    Default Worsham Castle Cycle Leather

    Couple of days ago I received my solo seat that I plan to use on my 1944 U model.Michael did a outstanding job on the seat pan that I sent him.The color of the leather is dark walnut and it is just beautiful.His attention to detail and his knowledgle of how these were originally manufactured is outstanding,such as the trademark #'s he stamped in leather binding strips and the small tufts of goat hair he glued in each breather hole on the seat pan.He mentioned that in 1944,they used goat hair for the seat padding.I highly recommend him to those who need a seat restored.

    I would agree... Michael Paquette's work is awsome. I have two of his seats, and just about ready to order two more. I have never met Michael in person, but dealt with him over the phone... Here is his website. http://worshamcastle.com/

    Don't get him confused with a guy by the name of Wayne Delgrosso in North Carolina that is trying to jump in on the business by going by worsham-castle on ebay... more info on this joker on George's feedback section. He was using Michael's seats and then misrepresenting them as originals. Michael stopped doing work for Wayne, hence Wayne retaliated with a bunch of childish BS. Buyer BEWARE!!!!!

    Everybody Agrees He Does Great Work. My Question Is If You Go Thru All That Trouble Of Glueing Goat Hair To The Vent Holes To Make It Look Original. Why Isn't The Seat Just Made With Goat Hair Padding? Then 50 Years Down The Road Someone Would Say Look At This Seat The Workmenship Is Just Like An Orig. Instead Of Saying Look This Is How People At The Turn Of The Century Used To Fake Orig Seats. I'm Not Trying To Offend Anyone. I Would Like To Know Is Goat Or Horse Hair Just Too Expensive Or Is It That The Customer Requires A Softer Seat?
