Hi there and welcome to Alex's Blog. This week I wanted to look at the current trend of retro motorcycle clothing and accessories. This retro trend seems to be hitting the motorcycling world hard with all of the brands getting in on the retro action. It's not hard to see why, retro clothing looks good on or off the bike and it's always nice to give a nod to our heritage and riders of yester year.
There is also a certain understated class to retro styled motorcycle clothing which could be another reason its proving to be so popular.
Here are just a few of the retro products that we have in stock that are best sellers:
The Frank Thomas OF01 open-face motorcycle helmet in matt black is classically styled yet has an ultra-lightweight Polycarbonate construction and a versatile removable peak and the option to attach a visor. The lining is fully removable and washable. This is only £39.99.
At the other end of the price scale the Bell Custom 500 RSD open-face motorcycle helmet costs £189.99 but with this extra money comes added finesse. The shell is fibre glass and the lining is premium quilted with a padded chin strap for added comfort. The retro design also gives a nod to Bell founder Roy Richter who formed his first helmet out of fibreglass and named it the 500. This pays homage to Richter's original design but with added modern twists.
The HJC FG-70S Vintage Flat Black open-face motorcycle helmet is constructed from advanced Kevlar and Fibreglass Matrix Composite weave shell and has versatile fixings for added extras such as a visor or a peak as well as Silvercool interior and drop down sun visor. The Vintage Flat Black design with contrast stitching and orange interior and subtle retro HJC branding all make this a fantastic retro helmet. This is £159.99.
The Caberg Ghost Iron motorcycle helmet is exclusive to J&S Accessories Ltd and not only carries off the retro styling with an original metallic iron colourway but this doubles as an open-face helmet AND as a closed-face helmet. This also comes with Pinlock, lightweight tricomposite shell (Fibreglass, Kevlar and carbon) removable and washable lining and a removable nose shield which makes this in to an open-face helmet. This highly versatile retro helmet is £249.99.
The great thing about the BKS Tornado WP Motorcycle boots are that they wouldn't look out of place off the bike yet give you everything you need such as added protection, triple stitching in vulnerable areas, a waterproof membrane, for motorcycling. These are only £99.99.
The Dainese Street Biker D-WP black anthracite motorcycle boots are a casual styled boot with a retro twist. These are CE approved with a waterproof membrane and can be worn on or off the bike. These are £139.99
The BKS Jack 0615 leather motorcycle gloves are a short perforated retro styled glove with added protection for only £39.99. Ideal for summer.
For only £19.99 you can get a Spartan Classic Leather WP glove in brown. These are waterproof with a classic retro styling and elastication at the cuff and Suede on the palm.
The Frank Thomas B5 leather motorcycle jacket again can be worn on or off the bike and has a rather fetching tartan lining. This is £219.99 and has quilted leather detailing and classic touring styling.
At £249.99 the BKS London Vintage leather motorcycle jacket has the classic retro combination of brown and cream with removable CE approved armour and premium leather construction.
The Frank Thomas Suede Stripe leather motorcycle jacket is £229.99 and features a more muted brown colourway, CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows, a removable thermal liner and classic styling.
Until next time, stay safe,
