1950's Gold Label Brooks Brown Cafe Racer Jacket, Brooks 511 Road Warrior, Brooks Leather Sportswear, Detroit Michigan

$600.00
This is the first model of motorcycle jacket Brooks released. In 1959 the 511 Road Warrior was a call to offer up a different take on the biker jacket. Instead of creating the "Perfecto" style developed by Schott, Brooks decided to manufacture the cafe racer, which at the time was a popular style in Europe. It was sleek and streamlined and it had more of a racing style and less of the gritty biker style with multi-pockets and an angled zipper.
