When it comes to motorcycling, each type of riding has its unique style. Motocrossers gear up in multicolored jerseys. Sport bikers don one-piece racing suits. Harley riders favor chaps and fringe. For the most part, the clothing is new and easy to find. But when it comes to vintage motorcycling, riders are at the mercy of what has survived decades of wind, rain and occasional brushes with pavement. The result: slim pickings.
