    Yeah I have 2 'Solo Classics' left still:
    The plain black leather one Au$450; and
    the plain brown leather Au$550.

    All of my Corbin backrests (Corbin and aftermarket to fit) are still available and vary in price.

    Recently bought this from Peter @Ishrub. Have done a few rides on it and so thought i would let you all know what i think.
    c2.JPG

    First off, the seat drops straight into the bike like it was made for it!..a small adjustment out on the attaching bolt underneath...it just screws back easily with a crescent spanner.
    When i sat on the seat it was firm under my bum and upper legs but when you get the feet up you just feel real comfortable.
    The sitting position is slightly forward and down from the standard factory seat and my knees are a tad higher, not in a bad way tho.
    No sore bum so far and i am happy i made the purchase.
    Peter is great to deal with and the seat came packaged and wrapped in bubble wrap in a secure cardboard box.
    Thanx Peter.

    Glad your happy. I still think that old seat stitching pattern is the best I have seen. Corbin do not do it that way anymore :(

    Yep as per Post #1 and the photos there:

    I had a look for the photos in post #25 but they are no longer visible to me so I will try and post again here. The rough cut edges, rivets and pleats in the leather are all Corbin factory! ;):D:eek:

    As you can see in Post #1 NONE of the scuffs affect use or are visible when fitted to a bike.

    I think the previous owner was a 'forcer' rather than a 'thinker' and the scuffs are from trying to force the seat on when it was obviously not aligned or with the front tab incorrectly located above rather than in the tank bracket stirrup.

    As confirmed recently by @Tal the seats have a spigot locating pin that locks into the stock mounting latch. This can be adjusted to engage correctly on each bike by screwing it in or out with a crescent wrench. There are a couple of flats on the base of the spigot to use the wrench. There is also a few mm of lateral adjustment available on the bike frame latch.
