    I use Riders Leather repairs in Woodcote (Just outside Reading). They are on 01491 681143. Did a cracking job and wicked fast turn around on my A-stars jacket when the original zip exploded on me, fitting a chunkier heavy duty zip. Very reasonably priced to.

    Sorry for late reply to this thread.
    I got my Alpinestars suit modified by Joyda Leathers in Wigan.
    The leathers cost me 180.00 used (but as new condition)
    The multiple modifications cost 300.00
    The only thing I really left unmodified was the chest, I got arms/legs/bum all altered or extended, new zips etc.
    So I've basically got myself a made-to-measure Alpinestars suit for 480.00

    Think my leathers could do with a little modding, I blame the shoddy italian workmanship.
    For some reason the legs have remained the same size but the waste keeps shrinking and I have quite some trouble fastening the trousers....
    The jacket also seems to have some trouble coming together even though the arms are unaffected. Very Unusual was for a material to deform.

    Is this a common problem, as I cant say I ever noticed it when I was younger!!!
