Any riding gear manufacturer can create up a “retro” jacket. But only those who have been around for a while can offer a 70s design pulled straight from their own back catalog. Goldtop from England has been making motorcycle apparel and accessories since 1951, often with an eye on classic cafe racer style. The new 1975 Lancer Jacket is a take on their ’75 Scuftuf design but this time around it comes complete with modern protection.
The double-breasted 1975 Lancer Jacket has an asymmetric zip across the chest. The design overlays a wide leather panel for increased insulation against the wind. Built from 1.4mm thick cowhide it’s lined in quilted blue satin. Brown and black suede panels at the collar and wrists add comfort. The main zip is industrial-grade, hand-polished, and features an AERO pull. The zippers on the pockets and adjustable cuffs use traditional ball zips. The band collar, diagonal pockets, and zippered cuffs give the 1975 Lancer jacket a distinct look that draws on both cafe racer and classic motorcycle jacket style, blending the two perfectly.
The Goldtop 1975 Lancer jacket offers reliable safety through its abundant use of leather and CE Level 1 armor in the shoulders and elbows. The jacket can also accommodate an optional CE Level 2 back protector. This classically styled riding jacket is built to last, and it comes from a company that’s been at the riding gear game for close to 70 years.
