Leightons

Postby mikeydpippin » Mon Dec 19, 2016 6:25 pm

Two seats in as many years, and both fit perfectly.
Been trying to save a few quid buying via e bay, and find no seat fits my Ajay model 16, contact Leightons, what can I say, yet again, excellent quality and looks the part.
Very knowledgeable when it comes to seats for the marque.
Just hope company's like this doesn't go the same way as Andrew engineering.

Didn't even realise they were closed? When was that?

As far as I'm aware, they (Andrew Engineering) haven't closed yet but, due to imminent retirement, have stopped manufacturing. Therefore they will, cease trading when they've sold their existing stock.

I too cannot recommend Leighton's highly enough. When I was looking of a seat for my G15 Andrew sent me a base and foam to modify (on trust) and I sent it back after a bit of cutting, to fit around a non standard rear mudguard, and received a perfect seat in a matter of days. Only when I had the seat was I invoiced, and the cost was only the extra postage higher than the cost of a standard seat!

Real shame about Andrew engineering.

This quote appears to relate to Andrews Engineering but in context could be taken as referring to Leightons. Indeed I heard it mentioned at last nights Section meeting that Leightons were closing so I rang them this morning and was assured they have no intention of so doing and have many ordesr in hand.

In view of the confusion which has arisen I thought it was worth clarifying the position

I've amended Janet's post to make it clearer.

I have just bought a Model 31 CSR seat from Leightons and I am very pleased with it, superb fit and workmanship.
I'm only old on the outside.
