Vintage BUCO Black Leather J-23 Motorcycle Horsehide Jacket D Pocket Zippers 40

You are bidding on a "Vintage BUCO" leather jacket. This is probably from the late 1940s or early 1950s era.....very "James Dean"!! This jacket is in a great sought after size of "40" on the tag by the manufacturer. The tag also states that this particular jacket is made of the thick durable "horsehide" leather. After doing some research on this jacket, I believe it is the "J-23" style jacket by BUCO.....apparently the only difference between this one and the J-22 is the lining. The lining in the J-23 is a quilted NYLON and has processed WOOL inside the lining for warmth......the tag is still attached and pictured for verification. Overall the the jacket is in very good condition. All of the snaps are in working order.....the bottom right front snap which holds the belt is the only one that is a little fragile and the patina on the jacket snap is starting to pull away from the leather. The D-Pocket zipper is in working order.....the side seam is coming apart, which I have also pictured. The zippered slit pocket above the D-Pocket....the zipper is broke. The zippers are also broke on the sleeve cuffs and the main one up the center front.....the actual fabric on the zipper has dried over the years and that is what has split away from the leather, otherwise, they still might be working. This jacket has the side/back zippered pockets for the passenger to use for warmth while riding. The pull string on the center front zipper I have safely pinned it to the zipper so that the fringe pull was still attached for zipper replacement. I will leave this decision up to the new owner, whether they want to have them replaced or just keep jacket in the original condition. The original belt is no longer with the coat.

Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility.
Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.”

Payment must be recieved via Paypal within (7) days of auction's ending, or the winning bidder will be considered "late" in making payment. As recommended by the NEW Ebay policy, on the (4)th day, if payment has not yet been received, an unpaid item claim with Ebay will be filed; although, you still have the FULL (7) days to make payment. This is what Ebay considers a "friendly reminder" to make the payment by the (7)th day and there isn't any strikes against the winning bidder for having this done. However, on the (8)th day after the winning auction is "not paid", the unpaid item reminder will be closed, and then there will be a strike against your Ebay ID. If there are circumstances beyond your control, please contact me prior to bidding on the item, and we should be able to work out a plan that is mutually beneficial to both parties involved.

We sell a lot of vintage pieces and they will have wear consistent with age and being previously worn or used. Vintage items are RARE and UNIQUE to the era that they are from, and not reproductions that are out there today. I always include alot of pictures for detailed inspection by you....PLEASE look carefully at what you are bidding on. You will receive EXACTLY what is pictured.

Returns will only be accepted if there has been an oversight by myself in the items description or measurements due to human error. All of the measurements are given and must be checked by the potential buyer and compared to something you currently own that fits you, if this is not done, this is NOT an acceptable reason for return and the return will NOT be accepted. Contact must be made by the buyer within (3) days of receipt of the item and must be mailed back by day (7) in the original condition and box from which it was received. Customer satisfaction is a priority and will be met if all is followed.

After receipt of payment, your item will be shipped within 72 hours. Your item will always be shipped the fastest way possible, based on the shipping amount charged and the distance the item will need to travel. We love to combine shipping for our customers and will make note of the discount within the auction listing or via email if for some reason it isn't included inside the auction description. The combined shipping rate will vary on the items being offered because of weight and size of box being shipped.

Worldwide customers will also benefit from combined shipping based on weight and size of the package being shipped and should contact us prior to bidding. Worldwide Customers must contact seller prior to bidding for the shipping rate to their specific country. Any item shipping International with the value of $50 or more, will be required to have Priority Mail shipping which includes insurance and a tracking number on the package. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS.
