Hello, I have work to be done on a G1 Star Sportswear 17823D, replacing the collar fur and changing the bi swing elastic.
I found a tailor here in France who would need some information to get started on the job.
1 what parts need to be dismantled to change the collar fur?
2 what part of the lining must be unstitched to access the elastic(s) of the bi swing?
Thank you for your contributions.

Hi Ritchy
Its a 250 Euro plus shipping ( back and forth ) job..
Incl. all original parts ..and it will be according all original specs.. Nobody will even see its a retrofit/repair..
Sure your “ guy “ will be lower in cost… but?? :cool:

Chronoposte only back and forth to and from France…:)
Please also consider an 8 weeks waiting time.

THANK YOU for these pics!!!
It's nice to see someone who actually offers something other than "pay someone else to do it for you" when questions like these come up. If I have someone else do it for me, all I learn in the process, is...well, how to pay someone else to do it for me.
Thanks again!

Hi everyone,

I've got a part from our friend @Pilot on Tuesday and I gotta tell ya, that the package not only has been really good and fast delivered, but also, that the material's quality is better off than I've expected.
Definitivelly I recomend him!!
Now, is gonna start the second challenge, transform that piece of fur into a collar ;)

Wish me luck on that :)

I finally chose a seamstress near me who had experience with leather jackets and who guaranteed me that the jacket would be remade as original.
I just got it back, she changed the knits, the fur on the collar and the 4 elastics on the bi-swing. She asked me for 110 euros and I am very happy with the result.
Another jacket saved
