Question Motorcycle Jacket/Pants Alterations

Hi Everyone,

I have a textile motorcycle jacket and pants ( Made my BMtroubleyou) that i have had for a while and i am looking at doing some alterations to it to suit my style of riding a bit better. I would like to put some waterproof zips and vents in the front (breast pocket area like the ralley suit) and add a slit in the back for a hydration pack.

I would also like to put some waterproof vents with mesh underlay in the pants area for a bit of ventilation as there is currently nothing. Now i am not looking to buy a new jacket or pants and i realise that this is going to cost and ( probably more than buying a new set) but i love my gear and do not want to get something else to replace it. I have spoken with some places and it will not ruin the integrity of the clothing nor will it ruin the waterproofing and can and has been done before.

Has anyone on here done this before?

If you know of anywhere i could get a quote from or you know of someone who does this sort of thing it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

G

Try Knights upholstery on the Wee Waa Rd Narrabri. Murray Knights pretty good on the sewing machine, I've had him fix tank bags etc with good results. Cheers Pete
