You won’t find a lot of auto upholstery shops willing to wrap a motorcycle helmet in leather. There’s good reason — it’s freakin’ hard!
Making the pattern, sewing the leather, gluing the cover on… and that’s just the outside of the helmet! You might also need to trim the liner.
Of course, there are some trimmers who make it look easy. These craftsmen have spent countless hours mastering the skill.
