Syed Leathers...

just got an email from Syed leathers......

my custom leather suit has been shipped!!! and will be arriving to its new home shortly. all i can say is WOW....

order placed....March 19th

finished and shipped....April 1st.

I paid a little extra for the rush order (cuz my old leathers are pretty torn up from the highside crash), but , these guys/gals got my suit done quick. I've had various other custom leather companies estimating MONTHS of wait time. Many people say the quality and perforation of Syed Leathers is second to none, so I can't wait to slap these suckers on and GO FASTER!!!!

i'll evaluate the suit when it arrives.....

SWEET! I want to get custom fit leathers some day.

I just got a call from the repair shop for mine, $45! I can't believe it's so cheap.

Dayum that's quick!

I've heard nothing but positive stuff about Syed leathers. Tony how did they go about doing the custom fitting? Do you send in your measurements or do you go to a shop (like a vendor of therez) and then they do it for you?

they give you a chart/diagram to help with getting your measurements done.

I however got Suzanne at Motorcycles Unlimited to help me with the measurements to be sure I wouldn't screw it up. (that would be a $1450 mistake)

with a measuring tape, a helping hand, and about 15 minutes, you'll have every measurement needed for the fit.

AS FOR THE SUIT!!!!! I PICKED IT UP EARLIER!!!! I'm no power ranger expert, so you guys can see me with it on the track....but the fit and quality is VERY nice. the perforation looks like it will keep me cool even in our 90+ degree summer riding. can't wait to hit the track now!

THANKS AGAIN SUZANNE AT MOTORCYCLES UNLIMITED!!! This wouldn't have been possible without her help.
