Question Leather repairs

Not really Ducati related, but it is biking related. Does anyone know of a decent leather repairers?

I have a set of leathers that are a little battle scarred but essentially sound, plus I'm rather partial to them.

I feel they would be worth renovating/repairing but I don't know anyone local, I'm living in Lincolnshire now. Does anyone know of a good repairer/restorer with a decent turnaround time?

A little closer to home is http://www.pwrleathers.com/centre.html

Very good, had repairs & alterations done to my leathers over the past 10 years.

Hill 4 Leather in Ash
9 Lives dont have so many people working for them now, so their turnaround may not be so good now...

Thumbs up A big THANKYOU

Thanks gents for your recommendations, and particularly to you Chris.

PWR Leathers (Speedsport as the shop is called) is only 40 something miles from me so I took a drive over and spoke to Peter the owner. A top guy, did my first leathers for me in a week. excellent results. So I have entrusted him with my more expensive, made to measure leathers, which require a lot more work. I have no doubt I will be more than happy with the results.

So once again, a big thankyou

Antony

Chris

Is that damage or just letting them out a couple of inches a year?

NO, crashing (when racing) and as I have skinny legs , having excess leather removed

Oh, BTW thinking about starting a sweepstake on which piece of grass you will be using this year at Cadwell
