Cowhide or Horsehide? Model number and date?
This size 42-44 fit killer Schott cafe racer has been lovingly... professionally... restored with a fresh satin lining (no lining zipper) cut and sewn to perfection and a massive LENZIP metal zipper. The back is detailed with "bi-swing" pleats from yoke to kidney panel and it carries buckle side adjusters with grometted tabs.
It's rock-solid, deep brown, carries a great patina, and shows just the right distress.
Sure looks and feels like horsehide with that distinctive horsehide distress and a larger bolder grain... plus it's stiff like horsehide.
Maybe most telling... it WEIGHS-IN AT 5lbs 2 oz!
ASKING FOR HELP WITH:
-Model # and production year? (Apparently discontinued)
-Did Schott make this model in brown horsehide... and possibly with a factory distress?
-If so... is this one of them?
