Vintage Motocross Jerseys

Submitted by on December 24, 2009

Here are some super shots of Motocross jerseys, worn during battle by some of the best riders to ever throw a leg over a bike.

The evolution in design can be clearly seen as we go from the simple bold colours of Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki  in the 70s to the sponsor heavy Fox, JT , HRP and DG jerseys of the 1980s.

For me the coolest of them all is David Bailey’s number 1 Honda JT Racing jersey from 1986. White jerseys were all the rage in the mid eighties and with the red and blue of the Honda logo, this jersey looks great.

Roger DeCoster’s 1979 Suzuki jersey (Five time World Motocross Champion)
