Talking New Seat on the LT

I had my seat rebuilt by Seth Laam. It looks great and it feels even better. It turned out great. I can't wait to get in a long ride. I paid $350 and I thought that was cheap after I saw the finished product. It looks great on the bike. I'm really pleased............

Re: New Seat on the LT

Prior to acquiring my Lt I toured on a Hayabusa. I have done multiple bun burner rides on her. Seth Laam rebuilt the Corbin seat I used for years. Corbin offered a 6 week turn around to just re-cover the seat. Seth rebuilt it with all new padding and added a heater to the seat for about the same price that Corbin wanted to re-cover. It worked great.

I recommend his work and he actually answers the phone. By the way, his turn around time was 1 week.

Still rolling in Southern Oregon
