    Aero designed their Board Racer, I think, as a racing shirt. Part of the description states "The back has a double kidney panel and is cut to fit close to the torso, to achieve this we've had to use a centre back seam, quadruple stitched for extra strength, which follows the contours of the wearers backbone. We are aware that a centre back seam isn't to everyone's liking so we are offering the option of a one piece upper back but one should be aware that this will compromise the close fit of the jacket."

    Obviously if no center seam is used it seems a back yoke would be preferable to break up the one-piece back look that would be more aesthetically pleasing than no back yoke at all. I have always been intrigued with the concept of Aero's Board Racer as an alternative to their Cafe Racer. Anyhow the complete description of Aero's BR is here:

    I personally prefer no yoke, although if I'm going for a two-tone jacket, then yoke it is (in a contrasting colour).

    It’s actually a heavily modified Aero Sunburst.
    Probably my most comfortable jacket to be honest.
    Original post about it here;

    Maybe me? I think Ton had more than one black Aero CR; I bought (I think) his first one, which was too tight on him. I can't recall offhand whether it has a yoke or not, but if it does, then the one pictured above could be mine. I meant to check on this last night, but had too much going on to get to it. So many jackets, so little time...

    The one I sold you isn't the one pictured...yours doesn't have a back yoke. This one went to a member here in Colorado. I also sold one to an ebay member : oldtoyshanger.
