Found these NOS gloves in a box of oddball junk at one of the oldest bike shops in my area. 100% leather w/padding. Too cool to pass up, so I grabbed them!

What's the story behind them? Who made them?What does the big "H" stand for?

I'm thinking that they are Thorsten Hallman Racing products. Hallman was a well known MX racer in the 60 and 70s. Nice score

Made by a motocross co. by the name of Hallman. De Coster, as in Roger De Coster was the premier early 70's motocross star for Suzuki and later Honda I believe. Very cool find for sure! They would sell well on ebay to the vintage motocross crowd if you decide to down the road.
