This setup gives you boulevard cruising comfort and a slick, low profile look. Hollywood Solo offers a profile that hugs the chassis and fits perfect to the tank and fender yet gives excellent support through our ergonomic shaping. Simply put, the shape of the seat is designed to emulate the shape of the human body to eliminate pressure points and give more square inches of body contact and support. To keep the low, vintage styling and allow for passengers, we also offer a 50's style passenger seat (pillion pad).
Both components are constructed of our high density Comfort Cell® foam for firm support that lasts. Built over a Fibertech basepan that molds to every contour of the machine for unsurpassed fit. Of course, both the saddle and pillion seat ride on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job. Although the seat will feel firm at first, Comfort Cell® foam will not mash down like the soft stock foam and instead provides resilience for hours of cruising comfort. Additionally, our exclusive foam material will break in over time to take on your shape and provide a tailored fit to your body.
Although the passenger pillion is built flatter and lower, Corbin's foam material still gives excellent support that lasts. Simple to install, the Corbin pillion bolts up easily to the Hollywood solo and the two mount to your bike together into stock locations on your bike. Pillion pad comes complete with brackets preinstalled. Hollywood solo uses two brackets transferred from your stock seat and will then mount to stock locations on your bike using the original screws.
For an ultra cool, badboy look you can run the Hollywood solo without a pillion pad and show off that dynamic Honda Retro fender. Notice how the bucket shaping of the saddle cradles your body for total support and helps keep you in place on the bike. Over the long haul, this helps to eliminate rider fatigue which means you'll enjoy your riding experience more. For a more custom look, we offer a range of options for your new saddle all included making the Hollywood solo an awesome value you will enjoy for years.
Both the Solo and Pillion include genuine leather seating in your choice of colors and styles. We have a wide range of leather materials to suit your taste from the Faux Ostrich seating shown here to a plain black subtle model... you make the call. Leather provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam for a personalized fit. Just be sure to care for it properly with a good conditioner like our Saddle Cream. Your leather saddle will age gracefully and develope it's own unique character.
To clean up the installation at the rear fender, we offer a chromed, billet thumbscrew. Triple plate chromed for a very nice look and machined from Billet aluminum. Available in several sizes to meet a range of uses on your bike. The VTX 1300R fender location uses a 6mm screw, so our #ACST-6m is the perfect addition for a clean look and simple installation.
