I would say that seat was at least a $1000.00 when new. So, I would say $400 would be a fair price. This is strictley a guess so please don't be mad at me if I'm way off!! I know Corbin seats ARE expensive!!

Hi Hawker22, I was wondering is this seat from your 1500 or another bike. I'm asking because the pans are different for the diff models. Thanks. Old Hawkeye.:)

No, this seat is locally advertised, and I am getting the hots for it. I am setting up a time to go strap it on and try it.

Another view.

ime yo go strap it on for a try out.

Hawker if you want comfort than that is the seat for you .. I didn't realize how lucky I was that my 96 1500 SE came with that exact seat until a friend got hurt and asked me to take his 1500 with the stock seat to his house 150 miles away. About the 75 mile mark my rear and lower back were aching, on my bike I have done several 500-700 mile days without any discomfort at all. If the price is reasonable I recommend jumping on it !!

I see the passenger backrest now.thanks fix it.
You said you were gonna go try it,well I just came from putting 40,000 miles on a mustang seat,and the first few trips on my corbin seat,I'll admitt I did'nt like it at all,but now I do believe they are the best seat.
So I would jump on it even at 500bucks and you & your butt will learn to love it.

I don't know if your still looking but here is a real nice one on ebay Item number: 150307136458
Thanks for that. Yes, it is a nice seat, but I am not fussy about that colour pattern, and I already have those controls on my bike. Actually, I snagged the one that I was looking at and it is now mounted on my 1500.

DONE. It is actually quite a bit darker than the flash makes it look on the bike. Feels different, but feels GOOD.

Sure looks comfy :). It also goes well with the color of your bike .



So when does the bidding start on your old seat ? :baffled:

Your butt will thank you many times over.Like I said before I think the stock Wing seat is the biggest downfall of all models of Wings(including the ones with the ugly headlights from what I've read).

Thanks all. Can't wait to take a longish ride with it. THAT may have to wait until next spring though. But I will get some more short hauls in before winter. Ya, I sorta like it, just like I sorta like the white bike, but if I had my choice, I would have the candy apple red. Then this seat would not be right. Actually, I got the seat from a guy who owned a Candy apple red 1500.
