Langlitz Leathers

Early pictures Ross Langlitz with his 1948 KSS Velocette. In later pics it looks like the bike was customized further in the Western style with telescopic forks, smaller gas tank and more chrome.

Langlitz leather ads could be found in most motorcycle magazines from the late 1940's until present day. Ross Langlitz is a part of early West Coast motorcycle history. The company is still in business and builds their garments exactly like they did in the begining. Custom made for each customer. I have not had the coin to get a Langlitz yet, but I'd like to someday. They also do leather repairs for any brand. Visit their website here.
