Tony Archer, (Huddersfield). . . I have used the services of this man. You will get a "first class" service, and you will not be disappointed. He has done two seats for me in the past couple of years. I am delighted with them both. Regards, Tony

Had a Bandit seat custom built, know of at least 4 Harley seats and many classic bike seats done by Tony Archer, 1st class work on them all, tell him what you want or take pictures and he'll do anything.

Just thought I would add, I have had about eight seats altered by Tony over the years. He is the nicest chap around, very good prices and he listens to exactly what you want and delivers it. 

His workmanship is also extremely good and very professional. 

I would not use anyone else. 

Cheers

Ian

High recommendations. Shame, then, that Huddersfield is not near me.

I have always just given him a ring to describe what I want then popped the seat in the post. He then just posts it back, very reasonable too. About ten quid last time if I recall. 

Cheers
