Bitchin’ motor runnin’, head out on the intergalactic highway…
Oh, sorry, didn’t see you there while humming my cleverly modified Steppenwolf song that I’m awkwardly using to segue into a description of this motorcycle suit that’s shaped like a Stormtrooper outfit. It’s made from grade-A cowhide and has the following features:
- Incredible attention to detail, featuring form molded details like never before.
- Raised rib detailing on the sleeves, shoulders, legs, torso and midsection perfectly replicating the look of rigid armor.
- Adjustable forearms, biceps, thighs and shin leather armor allow for a personalized ‘custom’ body fit.
- Waist belt is part of the jacket and not removable. Cleverly hidden is the main front zipper which has 3 main access points providing function, while allowing the main torso armor to be uncompromised and true to what was seen on screen.
- Snap buttons on the cuffs and wrist zippers.
- Jacket and Pants zip together at the waist essentially converting this to a one-piece body suit.
- Removable quilted cotton lining.
- CE-approved body armor in the shoulders, forearms/elbow, back spine protector, thighs and knee/shin armor is standard for riders but is easily removed for day-to-day wear.
Sounds like some serious suit right there, and there’s a serious price to match: $1,165 CDN for the whole set, although you can buy it in separate parts. Like, the books cost $150. But let’s face it, you’d look pretty stupid wearing only part of a Stormtrooper biking suit. You’ll still look weird wearing the whole thing, but no one gives a damn because, well, Star Wars is what.
Sales close January 31st, 2012 with delivery in Q2 of that year. The essential helmets, however… don’t appear to be sold with this.
