***SOLD***CORBIN Gunfighter & Lady Saddle (fits Honda 919 CB900f)

Arguably the best Hornet seat every made! It's in excellent condition, no rips, tears, holes or repairs. Always garage stored (often under a cover). That's about all there is to it. $300 and it'll show up at your house!

Thanks all - ride on!

wow.....killer deal. If I didn't just have my Sargent done, I'd scoop this up in a heartbeat! I'm still tempted. Do you have this on eBay as well?

Common Sense...so rare, it's kind of like a SUPER POWER!

That's cool CB 919. I really like the way those look. The sport one with the tapered back is really nice. But, I've never ridden with one. They certainly make some of the nicest saddles!

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm curious as to how well it mounts? I guess Corbin makes their own seat pan as it's nothing like a 919 pan I've seen. I don't see the plastic hooks that anchor the back of the seat. It looks like the only points of mount contact are the front and around the lock. Maybe it's an improvement over the OEM pan, it just looks strange/foreign to me. Does it move around less than a stock pan when it's mounted on the bike?

I know it seems weird, but I have the OEM saddle, and the Corbin is more stable. There's no flex or wiggle with the Corbin. It's solid.

Also this seat is ***SOLD***

If admin would like to update that, I'd be grateful. Thanks!

The stock seat flops around at the tank--the corbin is solid. Fits better than OEM. Also love the height of the pillion area--supports a second ventura bag over the seat with no rack beneath perfectly.

Thanks Bryce, that's why I was asking. I added two layers of plastic tubing on the two rear seat perches (like about an inch of 5/16 then another layer of ⅜ tubing over the first), and a layer of folded cardboard with duct tape around it on the front to lessen the seat play on mine. There's still a little bit, but it's much better than it was. I'll come up with something better than the cardboard for the front soon, it was more like an experiment
