The Wax Rider Canvas Coat is inspired by Amanda's grandfather and early Harley Davidson® motorcycle club jackets. The rider coat pays homage to him, who commuted weekly from the Mohican Indian Reservation to weld for Harley Davidson® during the 1950's and 1960's. When you wear it, you are wearing a coat built to honor grandfather and his life. We built the coat with his characteristics and values. Resilience. Bravery. Honesty. Dedication. Strength. Durability. Toughness.
The coat is made of 10.10 oz. Army Duck wax canvas, custom Ginew® fabric by Pendelton®, custom quilted satin sleeve lining, custom Ginew® hardware, and features a modern fit. It features two front side pockets, two front chest pockets, and hidden embroidery under the collar. Each coat is sourced and constructed in the USA. Also available in Black.
Modifications from numerous Wisconsin moto-club jackets of the era have been incorporated into one coat. We slimmed the sides, lengthened the back, and extended the arms. The wax canvas material has been made for the US military by the same family for seven generations. Go ahead - try to wear it out.
