Looking for a recommended source for custom/colored leathers. All I want is a good jacket and overpants in gray leather. I have had great things about Fox Creek Leathers, but they say no gray. I have emailed Vanson 3 times with no response. Any suggestions? Thanks

Z leathers in So. Cal makes nice stuff, so does NJK leathers. If I was looking for
custom leathers that is where I would start my search.
I have been seeing ads for Barnacle Bill's in Road Racing World forever, but have never
seen their stuff in person.
Vanson does GREAT work, but their customer service sucks if you are not dealing with
them face to face, and delivery is slow too.

I just got a custom set of leathers from Zooni's located in the San Jose, CA area. Not too far from Helimot. If your looking for top of the line then this is it. Z leathers is different than Zooni's and I am not sure how they are. HTH
Your not close to any of these shops so it's going to have to be a mail/phone type order rather than having the ability to visit these shops. I drove 8 hours one way 4 times to get my leathers but it was well worth it. If there is something in your area and is highly recommended by several riders then I would go that route. Mail order is a last resort for me.
