Nope, we've got two seats in the house done by Tony & both are shit, Plus we've had a mate who had to take his back twice to get it done right.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Is that the blind arse wipe who can't fit seat covers straight or get the creases out of them after cutting the foam totally wrong to make the seat ultra uncomfortable & designed to cripple you?

I'd rather shove pins in my eyes than pay for his 'services'.


He's done a good job on several of my bikes over the years.

Well I could cover a seat better than the one he did for Mrs Hooli, it's full of creases, the hump is about 2" further back on one side than the other & the foam is uneven & cut totally wrong for how you sit on the bike. It's not even got as much foam left as she asked for & he claimed it was perfect :roll:

Was over at Roger's shed today looking at £500 worth of Racing Piston and Con-rod for a BMW. Looked pretty space age but I can't afford bits like that. Tony was in his shop putting the finishing touches to a wagon seat and I have to say it looked pretty spot on. It's a shame Hooli wasn't pleased with the seat he had recovered but I will certainly continue to get my seats recovered at Tony's place.

He can't dislike gingers all that much. I'm one and my seats never come back smelling of wee or owt.

Mrs Hooli isn't ginger or me & Phoeny Archers ruined her seat before I even met her & when she took it back fobbed her off with a load of shite.
