Two soon to become three. A standard Iron seat original on the bike, & a standard 48 seat. I like the look of the 48 but there's a tendency to slide back on accelerating. Just ordered a Biltwell Sporty 8 to see how that goes.

Eek - I've got 5.

From experience, I urge those looking to listen when someone says go with a Mustang!

Stock low pro 2-up
- seat that came on the rigid mount custom models

Corbin dual tour
- off the shelf build with a cheap harrison's front backrest (can't use this seat with my sissybar)

Stock 2-up
- the fluffier seat that came on the rigid mount non-custom models (friend of mine found it in a 'big trash day' pile on his road, clean and unbroken!)

Corbin classic solo
- bomber jacket black leather with a cheap harrison's backrest

Mustang Wide Vintage Solo
- Stays on the bike...I'm happy with this one. I should have listened to everyone before going with Corbin at first. I just don't like that the backrest on the Mustang is only slipped in.

For anyone with a short inseam and needs to be lower to the ground, the Mustang day tripper (comes in two covers, smooth or pleated) is thinner than stock, is thick and firm. I have bony "sit bones" and I stay comfortable for hours.

factory seat, rapidly changed by a solo police sprung seat, and now, as the lady of the house bitches, I'm mouting right now a sprung buddy seat, 1940's copy.

Default New Corbin Hollywood Solo Today

Greetings, fellow Forum Members,

Just scored this sweet looking Corbin Hollywood Solo Brand New in the box!

It was a new old stock I nailed on ebay.

I'm searching high and low now for a matching Ppad.

The long two up that came on it was a really nice one that is now going to hang in the man cave next to the bar.

New Corbin Hollywood Solo Seat




My old two up below.
