It kind of has a hump that gos over the rear fender so you can attach it to the first fender hole.(like the stock nightster seat only way thiner lower and cooler really slims down the looks. The corbin hollywood that i have I had them trim down as well so i had the gap between the tank but it is much wider then the lepera bare bones. I will post a pick tomorrow if you would like. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for Corbin to fix the bad seat!
Hey skull, did you ever get your barebones installed for the 07 nightster? i'm considering buying one myself, but i'd like to know how it worked out, and maybe see a pic?

I figured this was coming...

I've had a couple of Corbin's on my BMW's and the last one I had, was the heated leather with gel insert, I sent it in for some service and repairs.

Eight weeks, several unaswered emails and a dud of a Customer Service dept and the seat was returned, bad packing/shipping and poor work.

I was dumbfounded that a company of this size treated their customers so badly and was still in business.

What comes around, goes around.

James
