"What type of garb would you wear on this kind of bike?  What comes to mind is goggles, brown or black leather bomber jacket (depending on the bike color) and a long scarf!"

Belstaff Waxed Cotton (jacket and overtrousers and mitts!). Possibly full length gaberdine trench coat. Goggles - if you like. Bomber jacket - no, No, NO! Wrong period, wrong sub-culture. SHORT white silk scarf - if you like, but really only if a cafe racer model.

And if you want the true period appearance....smoking a pipe while you ride (that's why designed to go quite sedately!

I just wear my regular modern MC gear.

I did see a Bullet blasting down the interstate a few months ago: the rider was wearing trim black leather with a Euro-flair, goggles and a puddin' bowl helmet. Can't remember but it seems like lace-up black boots with pants tucked in and a scarf too. Very retro. It was the most Bullet-like attire I've seen.

Our new catalog will have  a two new lines of "retro helmets" that are both DOT approved and reasonable in price as well as some retro- googles, Maybe boots and scarves are next.

  Man!  I've been away from my "souped up typewriter" awhile and now I have some respondin' to do!  I've got a few more questions to throw at you all now.  Thanks for the response and I'll post soon.
