Buco

Founded in Detroit in 1933, Buco pairs the first syllable of the founders last name, Buegeleisen, with the common abbreviation for company.

A prominent manufacturer of motorcycle parts and accessories, Buco produced windshields, mufflers and other hardware alongside jackets, boots  and other hard-wearing leather goods. The Horsehide rider’s jackets produced during the 1940s-50s were their masterpieces.

The quality and perfection of these jackets remains the gold standard for leather jacket design still today. Although often worn as fashion pieces in the modern day, Buco’s primary concern was to produce gear that would protect riders, as summed up in their motto “protection through research”.

Buco and its products faded into history, but have now been brought back to life. Each model is produced to the precise specifications of the originals, using horsehide of the highest quality, tanned in traditional methods and authentically ageing cotton thread. By continuing to manufacturer classic Buco masterpieces like the J-24 and J-100 jackets, as well as a broad line of engineer boots, leather gloves and other accessories, The Real McCoy’s has proven the legitimate heir of the Buco name and tradition..
