And now for the finished seat ..

Form fitted to the tank, contour sets you forward and its narrow up front so it works good standing. Rode 60 miles home and it fits great. Corbin seats typically start off a little stiff, then break in after some miles. As is, feels pretty good. Should just get better over time.

how does the width and seat height compare with Corbins sock solo seats. they have two sizes a holly wood and the classic.

I have been thinking corbin as well, but was looking at one of their standard seats. Though I do like how yours goes up on top of the tank a little

They started with the clasic stock solo seat and then cut the front of the seat pan because the gas tank is farther back than the stock tank. Then molded the pan extension up and over the tank.

The stock solo is about 1/2-1" lower in the middle and the bucket is farther back. My first test ride of the foam was like that - felt too low and too far back for me, so we added foam to the back and bottom to raise the height and push forward. Then the sides were tapered inwards a little more and the back edge rounded. I think the width was about the same though. On the side stitching, he put two horizontal stitch lines to break up the panel to give it the illusion of not being as tall as it is.

I would talk to Julio Ayala at Corbin at 831-902-5954 or 800-538-7035. He is the wizzard that did mine. Just let him know what you want and Its similar to mine (he will remember - everyone there was looking at the bike). Id be happy to take my bike there so he has the reference to replicate it. It should be easier since there wouldnt be any pan work being done. Just foam and cover.
