Hi Gial, This jacket was given to me by a friend who road motorcycle with. I pulled this out of storage and decided to start using this great jacket when riding my Harley. The jacket fits me perfectly other then the musty smell. I love the jacket and want to make good use of it as my dear friend has past. Any help with finding out when this jacket was made and also any suggestions on how to remove the musty old smells from the leather would be appreciated. Thank you

Thank you for the response, I believe this jacket is from the 80s or 70s. The jacket. My friend was in his late 60s when he past over ten years ago. The jacket has the tag on the coin pocket which make me believe its from the 80s Then there is the neck label and zipper Talon that’s more consistent to the 70s. Please take a look at these photos or give me any direction to help with determining the year this jacket was manufactured. Thank you
