You may well laugh you haven't seen my 80's fieldsheer two piece leathers in white, lime green and blue, with Kawasaki down the arms and legs. I'm saving them for the maiden voyage.lol.

Smashing ! Be sure to put a picture up when that happens.. :mrgreen: .

All adds to the occasion eh? I have an older genuine Kawasaki jacket just for when I get out on the KR..

Bought from Padgetts last year, they had lots of older style clothing in stock, unfortunately, a lot of the common sizes are NLA.

I have also recently bought (from Padgetts again but from their shop on he Isle of Man ) some 80s red/white boots to go with my RD500, picked up the 80s Marlboro paddock jacket for it a few months back, my Mrs and kids just take the piss when I wear them but I dont care!

Just had a look through my old bike gear, and found these beauties... :shock:

The Kwacker ones were from the 1970s, apologies for the Suzuki jackets, from the 1980s. Yes, they still all fit too!
I used to have a zip-up version of the green jumper too, but that must have got thrown out years ago.
