, so somehow, that made me excuse the new prices...

Probably not my regular choice of trousers with this jacket, but just the ones I had on when the courier arrived...

This came with +2 inches on the regular OTR model, and boy am I glad it´s not shorter.

When I first saw the movie trailer it looked like the Sears d pocket but I could tell the leather didn’t look like that of a 80yo jacket. Now it’s all clear. Cool jacket nonetheless.

This is (one of) the 50s versions, I believe made by CSC. (Also in the classifieds)

For what it's worth- I don't think this jacket is too big for you- I think it's near perfect

That is an outstanding jacket and looks to fit perfectly. Enjoy.

Thank you!

I am very happy with the fit. I am more or less a bang on size 44 in LL’s OTR sizing, but I can always use one inch more in length.

When the seller advised that they specced the back at 27” I was worried that this would be too much. Turns out it wears itself away quite nicely.
I believe it wouldn’t work that well with a cross-zip, of course.

Really Jaunty jacket - the BLUE is a great color and the slacks/trousers work to bring deserved attention to a standout jacket.
