Good luck on the sale, that's the best looking Corbin I've seen. Usually the back half of their seats look like a loaf of bread.
Great price for a one-of-a-kind seat.

I've got a Seargent that's a little lower profile if you'd be interested in some sort of trade.

I'll post a pic as soon as I can, it has the upgraded foam and one of the better coverings I guess. Originally from Ken, so you know it was top of the line.


Or if that doesn't interest you someone let me know if you want mine so I can purchase this. I'd like something with a little deeper pocket and height.

If he's not interested in any sort of trade and someone else is and this Corbin is still around let me know and I'll sell this outright and buy the Corbin.

Similar seating characteristics to the stock seat with the premium foam and covering.

Someone make me an offer on mine than so I can get this one.

How many times have you scene on this forum two of the main premium seats up for grabs, much less at the same time?



For those who are wondering, the Seargent retains more of the factory profile seat. Would make a better seat for in the twisties as you can position yourself where you need to be, where the Corbin places you more into a pocket. Corbin adds a little height, the Seargent remains about the same.


The foam makes a world of difference though in any rides over an hour (my opinion) and I really like the looks over the factory with the covering and seams to break the lines up.

Those are my observations, I would like to add a little extra height and since 98% of my riding is going in a straight line I'd prefer to have a deeper pocket.

Well since this one is sold mine will be staying with me until I find another similar Corbin.

Bought two many toys in the past six weeks with another one coming this weekend (Ruger No.1 and a stripped AR lower receiver) so I couldn't afford to have two seats around and decide which one I prefered.

Thanks for the interest to all of those who inquired. Maybe next time?
