Seth Laam Custom Seats

I’m currently in Redding Ca. getting the Tenere 700 seat rebuilt by one of the best guys on the west coast. Seth Laam has worked magic on my 1200 Super Tenere twice,   improving it after my ironbutt in 2013 and then again in 2016 before my 48 state/ 4 corners ride. Seth has been building seats for 21 years now, that’s a long time when you are still a couple years from being 40😏. He worked under Bill Mayer since a teenager before moving out on his own to make a name for himself.  His attention to detail and personal service is clearly evident when you talk with him. (Hint, give him a call!)

He is quite popular among several different brands of bikes, he’s seeing lots of can-am spiders at the moment. I know he’s done a ton of Super Teneres and he has said he’s done thousands of FJR’s. Seth is a 1 man show, from initial contact, interview, seat building and shipping department, it’s only him. Wait times can be a about a month (with shipping time included) if you are mailing in your seat pan BUT riding out to Redding will cut that time down to 2-4 hours. The riding around Redding is also very spectacular, on or off road. This is his first Tenere 700 seat but I’m sure it won’t be his last.😏 Call him to set up a ride in, you won’t be disappointed!

 Within a few hours he was done and I’m very impressed with the craftsmanship! His prices start about $400 depending on what want done, that’s a deal in my book!

Even the 8 month old shop puppy Apollo likes the T-700! 😁

It's all about going for a ride with friends on the Yamaha Super Tenere, on road or off in the Pacific Northwest

  1. Seth’s work is perfect and comfortable for long distances. And the “ride in” experience is great. A wonderful host and a comfortable time.

    I stayed with them for 2 nights 😁
