Emma's Norton Commando
We get a lot (and we do mean a LOT!) of really nice bikes in our ride in department, but sometimes one of them has a little sumthin' that makes us stop and take note.

This 1970 Norton Commando built by Emma B is a perfect example of this phenomenon. This British classic is more resto-mod than Concours restoration, but it was so tastefully done that it looks like it could have come this way from the factory.

Notice the painted fenders, the 16" wheel that allows for more modern rubber and of course that gorgeous metallic Midnight Green paint and 24 carat goldleaf logo. As Emma pointed out to us, this bike actually has less chrome on it than an original bike... instead what you see is polished aluminum and stainless steel. Wow.

Emma did all the work herself except for the seat, which just happens to be a very popular part of ours. If you want to check out our Norton Commando seat or a few more pics of this nice bike, just click on over to our Norton page HERE.





Can-Am Spyder F3
We just got our hands on the new Sport Crusing Spyder model from Can-Am... or as it's commonly called, the Spyder F3.

This newest model from the folks at BRP has a very cool, agressive look and is the first of its kind to feature adjustable ergonomics via movable footpegs and four different length handlebars. Naturally Corbin will set out to perfect these ergo's with a touring quality saddle.

It's a bit early to speculate on any details, but keep an eye on this space for continuing info while the R&D team sets to work.

Corbin's R&D team is hard at it with a selection of hot new toys in the works. Keep an eye on this page and our New Products section for fresh releases.





Indian Scout Solo
The first of our new saddle designs for the 2015 Indian Scout is now available!

In keeping with the vintage design of the Scout, the Corbin team started our product offerings with a Classic Solo Saddle. Engineered to provide the best possible combination of form and function with looks that fit perfect to the bike and a wide range of color and material options.

Corbin's Classic Solo provides excellent comfort with ergonomically engineered seating and firm support via our exclusive Comfort Cell foam. This saddle also has the option of electric heat and accepts our removable rider backrest for added long range support.

Get all the details by checking our NEW PRODUCTS PAGE and look for our Scout Brave saddle in the next couple days!





Vetter Fuel Economy Challenge
Craig Vetter's Fuel Economy Challenge will be adding the Hollister Rally to the calendar and will have a Challenge Ride departing from Corbin's Workshop on July 4th 2015.

Racing for the Right Reasons! Ride a hundred miles at posted speed limits and see who consumes the least energy as measured in dollars and cents. All classes are open including Gasoline, Diesel, Electric and anything else you can think of.

Depart 9am Saturday July 4, 2015 from the Corbin factory in Hollister, California. Ride 50 miles through beautiful California countryside to a short break at a coffee shop. Then back to historic Hollister and a ride up the main drag during the rally.

For complete information, keep an eye on our Hollister Rally page and also at CraigVetter.com.





2015 Indian Scout
It's our first day back in the shop from The Holidays and we've already lined up some new scoots to work on.

Mike spent the afternoon getting aquainted with the new Indian Scout so we could get right on developing seats for it. First hand experience dictates the stock tush cushion won't get you much past 100 miles so we're expediting this baby.

Development continues on a pair of race/touring seats for the Polaris Slingshot and two seat models and a Fairing for the Triumph Thunderbird Commander. We also just got a line on the new Yamaha FZ-07 and are hoping to bring that into R&D in the next couple of days.

As always, watch THIS PAGE for new products as they become available.





30 Year Anniversary
That's right, three decades! Think about that for a second... when Vince started at Corbin, TV dramas Dynasty and Dallas ruled the airwaves. So much time has passed that Dallas is BACK on TV as a new generation! * Whew *

A hearty congratulations to Vince for his outstanding contribution and longevity here at America's favorite saddlemaker. With the earning of his 30 year plaque (presented by Mike Corbin during a staff assembly), Vince joins a very exclusive club of just four people. Namely Mike Corbin, wife Beverly, Rosa Sanchez and now Vince.

Lately Vince has been busy developing the latest incarnation of Corbin's Sparrow electric car. You can see some of that right HERE.





The Slingshot Has Arrived!
As you may recall, Corbin has a bit of a history with three wheeled vehicles. So when we heard that Polaris was going to release an open cockpit trike, we signed on the dotted line and begged for an early model.

Over our Thanksgiving holiday break, the beastie finally arrived and Mike even had time to put some mileage on it before bringing it into the shop where we promptly lined up for our turn at the wheel.

As luck would have it, there was a break in the weather just long enough to snap a couple pics and wear a little rubber off the tires. This also gave us the opportunity to come up with some ideas for new Slingshot products naturally.

As always, we would love to hear your requests and you can keep up with our Slingshot progress HERE.





New Sparrow in Development
The Sparrow concept has been dormant for years, but that spark has always remained (pun intended). With components and technology much more abundant now, Mike is resurecting the Sparrow design for 2015.

The Sparrow 2 shape has been in the works for awhile now but the finished design in drawing ever closer. We've pulled molds off the design and are now breaking it down into individual components. Not a lot of detail to supply now, but we thought a few behind the scenes pics might be fun. Enjoy!
