The Sportster Motorcycle Jacket emerged in the 1920s as an aviator and military styled garment with a new purpose, but developed its own look and meaning as the century went on. Jackets like the men's "Cycle Champ" and the women's "Cycle Queen" released by Harley Davidson in the 1940s became fashion icons.
Our Sportser Motorcycle jacket has a center front Talon nickel finish zipper and a distinguishing snapped down, short mandarin style collar. There are two front pockets with zipper enclosures, a zipper chest pocket on the left front and zipper at the bottom of the sleeves. Like all traditional aviation jackets, it is constructed with a one-piece back and two-piece sleeve. Our stock jacket is made of black drum dyed (3.5 oz) horsehide. A diamond shape quilted lining with inside pocket provides padding and warmth. Attention to the smallest details, like an embossed leather label, will take you to the past. As with all of our leather jackets, we offer affordable custom options, so you can get the jacket YOU envision. Some of the classic modification to the "Sportster" are: zipper side panel with tab adjustments, button front, second layered sleeves and modified pockets. Although the stock jacket is made in black horsehide, we can make it in horsehide (russet, seal brown, or vintage), goatskin (medium brown, seal brown, or vintage), and in limited-edition calf suede, 3.5-4.0 oz, vintage taupe color; a true classic.

Dear Mr. Dover,
I received the custom ‘Sportster’ jacket today and it fits like a glove. I’m 6’5”, 215 lbs. and have a difficult time finding a good looking leather jacket that fits me. In 2001 I ordered a custom G-1 made of horsehide (against the advice of Shaul because of the weight and stiffness). Over the years I have worn this jacket in all types of extreme conditions and it has held up beautifully and served me well. The horsehide seems to be just about indestructible and, over the years, has broken in nicely. I sent my old G-1 in to have the knit cuffs and lining replaced and decided to order the ‘Sporster’ in horsehide. The custom jacket is a perfect fit and of excellent quality as the G-1. The quilted lining is very comfortable. I’m looking forward to breaking this baby in (I forgot the squeaky sound of new horsehide!). I already know I’ll love this jacket as much as the G-1.
Thanks again for producing such an excellent quality jacket. Your attention to detail and custom fit is unsurpassed!
Wow what a custom made jacket...

I don't know which category of jacket to put this in but I think this is closest. I had Shaul make me a Custom 50'ls Halfbelt in Vintage Brown HH. I wish I could show you how spectacular this jacket looks. And the vintage horse is soft as a baby's butt right out of the box. You don't have to go to England to get a fine HH jacket. The only thin different in this jacket from the one above is no zips on the side pickets, extra stitching on the sleeves, custome liner, the halfbelt and side pulls of course and an A2 type collar!
This jacket is fantastic I hope he took pics and will post them as a option for all looking for fine custom made leather.
