Up for sale is my black/red Dainese Racing Pelle Leather jacket sized 44 us/ 54 euro. (for a reference, I am 5'11 and was 185lbs when I bought the jacket)  I purchased this jacket late last season and love it, very comfortable for a sport bike rider and an excellent feel once it broke in.  Once summer hit though it became too hot for me to wear so I put it away in favor of my textile jacket. 

Now that it is cooling off I am ready to wear the jacket again.  Fortunately for me, I lost weight this summer, unfortunately I lost weight this summer and the jacket no longer fits me.  So I am putting the jacket up for sale so that I can find another jacket a size smaller.

The jacket has never been down and is in wonderful condition, I made it a point to clean and condition the jacket every couple of weeks using the Dainese cleaning kit.  The leather is free from tears or stains, all buttons and velcro are in good condition and work flawlessly as well.  The metal pucks on the shoulders have minor scuffs from scraping against the wall in my closet.  There is a very small nick in the back of the right hand elbow as well but is hardly noticeable (shown in the photos).

The only issue with this jacket is that the main zipper is starting to separate from the jacket itself.  It has only just split passed the metal clasp at the bottom of the zipper. (also shown in the pics).  The jacket can still be zipped up, you just have to be careful with it.  The zipper can be replaced at any reputable leather company for a decent price.   

New, this jacket cost me $599.99 plus tax ($648 after tax).  Used this jacket goes for $400 easily, knowing the zipper is a little tweaked though I am only asking $280 for the jacket, darn good deal for the jacket.  If it fit me I would just repair it and continue using it but I need something a little tighter.

Please feel free to email or call me with any questions you might have. (714) 905-4103
I do have class throughout the week so if I do not answer please leave a voice mail and I will call you at a reasonable time when I am available.

I actually need to go down two sizes (to a euro 50).  I've lost about 15 lbs since I purchased this jacket.   Thanks for the offer though.

Fit does change between style of jackets, not by a whole lot but they do change.  The more aggressive the design the tighter the jacket seems to fit.  The Mugello is a sport-touring style jacket, like SV or YFZ style, the Racing pelle and other similar jackets are more aggressive, fit more for a tighter sport bike or for aggressibe riding.

Bump.  Still for sale, a couple of guys interested and looking at it later this week.  The sooner it's gone the sooner I can get a tighter fitting jacket for the winter.
