Leather boys run Sunday 2nd November.
We met outside the old Merton film studios then onto Newlands caff where Mark abandoned the run due to heavy rain, though I had ridden 130 miles round trip and was soggy wet by the time I got back to Hi-Star base.

This is my second purchase from HiStar. The first purchase a few years back was a superb condition Lewis leather jacket, and the latest this Aviakit 1957 Bronx is a real gem, fully authentic in every detail.
I would highly recommend anyone considering a purchase to buy from this great guy, as if I had held off this beauty in the photo I would more than likely never get another one, certainly not all original.
All the best to you all and Hi-Star keep Biking.
