**SOLD**FS corbin seat $250 + shipping

Gunfighter + lady Corbin seat with grey beading in good used condition. It dose have some stretch marks on the leather they have always been there and never gotten better or worse. It dose take special lighting conditions to highlite the marks but I operate on the (NO SURPRIZES) ethic. It also has a hidden hole for a backrest.

I don't mean to falsely alarm you, but it appears that the front forks of your bike may have been stolen!

Still up for sale.
I'm in no hurry to sell cause I'll use it for longer trips a couple times a year.

There is one hole covered by the Corbin logo on the back of the seat. The hole is for a 5/8 square bar. Yes I'll post a picture for you and yes a trade sounds interesting!

There is (was) an "aftermarket" Corbin backrest clone a few years back.
The savings (against new) were significant; a friend bought one for his Corbin and told me it was fine.

I just did a trivial "motorcycle backrest corbin" and looked for non-Corbin models.

I've had both the clone and a real Corbin. There is no comparison. Get the Corbin. IMO, of course.
