Default easy rider homage peter fonda ironhead

I am a very old biker, I saw Easy Rider first run in 1969. I have been sputtering around on 2 wheels for 53 years.

I always liked the Peter Fonda jacket, do you think I'd look like a total dork if I rode my Ironhead in full black leather, full face helmet (calif) with a Peter Fonda USA flag easy rider jacket ?

Nope, just go for it! (a distressed Fonda jacket might be cool)

You just have to do what you like. Don't care what others think. It's your life. You've been long enough on the road to earn that.

Do you also wear jerseys with other peoples names on them?

You might be surprised how few will recognize what the jacket is.

I’ve never seen one with Peter Fonda on it

Now people paying big money to wear and advertise Harley-Davidson is whole other story

what I call a "peter fonda easy rider jacket" does not have peter fonda's name or his likeness on it, it's just a black leather racing jacket with a large american flag on the back,

Someone local to me does, they have an Easy Rider homage bike attached to the side of their house ;-)
(I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't been riding by on a bicycle, you see all sorts of things at 15 mph you wouldn't notice otherwise)
