Hello new here! I wondered if someone could tell me the make and details of Golly's jacket please? I can see it has a red tartan lining and looks like a wax jacket? Not sure though! Any help would be great!

Hi! Thanks, and yes I'm sure you're right. I've been doing some detective work and I think it's a Belstaff Trailmaster. Looks like his might be a vintage one, they do still make them, and they have changed very little, but his looks more like an early 70's one from what I can see. The vintage ones run to quite a bit of money now. £200 to £400 depending on size and condition. It's a very nice jacket.
Looks like a Belstaff Trialmaster to me too. They are very pricey if you can find them ($500) but they've ceased production last year or so. An old school dirt bikers jacket, nothing like they make today.
edit: I take that back, they have started making them again and you can get one here for the low price of $795:
I think if my memory serves me right has been asked about before the Safari one was found and in a very bad state and I think one of the others was scrapped, I liked the 2cv which a person at the guest house in Laggan has, I enquired about it but they did not want to sell again I think it needs a lot of work if it ever was to see the road again, Molly’s Moggie Minor was owned by someone in Kingussie I was told but that was probably over 10 years ago.
