The Real McCoy’s J-24 Moto
Emphasizing TRC’s tireless fixation for detail, everything on this moto screams authentic all-American heritage. I’d love to say that this sort of painstaking recreation is a rarity, but as you’re all aware this is sort-of-maybe par for the course in Japan.
There’s the genuine TALON zippers (not licensed replications mind you, actual TALON zippers from the eponymous Meadville manufacturer) that adorn reinforced and mottled horsehide leather. Then of course, there’s the fact that this is a faithful replication of one of BUCO’s enduring styles from the 1950’s.
It should be noted that production - at least internationally - of the original garment has been discontinued, so short of trawling second hand clothing consignments this is the best option for attaining what is an essential piece of American clothing heritage.
