Tony Archer re-worked my seat :)
on: January 05, 2018, 10:36:22 AM
Had both Seats recovered by Tony Archer in non-slip vinyl ( I didn't like the shiny spandex cover on the original seat - way too slippy  - and had this mod done on my BMW GS to great effect). I also had done reform the rider seat in comfort foam and lower it by 20mm (for the short are in me) .......... result is pretty awesome for £130 all in.

The non slip vinyl isn't a million miles away from the original color wise though it is more matte finish and works really well to stop me sliding about under braking. The reforming and reprofiling both work well and avoid the need for suspension lowering ... not flat footed with my 30" inside leg but not far off it and much more secure.

Looks good m8.  :152:  I went the other direction and sorted some knee grips to keep me in position.

I shall be calling upon you this year at some point to ask for your usual assistance with my Cr, if you are able.  :031:

Very nice. Tony did my FiX seat many years ago, good to see he is still great value.
