|Pacific Coast Star has been building the "Potato
Chip" style seat since 2000. When one of the owners could not
ride on the stock seat for more than 30 minutes at a time because of
lower back problems (aggravated by a very poor seat design) he decided
to see what he could do to fix the stock seat before plopping down a
fistful of cash for a new aftermarket seat which resulted in our "TourChoice Original" Style Seat. With the success of that seat, soon requests for a
more custom lower seat were being asked for. The
Potato Chip name came from the very thin
low cut style which still retained enough padding to remain comfortable.
Actually, very comfortable.
The results of the Potato Chip is a completely custom, ultra sleek, seamless seat. Put this on your bike, and you will instantly grab attention with the new custom style your bike will have! The average modification will lower your ride height about 2 - 3 inches. It will improve comfort and support, greatly improve control and footing at slow speeds or stop lights, and enhance the sleek lines of your bike. Finally, a seat that will make you feel like your part of the bike, not just sitting on it, without needing to "break the bank". For an even lower ride, check out our ULTIMATE SLAM Package for each of the bikes which includes our lowering kit with the seat and a 10% discount on the entire package.
Through our unique "Seat Exchange" program we offer a "100% ride it first" satisfaction guarantee. Once you place your order, we will hand build a seat for you and ship it to you. Once you receive your new seat, you are able to try it out for 2 weeks (try that with one of the other pricey aftermarket seat companies). Put as many miles on it as you would like. If you love it (and we think you will), keep it. Then return your old stock seat* back to us with the included Return shipping label**. If for some reason you don't love your new seat, just return our seat to us. We will refund the cost of the seat to you. But we're confident you’re going to love your new seat. Since 1999 well over 95% of our customers have.
If you have any questions about our Seat Exchange program, please Contact Us. We're happy to help out and answer any questions you may have.
*Seat Cores must be OEM Stock seats in good condition
with no scuffs or tears or damage. If you have questions or concerns
about the condition of your return seat, please
us first. We can generally help out. Un-returned or unacceptable
core seats subject the purchaser to the full OEM replacement cost of
the seat. By purchasing a seat, the purchaser authorizes PCS to charge
any replacement costs to the Credit Card on file
(Be sure to read the core
charge information page!). Please return as soon as possible to
avoid any charges, if there are any unforeseen problems please
call us and we will be happy to help in any way we can. We want to make
your seat purchase as simple and enjoyable as possible.
