    If anyone needs small stuff done the leather/shoe guy next to cycle gear in Manchester does stuff. The finger on my track gloves came undone and he fixed it while I waited. 5 bucks

    Default Leathers Cleaning??

    Reviving this to try and get some options from those who know....

    Lizzy Leather is out of business. Her auto reply on email said to use a guy named Barnacle Bill, but his website looks like it's from 1980.

    http://www.racingleather.com

    Clean Gear of Hamden looks like it's still in biz, but not moto specific.

    Anyone have any recommendations as to where to send a suit for cleaning and maybe custom lettering?

    Does Heroic do this, for non-Heroic suits?

    Thanks in advance.

    No direct experience, but Barnacle Bill seems to have a good reputation.

    However, you might try doing the cleaning yourself. It's not hard. There are products that let you clean your suit in the washing machine and I've had good results with them. You do need to dry the suit properly (lay flat, turn over occasionally... ).

    By "good results" my A* suit got thoroughly wet at the track this year and I failed to take it out of its bag promptly enough. It started to grow some mold... lesson learned. A spritz of white vinegar/water solution to kill the mold, wipe off, then the laundry deal and it was good as new.

    The stuff I use is from Absorbine, which caters to the equestrian crowd. The exact products appear to have been renamed... they were called Leather Therapy Infusion Wash and Infusion Rinse. It looks like they're now called Leather Therapy Leather Laundry Solution and Leather Therapy Laundry Rinse & Dressing. They still sell a "Wash" product, but it looks like a spray-on, wipe-off deal. Yeah... confusing.

    I also use Lexol for routine between-wash cleaning and conditioning. Used to be all I had, but based on results I don't think it's that great for a good, thorough deep clean. That's why I tried the laundry stuff. Haven't seen the need to send the suit off.

    Barnacle Bill does good work. He's an old school guy, so yeah, his website is a bit dated, but he actually does have a Facebook page he posts on. He also does full custom suits, alterations, lettering, etc.

    For alterations/repairs/lettering, there's a guy in Mass that works for Vanson, but does non-Vanson leatherwork on the side. He doesn't have a website, but there's a big thread on NESR about him, his contact info is in there:
    http://www.nestreetriders.com/forum/...ork-34231.html

    Also, Clean Gear recently moved to Wallingford, right behind Toyota dealer. IIRC, when I asked a few years ago, it was $50 for a leather onesie cleaning, or $35 for an Aerostich suit cleaning. http://cleangearofct.com/
