Sold on eBay: Vintage Motorcycle Club Vest “Spokesmen, Vermilion Ohio” for $898.99

Vintage Motorcycle Club vests have been popping up all over eBay. I love seeing them and I always love keeping tabs on the sales prices across the auction houses. On this vest, the Levi’s label looks to have been ripped out a long time ago. These old school Levi’s jackets can take a beating and this one is no exception. The denim has aged beautifully. This is a great piece and at just under $900, it’s seems right at retail value.

Here are the details:
