Used leathers ...... would you?

Recommended Posts

I'm not really interested in track days, but I might do a couple if its going to teach me something. Neither can I see my self hacking around the roads In full leathers, so I'm not inclined to spend a huge amount of money on a set. I thought about used. Is that too ickey?

Tbh I had a Frank thomas one piece that was 2nd hand and it was fine you are unlikely to catch anything


Likewise, I brought one 2nd hand Frank Thomas too that I wore a lot last Summer when it was wall to wall sunshine, I had to stitch some of the lining on the right hand sleeve as the threads had deteriorated but the leathers itself was in very good condition. I guess it really comes down to how much you really want that item against the price that it is on sale for! :thumb:

I bought mine used, it has been stored badly (probably screwed up in a bin liner or something?) and smells of fish when it gets warm, just a bit of rot I guess but it depends how picky you are. I am considering sending it for dry cleaning because it's a decent Akito and fits perfectly so worth keeping unless I go on too many more trips to Germany and eat too much cake and schnitzel..

I also wear the gloves that came with it, I try not to to think about that too much! :lol:
