Leather Repair???

Hey guys - I a have a 2-piece Frank Thomas Leathers with a broken zipper that attaches the bottom of the jacket to the top of the trousers. Where should I take them to be repaired?

Please keep in mind I bought these second hand and don't want to spend a killer amount on the repair. They're already very well worn. Any of you boys good with a needle??? Any takers???

Ha ha - anyway I am close to Downtown if there is anything close.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thanks bud - I might try the cleaners first.

If you want it to rip, let anyone do it... If you want it to survive atleast one crash... Take it to someone who does race specific leather repairs. They have to fold the seams a special way, use a special glue, and use special thread.
