What did male motorcyclists wear in 1930s England? I'm assuming the outfits from Watch This Club Ride Vintage 1930s Motorcycles Across France are probably pretty accurate, as well as the top image results for google search. But I wanted to see if anyone has any better sources of information on this topic. Also, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could put names to the specific articles of clothing, in addition to pictures, as I'm attempting to create a costume.

    The question was phrased as speculation, which generally will earn a question here close votes. However, there's no reason it needed to be, as we know such people existed, so I rephrased it for you.

This is very interesting, yet very difficult to find much information. You will likely have to combine multiple sources to find your answer.

I like the 2 sources you already have, and pandomoto.com is another one.

From skull caps to leather padding, the military had a lot to do with the style of motorcyclist fashion. I hope this helps!
