Anyone near Anaheim willing to give up a seat so we can get a local dealer to make something worth sitting on?

This is the address 1367 S. Lewis Street Anaheim, CA 92805.

Htmoto is wanting to make seats for the Grom but they are waiting for a seat to be used as a template. I emailed them today and they emailed me letting me know that they will and want to make one. So I said I will see if we can find someone local willing to give up their seat. I don't know how long they need it.

I have HTMoto on my Aprilia...awesome work. If no one lets them have a seat, I'll send them mine in November when I go back offshore so they can do a template

Hey Banks.....
Will call them on Tuesday and get a seat to them on next Monday.
May be able to work a deal with them and save them the cost of a new seat and save a little. :smile:
Will keep you posted

I was the first to send them my Tuono seat and they took the install fee off ($40) so they could use it as a template. They do embroidery as well on the seats if you want; I got the Aprilia lion head on the front of the hump on my passenger seat and it is top notch

I'll give them my seat. I actually hate that stupid seat. It hurts! How long do they need it for?
I sent them the part number for the for the stock seat but I'm still waiting for a reply. When they reply I will ask how long they need it and get back to you.

My seat is going to them Monday. They said some from Handagrom had been talking to them, so I will keep you all posted on the results. Not happy with the hard foam so it will get worked out and maybe a larger base width. Did this with my CRF250X and it worked well. :blackgrom:

They have my seat and I had a long talk with them including the technician, about what I was not satisfied with. Together we decided to cut the top, add softer material (gel & foam), and make the narrow top area wider, keeping the same height. They will try to use the original seat cover and if it won't be large enough, then re-cover with a Kevlar looking material.
Should be ready at the end of the week.
Have to say they were very impresive and I was shown the whole process of what they do. I'm an old retired Aerospace Engineer and can tell from what I seen, they are great.
Will keep you all informed......

PS...They do a lot of Police motorcycle seats, for the same reason....:hondalogo:
