yes those are real and there is a story behind them. When we ordered the black leathers from Bates, they were confused over our color scheme. When we got this set, Robbie hated them. Dana and Dawn from Bates, made a whole new set (the Vegas leathers) and Robbie signed this set in black sharpie right across the white V.
Well, when RK got the Cochella jump, I had all the leathers, so instead of asking me to use a set, he called Bates and they apparently replaced the V
and gave them to him.
This isn't a bad deal and could very well be the last set of leathers he will ever jump in. We paid Bates $2500 for them originally.
: They're yours for $1600...but are they real
: deal (Jeff, do you know if they're real)?
: Good news is you also get a signed photo,
: which also has to be real (right?).

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
