Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Hello,

I'm new to the group. I just got an old motorcycle running and was going to try to dieselpunk myself out.. I debated between two helmets:

this:

and this: 

I chose the 2nd one because I didn't necessarily want to go with the 'sinister' look. So, I'm looking at leather jackets on leatherup.com and am trying to pick something out... here's some comparisons with my motorcycle. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I also plan to have some wicked goggles.

That's a bad ass helmet! If it were me, I'd purchase the first coat. The horizontal line thing is played out, and I'm not jiving on the sheen of coat #4.

Pretty cool helmets! 

If it is between those four jackets only, then I would probably go with the first one, also.

My budget is <$200... if anyone knows where to find a good WW2 style motorcycle jacket or something elsewhere, please link!

Very, very cool! Good choice on the helmet. On the jacket, my preference would be between the one of the two on the right. 

do you have a link to the first helmet, i would like that for riding in

I'd go for the first jacket as well, if it is a choice between the four.

But you could always have a look at this ebay-sellers shop to see if there's anything there. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/CUSTOMJACKETS-UNITED-KINGDOM?_trksid=p2047...
I have no idea what the requirements for motorcycle-jackets are, so they may not be safe enough for you.

thank you kindly

Man I like this one! The problem for motorcycles is that you want ventilation in the summer, and there's also armor that's an added bonus. Not much ventilation in this one I don't think:

I just bought that model, although in the glazed brown leather instead of black: http://tinyurl.com/czqf68a

I bought it Saturday, so I'm waiting for it to arrive.... *drums fingers impatiently*

Maybe you can tell me if those front pocket zippers are pockets or vents...

awesome buy there!

According to the description, they are pockets, but I'll let you know as soon as it arrives.
