  1. For Sale / Wanted
    Looking for a stock seat for my '02 reg RD07a for Tony Archer to work his magic on. I'm not too bothered about the state of the upholstery and foams, but the seat base must be usable. Thanks for your attention, Flyingcharlie

    Here are a few pics of my latest aquisition, a "La Sellerie" seat from La Belle France. Very comfortable, standard height but I believe that they do a lowered version too. If anyone is interested I still have my blue Tony Archer lowered one. Negotiable. Les

    So you're on crutches and can't get about that well but you want to keep your bike looking good. What do you do? well if you've got a mate like Tony he brings his compressor and gun filled with ACF50 to your house in his van and gives it a good coating with the magic stuff. So the man of the...

    I've just had my seat lowered by a great guy called Tony Archer in Huddersfield. This is the third bike seat I have had re done by him and he is a true craftsman. ( Just google "Tony Archer" to see ) One week turn around from Somerset to Huddersfield. I told him to take as much foam out as he...
