1 Pc Leathers

Why can't I find leathers in a color other than the usual RED, GREEN, BLACK, GRAY, SILVER etc...

Why not an ORANGE or NEON Yellow etc...

Do I need to custom make my clown suit?

I thought clowns were mostly blue and red!?!:laughing6

Typically for "unusual" colors you may have to get something custom.

You could try to find a mfr. that has a Repsol scheme as it is mostly orange.

You will still have problems though with boots / gloves to match.

Because that's what most bikes' colors are.
They make leathers, helmets, gloves and boots to fit the bike color.

There are some bright color leathers, but they are race modles go around a grand.

Put some ductape.
Ductape fixes all.

you could always die the leather your self, i read on r1forum where a guy just taped off his all blk leathers and died it several different colors and it looked alright if you spend a little time in order to do a nice job.

if you do it yourself just make sure you get the dye to set well or you'll be quite the sight if you get caught in the rain

Dude, you're gonna look like a bowling shoe (but maybe that's the idea, I dunno).

If you want neon yellow and orange for visibility on the road, then aerostitch makes a textile suit in those colors. Also, there are light vests that go over your leathers (like a crossing guard get-up but sturdier).
