Our philosophy of affordable luxury and great design has also been extended to the 78 series gloves. Whether you are on the handlebars or gripping a vintage Mota-Lita they need to fit well, look great and most importantly give you the confidence to grab your machine by the scruff of the neck. All to often gloves are ill fitting and distinctly lacking style or colour. We set out to change that by making gloves panel by panel to ensure they fit great, suit your style and look timeless.
Each pair is hand cut and crafted from the finest hides each with their own unique patina. We carefully select the hides personally and spend time getting the tanning process just right. Every pair has been designed to sit close to the hand yet allow fluid motion with enough protection should the going get tough. Every pair feature Velcro 'Buddy Tabs' to keep your gloves together. Let’s not lose sleep over the one that never made it home.
All gloves from 78 can be treated with our own blend of almond oil and beeswax... This protects and enhances the original patina (and smell!) It's free so simply ask.
