Motorcycle gloves often have suede on the index finder (so you can wipe your visor) - so i assume they were made from gloves that must have been commonly available at the time?

That's interesting, you might be right. Here are some motorcycle gloves I found with a quick Google search.

Click on this, the site is down but Google still has a cache of the gloves. It looks like it has the 89 forearm armor built in. :toocool

One more with finger ribbing that's pretty close. It really does seem like the gloves were based on motorcycle gloves. I wonder if anyone knows for sure which ones they were? :huh

I have heard they were made originally from Thunderware motorcycle gloves.

The originals are from the company fieldsheer.

I still have a pair of the original gloves I'll try to post some pics later. They came out in 89.
