    i've been thinking of trying to make my own custom seat. i'd prefer to start with a solo seat and rack and was wondering if anybody has one laying around that they'd wanna trade for a corbin with passenger backrest.

    its a corbin from 1988. the tag says "mike corbin" on it. its much more comfy than the corbin i had on my last bike. its a nice seat and i'd rather not cut it up.

    anybody?

    I might be interested in that trade. That would work on my '94 wouldn't it? Mine's the two-tone black and yellow stocker. Maybe slightly discolored but not that you'd notice. Any details or pics on yours?

    lets see if anyone happens to have a beatup solo w/rack first.
    if not a stock dual would be fine i suppose.
    i got your PM.

    hmmm wrong seat wrong day.

    I have a stocker I rode the year with (sucks)
    And a Corbin that needs recovered.

    Thinking a custom recover and slight mod.

    Unless someone is a masochist and wants a stocker for a trade.

    Obviously, I should read a little closer. As for single seat setups, I'm thinking of going with the Siebenrock stuff since it seems reasonably priced. I can't see paying the premium for OEM if a custom re-padding is going to be needed anyway. Show us what you come up with and good luck.

    whats the total on the siebenrock seat and rack? i'd forgotten all about those guys. their site doesn't seem clear as to a total price for everything i'd need.

    anybody want to buy a corbin?

    At current exchange rates, the Siebenrock setup is about three hundred bucks. And I'd be interested in a price on your old Corbin too, if it's still available.
