Leather Jacket - Where to get zipper fixed?

I have an Alpinestars leather jacket which is still good however the zipper has come off the track on both sides. The piece itself and tracks appear to be intact so I just need assistance getting it back on there.

Anyone know of a place on the northside that could fix this for me?

I'm assuming any tailor or alteration shop could do it as long as the zipper isn't connected to the jacket in any special way.

Do you mean that the head has come off or that the stiching has come loose.

I am on the NW side of town. I can look at it and see if it's an easy repair or not.

Call alpinestars, they fixed mine and all I had to do was pay shipping.
