Title: Baldwin Saddlery Shutdown?
Post by: Africord on March 10, 2017, 05:04:31 pm
I just went back to the site, and discovered that it's gone.  I know that they were not taking orders at the beginning of the year.  Can anyone confirm that Baldwin is done?

Did you check the Facebook page for them? I'm not on FB but I see they have a page that is still up.

Good luck

Loren will more than likely be at the National, we can all gang up on him and talk into going back into the motorcycle seat comfort business. >:D

I'm thinking so.  I'm glad I got one when I did last year. It was the best investment I made for long distance riding next to my clearwater LED installation.


Sad to see that business close down, but I hope it's temporary.

I took a bit of a life detour.  It looked like it would be a good road, it turned out very bumpy!   :-[

Website is back online and we are building seats.

Glad to see you back Loren & hopefully back on a smoother road.  :)

I just had a seat built for my V Strom a couple months ago.   :'(  Thought you were gone for good.

That is most excellent news.  Will you be at the national ? I will have a project for you. The KTM seat you made for me worked out very well.

Nope! With just over 200,000 miles now it still runs like new.  I like it more now than the day it came off the showroom.   :)

Strom is just to have choice & do some light off road riding.

Welcome back Loren, you've been missed brother!  :beerchug:

I had to have Sargent build me a heated Viffer seat while you were out enjoying working for the man, thanks for nothing...  >:( :'(     ;D

Have fun at the Nat, try to keep the crew in order...  :beerchug:
