Does anyone have any experience with maiking modifiactions to H.D. seats ?

I like the Sundowner seat with Black studs, but need it a bit lower. I was wondering if there is any company that can do that, maybe scoop the foam lower or lower it with gel. Even taper the front. I would appreciate any help. being only 5'8" Road king little high. I dont like the Corbin seat and the H.D. reach seat brings my Gut on the tank.

look for a custom saddle/seat maker. Im sure he can slice and dice your seat no problem. Or, let some air out of the tires.:duh?:

a lot of automotive interior or boat shops may do the job also. check around, get some past customer experiences if available. i am going in the same direction. i hate the stock 90 fxrs pillow cushion seat, ugliest damn thing next to that hdlight brow.

Do it yourself, it's not difficult.

You need an electric or pneumatic staple gun, an electric carving knife and a razor knife. I removed the cover and re-shaped the foam on my 06 Deluxe seat. I was still not happy with the "fit". I since got a Heritage seat on EBay for $100. I installed it yesterday and it is close to perfect.

some seats you could do-it-yourself. not so sure about the sundowner. i think the top of the sundowner is glued to the foam. that's how they get the smooth surface that makes you slip forward each time you stop.

Custom seats in CT

Check these two guys out. I had Barrett redo my Bare Bones seat with custom leather. It came out real good.

He is in East Haddam

Also check this guy out he's from Oakville. He did a few seats for my buddys and they also came out great.
