Tony Archer Seats
« on: 30 May 2017, 12:07:26 am »
Anyone used his services recently? Was thinking of giving him a call....what sort of money we talking?...is it better to take the bike and let him see you sat on it?...or better to just post the seat to him for his miracle working?

Had mine done by him several months ago, will never go back and could never recommend him, made a mess of a trim and recover of a Corbin seat. and cost me £80 for the privilege,
Digger seats was spot on, think it was £130 but not 100% on that.

Had a seat done by him for a tdm900.
It was the most uncomfortable seat I have ever used. It was completely the wrong shape putting a huge amount of stress on the lower back, ended up cutting down to a better sharper myself.

Had mine done by "Digger" last August. Finish is good. Not done enough miles etc to comment on comfort yet but so far so good.

Dave Digger here also - done 2 seats for me. Cost around £130 exchange (buy tatty 2nd seat off fleabay and send). Can't fault cost, comfort, quality or even time to receive - just tell him/talk to him about what you want, trim colour fabric type, and you'll get it.


Have a look at Customers Bikes and Seats Gallery

Good luck  :thumbup




Those are my principles...if you don't like them I have others.
