Repairs and Alterations

Thurston Bros. started with a mission to repair and refurbish diamond-in-the-rough leather jackets from America's rich motorcycle history!  While our business has shifted to creating the next generation of vintage jackets with Aero, Thedi and Vanson, we still have a passion for working on leather jackets.  If you are in need of a zipper repair or replacement, lining repairs, leather patching or anything else to keep your jacket in wearable condition, contact us at for an estimate.


General pricing range (will vary based on level of difficulty); pricing includes labor and materials unless otherwise specified:

Zipper replacement (front/main zipper)--$150 to $225

Sleeve zipper replacement (per sleeve)--$60-$110

Pocket pull replacement--$50 to $65; full pocket zipper tape and pull replacement--$80-$100

Sleeve shortening (button cuff, straight cuff, zip sleeve, etc.)--$150 to $250 for both sleeves

Lining patching and repairs--$50 to $150


Other work--decorative or racing patches, snaps, buttons, seam repair, replace pocket bags, add interior pockets, leather hole/abrasion repair, and much more!  This is not a complete list of the repairs and pricing.  Please inquire at to get an estimate for your repair.
