Default Need a seat

My Corbin seat is not what it used to be and I'm looking for a replacement. 87 BMW K100RS. If someone comes across something let me know.

I've always had good luck with Corbins, maybe you can get that one rebuilt?

Do what I did. I found a local guy who built a custom seat for my GSX1100G. Took a couple of hours, new foam and shaped to fit and cost $250 when all was done. Better than any overpriced mass mail order seat. If I can find a guy to do seats in Salt Lake City I'm sure you can there.

I talked to Corbin and they will gladly relieve me of $350 to rebuild. Maybe, a local seat builder is the key. Still, if there are any used seats that seem to be in good condition pass it on.

There's something to be said for getting a stock seat back on your bike, Kirk. It's well on it's way to becoming a collectable classic!

I could do the stocker. The wifey, on the other hand, will make my rides lousy without a comfy tush.

Just joined the site and asked the question. We'll see. Thanks- Kirk

Ace, I highly support the recommendation to find a local seatmaker to rebuild your seat. Up in Seattle, I went to Rich's and stood there, telling the guy what to do while he carved and glued. It was great, and I got a perfect seat at the end.

Keep in mind that seats are foam and a cover. The foam can be replaced (and usually improved) with new stuff; the cover can be replaced with any material (I recommend plaid seersucker) you want. Go for it!

airhawk cushions aren't bad if you want to maintain a stock seat.
