We got a good lead from Rivet Head (a really great spot to see excellent vintage photography and vintage work clothes) that a Kingston 100 percent wool original Indian motorcycle sweater/jersey was up for bid in an online auction. I was out of the running at a little under $200 (gotta figure in the shipping costs, right?), but I see the auction ended yesterday with a final bid of $359. Considering the condition of this piece of history and the quality of the garment, I am really surprised it didn’t go higher than that. The seller from NYC stated in the auction that he had several more vintage Indian pieces, but I’ll have to see if they come up in the near future. Me, I’d wear it once and then it would go into a glass vault. You just can’t buy this kind of stuff these days.
