I used this asshat and he literally put some chunk of shit gel on top of my original seat foam and stapled the seat cover back on. I opted for the "viso elastic" whatever he calls it top of the line option. It didn't even look like the same stuff he has pics of on his website.


He didn't sculpt any foam, he didn't alter my seat in any way as he states he does on his website as well as what I discussed with him..... fuck that clown!!


Eddie Barrett is a straight up dude though. The perks to using him is you can talk directly with him, bring your bike to his shop which isn't too far from you Mike...... if you have the time he will make some foam shaped to what he thinks you're looking for after discussing your needs and you can test ride it..... come back and give feedback and he will alter it until you're happy... that's a huge perk IMO vs going with something you don't know how it will turn out after your cash is spent...

Is eddie Barrett the guy in middlefield? If so yeah he's awesome..did a fantastic job on the seat for Jakes bike. Super cool, he quoted me a price, stayed at that price even though he ended up doing more work/using more material than originally thought. He's well known in the custom MC (Harley) world.

I'm pretty sure this is the website.

http://www.automotollc.com

He's no longer at the grey building, just go across the tracks to that gaggle of red-barn buildings, his is the furthest one from the road.

I'm gong back there soon for a few other things (seats/saddlebag repair)......don't tell him you're in no rush though.

How are Eddie Barrett prices? Right now I'm looking at saddlemen, Terry's custom seats, or this guy Eddie.
