    Hi,

    I need few zippers for my new custom MC Jacket. One 22" #10 and five 6" smaller ones (#5 probably?). Chromed steel is preferred, but brass would be OK too. It would be good, if smaller ones have chain and diamond or ring type puller.

    Does anybody know some place where I can buy them online? I have only found 1 or 2 22" Talons from eBay and the problem is that those used lightly colored tape.

    Hi - I've bought Riri zippers from http://www.pacifictrimming.com/ - they cut to size and offer a range of different pullers.

    Curious what the going rate is to have zippers replaced on a leather jacket, roughly, anyone know?

    Johnson Leathers did my A-2 for just under $100. It was tricky because the original zip tape was caught under a collar snap but the job they did is completely invisible. Their pricing varies depending on the difficulty. I was happy to pay that because it's my favourite jacket and it now has a fully functioning original Talon.

    Mash Japan only has main zippers - I could find these from eBay too and dye the tape black, if needed.

    I mostly need source for 6-6.5" pocket zippers. With chain and ring or chain and diamond type pulls preferably. Probably I could make my own pulls for these and use modern zippers, but for obvious reasons I would prefer vintage ones :)
