    Gene Vincent Worn Harley-Davidson Leather Jacket. "King of Rockabilly" and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gene Vincent was the ideal defiant performer to have sported this Harley-Davidson leather biker's jacket, which has survived the star by more than 35 years. The jacket, its leather still handsome, its buttons and zippers still shiny, and the Harley-Davidson trademark tag still preserved in the inside collar, has had a colorful history of its own -- having been on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, The Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool, England, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, where Vincent was posthumously inducted in 1998. Documentation for these exhibits comes with the jacket -- 12 laminated pages (including an insurance form from Lloyd's of London), all providing outstanding provenance and giving testimony to power of Vincent's enduring legacy. Vincent's hellraising, non-compromising style defined him as a man and a performer, and this jacket truly epitomizes the essence of this brilliant and legendary Rock and Roll pioneer.
