Ive always used shoe repair shops. They most always also repair handbags/belts etc.. & are also equipped for & repair leather jackets on the cheap as appose to sending it to Vanson etc... There is a particularly good one in LA that i normally recommend but you are too far away i suppose!

Its located in a corner strip mall. On the N/E corner of Olympic & Westwood blvds. He is an older guy with lots of experience. He has repaired several leather jackets/boots of mine & done a great job.

He's running his normal end of year special right now... Cleaning/Conditioning normally $75... right now $40. Just got mine back. VERY quick turn around... total time w/out my leathers was about 2 weeks. Plus they had to sew up a seam that got jacked on my last race day of the season when I hit the deck... Did a great job!!!

Is it your bike or your elbow that you wanted the repair kit for?
