Classic solo is designed to provide maximum rider comfort combined with a classy, nostalgic look for solo riders. Provides the use of our removable rider's backrest for 14 inches of vertical back support. Our sculpted seating position gives maximized body contact and provides true touring comfort. Neutralized seat platform offers an easier reach to the ground and a more ergonomic position on the bike.
Corbin's removable rider backrest is simple to install and adjusts easily to your riding posture. Slide the backrest shaft into the internal hardware of the Solo and lock it in place with a single bolt. You can then set the backrest position to your preferred setting and lock it in place with the easily accessible adjustment screw... no need to remove the saddle to accomplish this. Choose from a variety of backrest styles to suit your taste although we recommend the #02-S Ovalbac for a good combination of looks and support.
The Classic Solo is designed to be run on the bike when you're setup for solo riding and provides a very clean look. Because of the slick chrome strips HD designed on the fender, we didn't tool up a passenger pillion for this bike. Another slick option for your saddle setup is the variety of finishing plates offered for the rear of the Ovalbac series backrests. Along with our standard leather look ABS model, we offer a carbon-fiber look or for a little extra you can get one prepainted gloss black or our new chromed steel model! An excellent touch!
Choose from a range of leather styles and colors for a custom touch on your new seat. Leather will provide a perch that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Be sure to care for your leather saddle with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. With proper care, your seat will age gracefully developing a unique character and will be your riding buddy for years.
Available in plain black for a stealthy look or add chrome studs for a bit more nostalgia. Includes our elegant new flame stitch pattern with winged wheel design that provides a tasteful and artistic touch in a variety of thread colors. On this seat we chose materials that coordinate with the CVO saddlebags and trim. It features: Natural Grain black leather seating, Asphalt sides, Black welt, Black Faux Alligator stud bands and flame stitch pattern.
There's nothing quite like heated seating to raise your core body temperature during those chilly morning rides. As an option, we offer an integrated heater unit under the leather seating in either of the Classic Solo models. Heat is controlled by a switch located on the left side of the saddle and temperature is maintained automatically via an integrated controller. Installation is simple with a wiring pigtail included that integrates with your factory fuse box.
If you're riding solo and would like to add a bit of storage to your Softail, check out our new Glovebox. Bolting onto your #02-S Corbin backrest in place of a finishing plate to provide convenient locking storage. Sized just ride to keep all your essentials like cell phone, maps, water bottles and spare gloves. Prepainted gloss black and fully lined to protect your cargo. Sorry, the Glovebox will not work with passenger pillion in place. For complete info, just check out our Accessories section.

FIBERTECH™ BASEPAN: A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body. Click on the button at left to learn more...
COMFORT CELL® FOAM: The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort! For the complete story just click the button.
ERGONOMIC SHAPING: A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle's foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
PATENTED MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY: Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about, just click the button for More Info
GENUINE LEATHER: We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste. For more information about leather seating just click away.

KEY LOCK INSTALLATION: This saddle model uses a new mounting system designed by Corbin to allow installation and removable with a simple key lock. Once the included brackets are installed, the saddle can be removed easily by just inserting and turning the key. Need a demo? Just click the button.

Classic Solo seating: 13.5" wide x 15" long Back support: 6.5" w/o backrest, 16" with #02-S backrest

Classic solo installs by sliding the rear seat tab into the Corbin bracket installed on the H-D fender. Then just lower the front of the saddle onto the stainless steel lock pin located near the tank mount. Both of these are simple to install and well within the skills of the weekend mechanic.
We do not recommend leathers with heavy textures (ie Ostich & Alligator) in the seating panels with intricate stitch patterns like the one on these seats.
Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel.... don't let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn't buy vinyl boots would you?
WARNING: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
