Corbin's Hollywood Solo saddle design is engineered to keep a low profile on your bike while providing good comfort value. We've designed a sculpted riding platform that creates a greater area of body contact, therefore dispersing your weight better... it's a simple matter of geometry really. We call this "ergonomic shaping" and it's one of the things that puts Corbin designs head and shoulders over the other guys.
Naturally, we design the saddle to support your weight more from the outside and take away centralized pressure points. To give you longer range support, the saddle is built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam that provides approximately 50-70 percent more support than the stock foam. Additionally, we've lowered the seating bucket to put you in a more natural riding position and provide a better center of gravity.
Naturally we didn't ignore your need to carry passengers, so we made a cool pillion pad that matches up with your Hollywood Solo and carries the slick line back over the fender. Built up with the same high density foam used in the solo, our pillion offers your passenger a much more supportive ride than the stock seat. Although we've kept the profile low, the Corbin design still provides good riding comfort. Please note we have two models of pillion pad that work with the Hollywood Solo, one works with the Harley-Davidson luggage rack installed, the other is designed to work without it. The Corbin Wizards designed our pillion mounting system around the electrics (rather than over them) to allow a deeper bucket up front which relieves the tailbone pressure associated with the stock seat.
Both the Hollywood Solo and matching passenger pillion include genuine leather seating in your choice of colors and styles. We use leather to provide a perch that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape to provide a personalized fit. Over time your saddle will conform to your body and develop a unique character in fit and appearance. That's one of the great things about a quality leather seat. You can help your leather saddle remain supple and weather resistant by treating it well with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. Your Corbin saddle will be your riding buddy for years.
Hollywood Solo and Pillion mount easily on your V-rod with brackets included and pre-installed on the saddle. The hinging action of your seat remains to provide access to the fuel tank. See complete installation information below.

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.

Corbin Hollywood Solo and Pillion does NOT work with the stock Harley-Davidson components. The Pillion must be ordered to allow the Solo seat to install properly.
Installation: Hollywood Solo installs on your V-Rod like stock with hinge and latch bracket included. Remove your stock front seat according to your owners manual and install the Corbin saddle in it's place. You will need to transfer the seat hinge cable from the OEM unit (very important). Remember to turn the key and gently latch your seat as recommended by Harley, slamming the seat down could break the tab!
Pillion installation: Remove the stock rear seat from your bike according to your owners manual. Corbin's pillion seat slips onto the rear fender bracket like stock and is bolted down under the front solo using the original bolt. That's it, you're done.
Two pillion pad models are available for your V-Rod. If you have the V-Rod Luggage rack or just the chrome plate for the luggage rack you need part #HD-VR-HP-RACK. If you don't have the luggage rack AND you don't have the chrome plate for the luggage rack then you need part #HD-VR-HP.
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.
