via Instagram http://ift.tt/1VARwhCHuge thanks to Rachael @heavyleathernyc for making this killer replica Bates racing jacket for me. The original one on the left was my dad's. It's so old and stiff it could stand on it's own. The new one fits like a glove, I can't wait to start breaking it in. It'll be prefect for the flat tracking I plan on doing this year.

Well you make yourself a bushing and start drilling some big holes. The mile muncher is getting some changes this year...
