Hey all

I was interested in the sticky with the suspect Bobber jacket and wondered if anyone knew a good way of identifying the model/name of a particular item. Google hasn't helped so far.

I've bought and sold a handful of jackets over the last few months trying to find the best one and have settled on 3 that are keepers. They've been a mixture of dealer and eBay buys and I haven't at any point questioned the items I've bought as they've all looked straight enough, the quality and weight of the leather feels good, the labelling poppers/zips all seem legit. However, it would be nice to put a name to the jacket I'm trying to sell at the moment. I have a local Rocket III riding buyer lined up (he's actually just put his order for the Rocket III TFC in lucky b*stard) but if it's not right for him will be relisting on Ebay and probably link to it here for my international bobber brethren.

Pic below for reference.

Cheers, Ed

I really like the look of that first jacket with the quilted shoulders. I have no idea how to tell whether a jacket is genuine Triumph or a knock-off though. Do both jackets have a Triumph manufacturing tag inside?

Hi ysolo

Yes, I would say the tags all look pretty good and the fact there is the original Knox tag for the armour and a bag of spares makes me pretty confident that it's genuine, or that the fakers have gone to such lengths that it is equal to the original.

Greetings,

Did you finalize the sale of that jacket yet? If not I'm wondering what size it is?

Cheers!

Afraid so Dan, it made it's way to someone on this forum.

I tried to amend my posts to show it's sold but struggled a little.

Sorry you missed out.

Scratch that, I actually sold this one to someone local, it was another I sold to a forum member.

I keep my eyes open for jackets so will post more for sale as I find decent opportunities.

Thanks. If you ever see one like that again in a size Large, I'm interested.
