Care and Repair of Motorcycle Leatherwork

Bikes and leather go together - no matter what kind of bike you ride sooner or later you are going to need to care for some leatherwork. Saddle bags, tool cases, leather seats and personal leather clothing (your leathers) jackets, gloves, boots and trousers all need some attention to keep them looking good and working well.

This is a basic common sense guide to 'leather fettling' for ordinary bikers, written with the backing of more than thirty years experience and is offered without any guarantees - either implied or explicit!

Note: You won't need expensive cleaning chemicals, fancy waxes or polishing potions and you won't need to work too hard either. Everything on this page is about the easiest and cheapest way to keep your stuff looking good and working well.
