My hats off to the hero that chose this pair of turquoise Bates MX leathers. He must have looked bitchen blazing across the desert.
The funny thing about swap meet finds is that normally there is no history with the item. As is usually the case I have no idea where these have been or what they went through over the last 40 years. What I do know is that I found them and brought them here to my warehouse which is exactly 3 minutes from where these leathers were made.
