    Getting leathers fixed

    Hey,

    There's also a guy in Mission who specializes in leathers. Look up Stan the Leatherman. He's been around for ever.

    I'll second that. Ralph's the man!

    Got my 2 pc leathers shortened and I am super happy with the work and the price he gave me.

    Sweet I think I'm actually to big for the suit now (I'm a small guy so to big isn't really that big) so I'm thinking I might just get a flap of leather with Velcro to go over the crotch and hold it together so the zipper doesn't keep coming apart lol. Maybe next season I'll have $$ and get a 1pc until then a band-aid fix will have to do.

    You could also try the Original Leather Factory in Burnaby. It's right near Boundary Rd and Lougheed in Burnaby. I took a one piece there for alterations once, they do good work.

    Hey Brian. I'll 2nd The Original Leather Factory. They've done work on 3 of my Ducati jackets and did a fantastic job on the alterations. Price was very reasonable. Some have had not so good luck in getting the job done on time but mine was in on friday and picked up by next thursday. If I ride in on monday I'll show you what they did to my blk/wht jacket.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!
