Any recommendations for a shop to make alterations to leathers in the Manchester area.
Currently looking to go to "Joyda" near Hindley I think.

Not Manchester, but you might try:

Dave the Leather Man
Dave Lawton
10 Moore View
Bradford BD7 4DT

01274 570252 or 07710 049505

He's done a few jobs for me.
Top quality work and reasonable prices.

Manchester is a superb place for 'specialist' leather alterations!

Are you wanting fringes added to your leathers or perhaps a set of chaps with diamante detailing, cold pressed embossing or perhaps some hot branding?

Opted for Joyda on saturday. Walk in, get your leathers on, get poked and prodded, thought about tassles and hot branding....for a nano second.... then got the run down on what type of alterations available.
I didn't go for the skin-tight version as I would probably end up stuck in them for the whole weekend what with living on me own.
I'll let you know.
My ex-brother-in-law does saddle leather work so if you want a couple of whips/crops/bridles made to measure I can sort that out for you. I think he already ships a private order to Gurrrrnsey but I told him he's got the bridle measurements all wrong...in fact that don't look anywhere big enough for a horses head, more like a human head.....wait a minute!!!!

I got crap service from Andelle! :frown:

Fell off my bike at 5mph going round a bend on a new back tyre I'd done 300 yards on! oops :wanker:
Scraped the elbow off my textile jacket which has some leather detailing.

Took it to Andelle and got quoted £50 for two leather patches.
After four seperate phone calls over a ten day period asking and asking if they'd done the work (quoted a "couple of days") they eventually got their stuff together and did it on the Friday before I was due to go on a weeks biking holiday on the sunday! I couldn't pick it up because of work so my missus went. Bike had textile patches, not leather. NOT £50 WORTH OF WORK!!! :mad: Unfortunately my missus didn't know what I had agreed to have done and just paid up.

Seriously underwhelmed by poor service and overpriced work!
The actually work itself is OK. However, one out of three is enough to mean I'll never use them again despite only living about 3 miles away.


my suggestion would be to try someone else.

Anyone know if it's possible to get sections of a leather jacket perforated? I only ride in fair weather and wouldn't mind a bit more ventilation.

Crispy: I've got Wolf kangaroo leathers and they've got perforations in which are reasonable in warm weather. So must be possible to put perforations in - provided they're not in a stressed area of the leather.

I have a perforated leather jacket, have only managed to use it a few times this year. They freeze the nuts off you due the windchill factor.

On really hot day it is great, but lets be honest how many of them do we have. :D

Good point...sometimes it's lucky I get advice on stupid decisions I could make without thinking it through enough

Some come with perforations as std - my leather dainese jacket has small perforations on the arms
My A'stars has a couple of fabric panels on the inside of the arm but that's all. I was wondering if a section on the front of my shoulders might help keep my upper back cooler, especially now I've upgraded the OEM back protector to a KNOX that covers more of my upper back.

7 ounce 12 gauge two shots from 15ft should do the trick
:D

got my leathers back from Joyda (Nicky) Leathers and they're spot on where we had decided to change them.
Well happy with the result.

Good grief, jings, crivvens and help ma boab .................... a positive recommendation ................... not a whinge ...................... I must be on the wrong forum this evening. On a more serious note - you can't beat a personal recommendation from a man with an eye for detail.
