Looking for Seth Laam
« on: April 02, 2014, 02:33:13 am »
Anyone heard from Seth Laam? Two e-mails and a phone call, no response. On vacation? Joined the foreign legion?

Same here.... I've been trying to reach him for 5 weeks, lost count how many emails and voice mails. Figured he is just busy trying to get guys already in the pipeline fixed. But i keep thinking, how long should I wait?

Heck, he may not be available till who knows when. Have been talking with other's and thinking if I dont hear something from him soon will have to go somewhere else.

I just did a drive-in about a month ago at Seth Laam seats. If I had to do over it would be the FIRST modification I would do to the connie. GREAT seat!
I just spoke with him and he said it was ok to post his cell number. 530-351-5643. That's the secret. I understand the frustration of getting a hold of him but the seat is outstanding!!! It's most definitely worth the wait and frustration.

If i were to guess this is when a seat making guy gets busy and answering phones and  emails gets tougher.  One of the problems with a one man show, not quite big enough to have an office staff, but too big to not have one.

I commented on a post he made on Facebook last week and he responded. So as of end of last week, he was still alive.  ???

To anyone with a Laam seat, are risers necessary for an average size 5-10 to 6-0 person with his seat?  I'd consider a custom seat but I don't like the looks of the bike with bar risers.  I would think if the forward slide of the factory seat is removed, you would have to reach that much further forward or get the risers....

Be patient and you will be rewarded. Late last year I was trying to get a hold of him and one night I get a call out of the blue from Seth. A good man and will do his best for you. I had to wait around all winter before I could really try out my Seth Laam seat. Now that spring is here every ride I take I like his seat more. Just for the record I'm in my mid 60s, 5'10" around 195 and I have bar risers and glad I do.

Hi,
      Jeez....Once I talked to Seth and shipped my seat. I think 10 days later I was riding! I don't know ANYONE that can do a CUSTOM seat with that quality, that fast??? I'm 6'8" and dont want risers!

   Maybe something to keep in the old cabeza is I have NEVER heard of anyone getting a seat from Seth that was not super happy and or any problems taken care of!
