1940/50’s 'californian' Motorcycle Horsehide Jacket Rare Style, California Label For Sale[DESCRIPTION]For your consideration is a1940/50’s California Motorcycle Horsehide Jacket. This is one of the most difficult to find and certainly most collectible "California" Label Motorcycle Jacket. The jacket is true to form and despite some distress on the leather, light discoloration (sun bleaching), and a few zipper issues which I will describe in detail, this jacket is simply awesome. There are no holes or tares in the leather.
Minor Issues: Some mild sun bleaching and visible wear around the shoulders, top back, sleeves and cuffs. The right wrist zipper is damaged and as you can see in one of the close-up photos, could easily be replaced. The front jacket zipper was replaced in the early 80's. Missing one waist tassel on the left side of the jacket. There are some holes in the interior lining (which is original and pictured) and the finally the Tag has become faded but as far as I can make out say's the following, "A Genuine Californian selected Horsehide, California Sportswear Co."
Measurements: Armpit to Armpit = 19.5"; Shoulder to Shoulder= 19.5"; Sleeve 23"
