Unknown 1960s Leather Motorcycle Pants

Vintage 1960'S Motorcycle Black Leather Pants

The pants bear no makers label, but are believed to be from the 1960s based on the zippers. Those are Talon at the crotch and Ideal at the pockets and ankles. Pants feature a built-in belt. Heavy duty snaps, grommets and rivers. Also has belts around the calfs. Those belts are attached on the back of the leg and free around the front. Pants are unlined with black poly cotton pocket linings. Believed to be top quality steer hide, but possibly horse.

I was hopeful these would be identified as custom Langlitz Leather or Buco pants, but have found little to support either. If anything the hardware used disqualifies them from being Langlitz as another collector told me. If they look familiar please let me know.

 

Vintage 1960s Motorcycle Patrol Jacket ~size 42~ Cal Leathers Style

Vintage 1960s Motorcycle Patrol Jacket ~size 42~ Cal Leathers Style.

This thick black heavy leather patrolman’s jacket is perfect for those who ride. Unfortunately this jacket has no labels or tags to help define its history, but I can assure you it’s the real deal. Badge holder, Serval zippers, heavy weight leather. It would be really easy for me to say this jacket is horsehide, which I very well might be, but with out a tag to prove it, I’ll stop short of that claim. I don’t have the expertise to say for certain. I have some jackets in my collection marked horsehide and others that are not and depending on the tanning process they can be very similar.

This jacket has a nice black satin liner in near perfect shape. Two had pockets and one inside pocket both lined with heavy cotton. Side lacing for a custom waist fit. Interestingly it is void of belt loops around the waist. Has snaps for a fur collar mount and black shearling lining the zippered wrists to keep the cold out.

Really nice shape for its age. a couple off-black spots near the badge holder. Visible if you’re looking for them. Also a little wear around the insides of the cuffs.

No size tag, but measures out to about a 42. See measurements below.

24″ pit to pit (sides flare out in the pits)
21″ across below the pit
20″ shoulder to shoulder
18.5″ pit to cuff
