Click or Tap to Activate Item
An outstanding Classic style Solo seat for the new Sporty. Maximum rider comfort combined with a classy, nostalgic look. Provides for our removable backrest for over 13 inches of vertical back support. Our sculpted seating position gives maximized body contact and provides 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 posture. Just 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 where you want it and lock it in place with the easily accessible adjustment screw... no need to remove the saddle. Choose from a variety of backrest styles to suit your taste although we recommend the #02-S Ovalbac® for a balance of looks and support.
Classic solo saddle and backrest provide excellent support for riding while the shaping in the nose allows you to slide forward for ground reach at stop signs. Looks excellent with the bare fender providing a slick solo look. A chromed button head screw in the old mounting location cleans this up nicely.
We offer two models of the Classic Solo design: Standard Classic Solo provides for average and taller riders, while CLOSE Solo gives improved reach for riders of smaller stature. Close solo has a narrower nose for better reach to the pavement and a seating position closer to the bars. To choose the appropriate model, measure from the tank to where your posterior sits on the bike. Compare this to the seating measurement here: Classic Solo: 15.00 inches CLOSE Solo: 13.25 inches
We've incorporated a new saddle mounting system that uses a key lock. This makes it extremely simple to install and remove the seat as desired. We build this model to look sly, but use our high density Comfort Cell® foam for a firm supportive ride. Dished shaping provides good contoured support and minimizes the tendency to slide in the saddle.
Choose from a range of leather styles and colors for a custom touch. 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. Optional chrome studs provide an added nostalgic touch (included at no charge, just specify).
To further customize the look of your bike, we can provide a variety of back plate options on our Ovalbac® series backrests. Our standard back plate has a leather look or you choose from any of the styles listed below. We can even provide a backing plate that is prepainted gloss black for just a little extra or, of course, the slick new chromed steel model shown here. Ovalbac® finishing plates change out easily with two screws and a little Locktite® (or other thread lock compound).
NOTE: Designed to fit Sportster models with the 3.3 gallon fuel tank.
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. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider's profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option! Click the button for additional info...
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: 12" wide x 15" long Close Solo seating: 12" wide x 13.25" long Approx. Seat height: 27"
Installation: Corbin's Classic Solo uses an all new key-lock system for simple on & off installation. Hardware comes preinstalled on the saddle for ease of use and comes with two keys.
To enable the key lock system, install the included bracket onto your chassis. This will provide a latch pin on the bike for saddle to mount to. Slide the nose of the Classic Solo into place with the tongue into the chassis and lower the solo onto the latching pin installed previously. The saddle will latch easily to the pin and secure it in place. To remove, simple turn the key and lift off the saddle.
Fits 2007 and up Sportster models with the 3.3 Gallon Fuel tank.
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*
