One of the best Motorcycle Jacket styles of the 20th Century were the J21, J22, J23 and J24 styles from the design house of Joseph F. Buegeleisen of Detroit, MI. The company was better known as Buco. The J24 was hailed as the "coolest motorcycle jacket ever" by Rin Tanaka, motorcycle jacket historian and author of "Motorcycle Jackets - A Century of Design" published by Shiffer Books. Due to their popularity, vintage Buco Horsehide jackets fetch prices as high as $2000 or more on eBay and other auction houses and vintage boutiques. New "Buco clone" jackets are marketed at $1,200 (excluding belt) on other internet websites. While the Black Stallion is not an exact replica of the original Buco, we believe it captures the style, quality and detail of the original - and then some! Manufactured to our "Legendary" specifications by a New Jersey motorcycle apparel company rich in biker jacket history since 1928.
