Leather Repair
Motorcycle Leather Repair - Before

A tooth broke on the zipper fly of these Joe Rocket Blaster perforated leather pants (photo above). I took them to Outback Leather in Laurel, Maryland for repair. They finished the job in 2 hours and it cost $25.00. I chose this heavy-duty metal YKK zipper to replace the Nylon teeth of the original (photo below).

Outback will repair any type of leather; they specialize in motorcycle and horseback riding apparel and gear. They'll take orders on custom-made bridle quality saddlebags!
