Part of a series of modular seating components for the H-D Street Rod. Standard Hollywood Solo features a roomier seating position moved back approximately two inches from the stock seating posture while our Close version keeps the rider seated closer to the bars for an easier reach. Both are sculpted for an ergonomic fit to the human body for better weight distribution and support. Using our exclusive high density Comfort Cell foam allows a low profile that will support you for hours. Corbin front saddle models work with a coordinating passenger pillion.
We offer two models of the Hollywood Solo; the CLOSE model and the Standard model. Close model is designed for riders who want an easy reach to the bars and pavement. If you feel cramped by the position of the stock seat, then the Corbin Standard version is for you with seating 2" further from the bars. Click HERE for a side by side comparison of the two seat models. The Close Hollywood Solo has a seat pocket placed similar to the stock seat with a slightly lower platform.
Corbin's passenger pillion accepts a removable backrest for added copilot comfort and security. Normally we wouldn't built backrest support into a low profile style like this, but the ignition module on the fender required a slightly higher seating platform which left us room for the hardware. Corbin backrest installs with a single screw under the saddle and adjusts easily to passenger's profile. Like the saddles themselves, our backrest is sculpted to fit the human body for maximum weight distribution and comfort.
Notice how the Corbin saddle maintains a smooth, low profile line even with backrest hardware inside. While developing this setup, we engineered our basepan to mold over the electronic components on the fender in a much smoother and lower fashion which gave us more flexibility of design. Our Fibertech base material provides a rigid platform to support the foam and assure the carefully designed ergonomic shaping remains intact. It also allows us to build a very close fit to the fender and chassis for a custom look. Because of this close fit, we have a pillion pad specially designed to work with the HD fender baseplate / backrest if you have it.
All components include genuine leather seating panels in your choice of colors and styles. On this page we show a plain black model that gives a subtle and classy appearance and also one covered completely in our grey faux snakeskin material for a bit more radical look. Leather provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Naturally, all material options available for your saddle(s) are also available for your Corbin backrest.
Notice how the sculpted shaping of the Corbin components fit the human body for good support. Not only does this do a better job of dispersing your weight, but it helps to eliminate hot spots. Our neutralized seating position helps to eliminate sliding in the saddle which in turn reduces fatigue. We incorporate a key lock mounting system into the Hollywood Solo to help secure your sadde investment against thieves while maintaining simple operation at fuel stops. Bracket installation is simple with common hand tools.
Corbin's Ovalbac series backrests have removable finishing plates for an added custom touch. Our standar plate is a leather look ABS, but we can also supply a Carbon-Fiber or Aluminum look. For just a little extra we can even supply one prepainted gloss black or a chromed steel model. If you'd like to add a bit of storage capacity, we offer a new Glovebox design that bolts up in place of the finishing plate. Providing enough storage for essentials like bottled water, spare gloves, cell phones, pda, maps and keys, the Glovebox is very handy. Currently available in primer or Gloss black and soon to be available prepainted to match your Street Rod's paint as shown! For complete Glovebox info, click here.
Notice how closely the Corbin pillion fits and emulates the shaping of the HD fender. Because of this we will be offering two models of the passenger pillion; one fits directly with the fender as shown, the other fits with the sissybar / backrest assembly available from Harley-Davidson. Either will work perfectly with the Corbin Hollywood Solo front, but not with the stock components. Due to the size of the "box" built into the stock basepan to cover the ignition module, we were unable to make our saddles work with the stock components... sorry.

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.
Rider seating (standard): 12.5" wide x 14" long Rider seating (Close): 11.5" wide x 12.5" long Passenger: 10" wide x 10" long Approx seat height: 31"
Due to the shaping of our basepan and working around the components on the fender, Corbin components do not interchange with the stock pieces!
Installation: Our front and rear saddles come with all hardware required for immediate installation right out of the box. Our included latch bracket installs with common hand tools and keeps the hinge mount system with the addition of a lock to secure your investment in a quality saddle.
Front saddle comes with a hinge/latch bracket preinstalled on the saddle and a key lock bracket you mount to existing locations on your chassis. Once the bracket is installed, the Corbin saddle will hinge just like your stock seat but with the addition of a locking latch.
Rear saddle uses the tongue in the rear and two mounting points in the front that use stock bolts. Just slide the saddle into place, slip fiber washers under the mounting tabs and secure with two bolts. Simple!
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.

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*
