leather vests motorcycle
Yamamiya Toshiaki in/at Silver Moon in his motorcycle jacket
 Here's the black motorcycle vest I handmade for Toshi to be worn over his black leather jacket. Making it fit amounted to making the arm holes extra large. Soon after viewing my web site and ordering this vest - Toshi (Toshiaki Yamamiya) from Niigata City, Japan visited me at my home where he seen a pair of braided leather chaps that go with this. He wanted a vest with big arm holes that would fit over his black leather motorcycle jacket. Before I had a chance to start making it, he announced that he was coming to the USA and would like to stop in Bemidji to see me. On May 17, 2002 he arrived. Besides visiting my shop and us exchanging gifts, Toshi and I traveled to and through Itasca State Park the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Accompanying us was Billy Bush, a Native American friend of mine and a long time resident of the White Earth Indian Reservation. Along the way we stopped at Bemidji Woolen Mills where owner Bill Batchelder gave us a nice tour of his store and products. 
 The color of this leather vest is black and is a lot nicer than it looks in this picture. The vest leather and the braiding leather that I use are the same leather. 
 I don't have a picture of Toshi in his black leather jacket with his vest on. Here's a picture of him that he sent me so I could see the motorcycle jacket we were speaking about through email.
