If this was MY bike, here's what I'd do... First off, set aside the stock puffy, stuffmuffin solo seat along with the pillion and fender rack. Second, remove the anti-scratch contact paper from the fender (you won't need it with our seats) and run the bike with just the Corbin solo as shown in the fifth image above. Looks nice doesn't it? "But what about passengers?" you may ask. Well, on a shelf in the garage (waiting for the significant other's desire to go for a putt) would be a Corbin King & Queen style pillion pad. It installs easily along with the factory fender rack, so there's maximum versatility and excellent comfort to boot. Integrated backrest gives your passenger loads of support and a nostalgic visual appeal to the bike.
This particular Solo & Pillion configuration is designed specifically for the Softail Deluxe and is made to integrate with the Harley-Davidson chrome grab rail and rear fender rack. These parts are standard on the Deluxe model, but you can convert your Heritage Classic to this setup if you want to get the parts from your local H-D dealer.
Corbin's Classic solo provides the use of our removable rider's backrest for over 12 inches of vertical back support. Sculpted seating position gives maximized body contact and provides true touring comfort with a bucket that gives plenty of lower back support. Our neutralized seat platform offers an easier reach to the ground and a more ergonomic position on the bike.
Corbin's optional removable rider backrest is simple to install and adjusts easily to your riding posture. Slide the backrest shaft into the internal hardware of the Classic 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. 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. View the Accessories tab on this page for complete backrest info.
Passenger pillion is built to maximize seating area with a dished shape that provides better weight distribution. This will eliminate hot spots and increase passenger's riding range. We've designed this specially to work with your factory luggage rack and keep a very cool look on your bike. Installs with or without the rider's backrest in the solo seat and includes black ABS finishing plate on the rear. Triple rib design of the backing plate matches the three bars of the luggage rack for a totally integrated look. In these photos, we've had our finishing plate custom painted to match the bike, but the standard finishing plate comes in a leather pattern ABS. If you would like your saddle made with a smooth plate suitable for painting, please specify on the order form.
All components include genuine leather seating for a luxurious perch that breathes with your body. To match the aesthetics of the Deluxe, this model uses our standard natural grain leather with a tasteful tuck & roll stitch pattern, Classic leather skirts and chrome studs. Passenger pillion is dressed similarly with natural leather seating and Classic leather sides.
Just a reminder, this saddle is specially designed for the Harley-Davidson Deluxe model. It will not work on other Softail models unless you purchase the grab rail and luggage rack from your Harley Dealer. Corbin solo and pillion will work in conjunction with stock components. Installation of both components is accomplished with all required brackets included. Once the brackets are installed on the motorcycle, the solo seat will install and remove with our integrated key lock for simplicity.
Solo configuration: To make it look really clean, replace the stock large white plastic washers with a couple of smaller black neoprene ones and get a pair of chrome acorn nuts for the seat rail studs. Perfect the look with a lay-down license place holder... just our humble opinions of course.
UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.
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.
CORBIN BACKREST SYSTEM: The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin's backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort.

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*
Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
