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.

I have the one it came with in my profile pic, one repop that goes with the springs in the seat tubes, and one fat ass police model I'll have to fabricate a setup for and upholster, too.

An embarrassment of riches!
