Question Need leathers re-sewn

Does anyone know where I can get 2 pc Frank Thomas leathers re-sewn? They stitching was torn up when they went down on my buddy at 130 on MSH a while back. He quit riding so he gave me the leathers. Anyone have a good idea where to go?

Mick you are sick. They had been worn only 3 or 4 times b4 he crashed. I don't think leather and used condomns are close to being in the same category!

Dang BlackWidow, glad to know you are ok and the leathers held up.!

Is there any reason to try and replace the titaninum (sp?) on the sholders? the rights a lil swore for wear but, just scrathed bad!

I'm perfectly okay...

Read my signature...

You can have her/someone else try to fix the titanium part, or just have them add leather over there... works find either way.

mister 1 trackday has all the answers.

i've crashed in my leathers more times than i care to remember and or count, and still wear the out of them. Jesse's right next to motorcycles unlimited can do it, there is a place in the galleria that does it as well and some dry cleaning stores do leather repairs also, just check around and see what you find thats close to you.

Sweet. Motorcycles Unlimited is about 5 miles North of the casa. I will drive by Jesse's Thursday and let them have a look at it to get a price. never thought of covering the plates with another piece of leather.

Thanks for the help guys and ladies!

Does Jesse's do alterations? I've got a perf'd Vanson Jacket that is too big around the stomach and I'd like to have it tailored.

There's a shop in Summerwood that re-sew my gloves and leathers cheap, I'll get the name of the shop and post it up later so you can call them.
