“During our local move, our leather reclining couch was damaged. Eric contacted and we scheduled a visit for the repair. Eric needed to spend several hours on the repair, and he did a fantastic job. As we were talking, I asked Eric about motorcycle seat repair as I have a seat that has a tear near the seam. Eric stated that he has done many repairs and could easily repair the tear for me. This is on a 45 year old motorcycle with limited parts available. Eric did a fantastic job on the seat as well, showing his versatility.. I feel very comfortable recommending Eric for any of your needs.”
