Question Locking loop on the seat

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the plate on the stock seat with the locking mechanism bar is the same one as on the corbin seat.

Some background: Bought my bike used with only the corbin seat. Since then the locking bar broke and was lost, so I fabricated a new loop and welded it onto the existing seat plate. This broke again, and was re-welded. Yesterday it broke again. I was thinking of just buying a new plate, but need to know if a stock one will fit the corbin seat.

Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death…

From what I understand, the Corbin seat uses the stock seat as the base.

If you are welding something onto the seat base then it's not stock. the stock seat base is plastic.

The Corbin seat uses a fiberglass base pan with an industrial looking locking loop bolted to the bottom. You can have a Corbin seat built on the stock pan if you like but other than the bungee hooks why would you want to?
