Leather vest inspired by the jacket worn by Peter Fonda in the 1969 film “Easy Rider”. An authentic legend, a must for movie lovers and old school Harley Davidson bikers.
It was July 14, 1969 when a film was released in American theaters that to many seemed an ambitious but hopeless operation: an independent and largely improvised film, costing just 400 thousand dollars, without a real plot and made by two actors unknown to the general public. Despite the premises, the cinemas of Los Angeles and New York were stormed by legions of young people from all over the country, attracted above all by the word of mouth of the many groups of the hippie counterculture. In less than a few weeks that film, Easy Rider, became a real cinematographic case, so much so that the following year it even earned two Oscar nominations for best screenplay and best supporting actor (Jack Nicholson, at the time virtually unknown).
Easy Rider, one of the few films preserved in the United States Library of Congress, as a testimony of an era and of an important social change of the American people.
