Let’s continue the pursuit of vintage motorcycle club vests and apparel with this one. It’s a great M.C. vest that sold on eBay back in November. The actual posting has expired so I don’t know the name of the seller or any specific information about the vest but it needed to be featured because of it’s rough patina and unique whipstitching. Looks to be home made too. Here’s all the information that I could gather….

“This Indian Chief sterling silver belt buckle, with full-feathered headdress, was inspired by Chief Red Wolf, a friend of Edward Bohlin. This design was first created prior to World War II. The Indian buckle is featured in Sterling Silver and measures 2 1/2″ wide by 2 5/8″ tall. It is made to fit a 1 1/2″ belt. Stamped Edward Bohlin Sterling Hollywood, CA on back.
This Buckle is authentic and the real thing. I know you will enjoy this Buckle just as I have.

Time magazine just released a great article about the historic day in pop music when the Beatles made their first appearance on Ed Sullivan. It’s hard to believe that 60% of American televisions were tuned in for the performance on February 9th 1964. Check out the classic photos from the show below.
Time also put together a short video entitled “A Rare Look at the Beginnings of Beatlmania” worth a look:
This vintage Harley Davidson jersey shirt popped up on eBay sometime last week and sold at auction with 15 total bids. 5 bills is no surprise for this piece. Really great condition for it’s age, seems this jersey is hardly worn.
In November 1935 Benny Goodman accepted an invitation to play in Chicago at the Joseph Urban Room at the Congress Hotel. His stay there extended to six months and his popularity was cemented by nationwide radio broadcasts over NBC affiliate stations.
This Christmas why not listen to the full radio broadcast from December 23, 1935…
My friend John Dilbone sent this over to me. Sptifire 944 is an excellent documentary of pilot John Blyth’s account of his crash landing in 1944 and it documents his seeing the video of the event for the first time some 60 years later….
“In 2005, an 83 year-old World War II pilot views 16mm footage of his 1944 Spitfire crash for the first time.”
An excellent 1930’s vintage shawl cardigan sweater from West Point recently sold on eBay for $1,677.99. It’s a fine example of that classic cardigan style. While I’ve been looking for one like this for my own torso this winter season, I don’t know if my wallet would be too happy about dropping the 17 bills needed to purchase this one. It is beautiful. Have a look…
