Info on Baldwin Seats

I've got a '09 Versys that the PO put a Baldwin tall seat on.

I'm trying to find more info on this seat. I've seen some very favorable write-ups (mostly in this forum), but can't find anything else. Is Baldwin still in business? Do they have a website?

I'd like to know things like, how much taller is this seat than stock? What did it originally sell for? Will it fit other year Versys?

Thanks.

Their website and Facebook page disappeared within the last couple of months, so I suspect they may be closed. Your seat should fit 08+ model years. You would probably have to measure your seat height to know for sure, because Loren would a seat as tall as you wanted. The price was probably somewhere between $400 and $550 depending on if the pillion seat was re-done.

I put a tall baldwin with gel pad and leather cover with blue piping on my 09. Can't remember how much taller it was but the cost was right at $750.00 after shipping. Here are some photos with the set and a stock seat next to it.... When i sold it i let it go for $490.00 shipped...
