Wheels of Man – 1972 Catalogue

1970s, Fashion, Retro Advertising • 2890 Views • 1 Comment

Get your motor runnin’, head out on the highway, looking for adventure and whatever comes our way. Yeah darlin’ go make it happen, take the world in a love embrace, fire all of your guns at once and explode into space – wearing, of course, Wheels of Man, America’s finest riding accessories. Here we take a look at the 1973 catalogue from Wheels of Man – one time purveyors of fine leather, suede and nylon motorcycle clothing but now sadly no longer with us. Quite how long they were around for is not clear and our old mate Google is sadly lacking in any further information on them. The three ranges were the RoadMan, HighwayMan and the fanstatically named ManJak (there’s something not quite right about that word) which was made from a slick coated nylon, ideal for those rainy days when you don’t want to get your leathers wet. We’re off for a spin on our hogs but in the meantime enjoy amongst other items flared leather trousers, suede mustard motorcycle suits and of course the whole ManJak range.

    I’d been thinking about looking up -Wheels of Man- ever since coming across my old tank bag I’d used on my 71 Honda 350… The wife and I had several items of theirs – they made nice stuff –
    Thanks for the site…
