What’s old is new again… Bobbers are back!
This original chopped motorcycle style was popular back in the `40s and `50s when “chopped” meant exactly that… Fenders were removed or chopped up to give a leaner, meaner look like the `47 Indian you see above. The term actually had nothing to do with raking the front end and referred instead to the minimalist approach of these early customizers.
Corbin’s created a seat design that fits perfectly with the Bobber style. The vintage “saddle” shape designed to be mounted on a hinge and spring system is reminiscent of those found on the early Harley-Davidsons and Indian rigid frames. As you can tell in the photos, our seat design fits in perfectly with the Bobber culture. The similarities end at the visual appeal…
Built up on a Fibertech basepan to provide a rigid foundation for the carefully designed foam shape. Our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, supportive ride for miles of support. Naturally, the seat shaping has been ergonomically shaped to provide more square inches of body contact. This gives proper weight distribution and eliminates hot spots. Although this seat model appears vintage, the design takes full advantage of Corbin’s four decades of seat building experience.
Genuine leather seating is included in your choice of colors and styles. Leather makes a great seating material due to its durability and its ability to breathe with your body. Leather will also break in with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Coordinated vinyl side panels complete the look and keep your saddle shape tight. Be sure to care for your leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream.
