Guy in Florida that fixes the GS seat?

Has anyone got the number or website or contact info of this guy in florida I have heard people ranting about that takes your original GS seat and redoes the foam in some fashion that keeps the rest of the seat intact? I have a sargeant on the front which is great but I was not riding 2 up at the time so did not get the rear done and don't want to pay another 300 for that small of a seat so I thought prior to spending 300 I would give this guy a try. He apparently is 25 bucks or something. thanks for the help. Worse case scenario I never see the seat again. It can't get more uncomfortable than the original.

I['ve heard good things about his service. But note that he doesn't do recovering. He will re-use whatever covering is on the seat.

Spencer seat mods

Before leaving on a trip to Tennessee last year (from Washington State) I had the seat foam on my 2007 Adventure redone by Spencers. As I recall, the seat mods were about $65-$70 and shipping was $95! The mods did improve the stock seat, which I used with a sheepskin cover, but if I had to do it again, I would go with an aftermarket seat or a freedom rider cushion. It really is a matter of the shape of the seat being all to wrong for my butt, not the materials in it. Just my $.02

Thumb spencer mod

i had my standard seat 07 1200gs done last year with the ld option. i was very pleased with the results, rider wt 230#, sure it would have been nice to have more of a seat pocket but with the spencer mod shape doesn't change. between my buddy and i we have had a russell, a mayer , a gel pad, a sheepskin etc, spencer is a great company, honest and quick , i'd bet if you were not happy with his mod he would adjust it for you, good value if not spending the big bucks.
