there's a guy at "Best Alterations" on the corner of Bascom and Camden in Campbell. He altered my leather riding pants (Kobe Dragon) for $50.

Johnsons Leathers on Polk St. in SF. Great leather tailors - they do alot of work on motorcycle gear. I've only used them once to sew in a back protector to a dainese jacket, but they do tons of custom work and alterations. I have only heard great testimonials.

yeah the jacket looks very fine, been wearing that with my regular leather overpants or the new first gear pants( but can't zip it togather) . I am 6'4" and 210lbs so i got the 58 Euro. I really wanted a 2pc suit for long trips and the GTS looked classic.

I 'll check out Johnsons as well then
