Kawasaki's Past Sponsors / Jacket ?

I am looking at a new leather jacket pictured below
and can't remember if Kawi ever was sponsored by Lucky Strike.
I really like the retro look of the McQueen days of racing.
I even found a replica of his leather.

Anyway, what do you guys think of this leather.
It does have armor.

I don't even smoke but don't care.
Back in the 70's, cigarette sponsors were all over racing.
Marlboro man reined supreme lol.

I like it for the retro look and not everyone and his brother has one.

I was looking at Kawi leathers, but a few too many have been showing up around here on guys with 250's and 500's. Along with the freakin helmet mohawks and buzz saw blade.
To each their own I guess. Some may say that about me because I like this jacket.
But I don't want anyone thinking I'm associated with them.
So I find something more individual like the lucky strike.

Lucky Strike Suzuki, colors were red and white. The Glory days of Moto GP, American Heros duking it out with the best in the world on smokin two stroke velociraptors waiting to spit lesser men over the high side in a blink of a eye.
Men were Men and Racers were Racers!
