Corbin’s Classic Solo Saddle & Passenger Pillions give your VTX Neo a nostalgic look and excellent comfort. Provides the use of our removable backrest for 16 inches of vertical back support in the rider’s position. Our sculpted seating position gives maximized body contact and provides true touring comfort with a bucket that gives plenty of body support. Our neutralized seat platform offers an easier reach to the ground and a more ergonomic position on the bike.
For total touring support, we offer several styles of removable backrest that work in the Classic Solo. The Ovalbac® model backrest shown here is our model #02-S and provides the best blend of good looks and sculpted support. Ovalbac® models provide good support without trapping heat against your body… they also make a great hand hold while moving your bike around the garage. Simple to install, just slide the backrest shaft into the saddle and secure with the included setscrew. Backrest angle is adjustable to provide a tailored fit to your posture and adjustment is done without removing the backrest from the seat.
Corbin’s rear seat easily bolts up along with the Corbin solo and keeps a sleek, vintage look with excellent capabilities for passengers. We build this model to look sly, but use our high density Comfort Cell® foam for a firm supportive ride. Our pillion is ergonomically engineered for better weight dispersion and support. Naturally it is built to match your Classic Solo for a totally integrated look.
Both saddles and backrest are richly tailored with genuine leather seating panels and built with Corbin’s Comfort Cell® foam. Our exclusive foam material is almost twice as firm as the stock foam to give you support that lasts and doesn’t compress down over time. This “Closed Cell” foam will feel firm at first, but over the miles you will notice it doesn’t compress down like the stock foam and continues to provide resilience for the long haul. Additionally, it will break in over time to provide a personalized fit to your posture.
Choose from a wide range of leather and decorating options (all included) for your new seat. Leather will provide a nice perch that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit. For an added bit of a nostalgic touch, specify Chrome Studs on your order like the model shown here (also at no additional charge). Corbin’s backrest system works with or without a pillion saddle in place. Corbin pillion seats work with your VTX sissy bar if equipped.
If you prefer a totally solo look, you can run the Corbin Classic Solo seat without a passenger pillion. This looks very nice on the VTX models showing off that flashy Tail Dragger style fender. Corbin’s backrest is supported internally, so there are no unsightly brackets to clutter up the clean look of your bike. To keep things looking clean, chrome button head screws (not included) into the hole in your fender is a simple solution. Since the saddles install easily, you can simply convert your bike from this solo look to dual with just a few screws and a few minutes of your time.
If you opt for one of the Ovalbac® series backrests as shown here (model #02-S), you can further customize the look of you bike with rear finishing plate options. Made of ABS, our standard model has a leather look to it, but you can also choose a Carbon-Fiber look, Aluminum look or primer if you want to custom paint one. For just a little extra, we can provide a finishing plate prepainted to coordinate with your stock Honda paint job or a new Chromed steel model as shown. Please note, chrome back plates are only available for the model #02-S.
Simple to install, passenger pillion mounts directly to the Corbin Classic Solo seat with all hardware included. The solo uses two brackets similar to your stock seat to mount directly to the frame locations originally used. You will reuse the stock bolts for this. To clean things up a bit, we offer a chromed billet thumbscrew in the proper thread (6mm) to fit your rear fender as shown. This looks very clean and can be installed or removed without tools. These thumbscrews can be used in a variety of applications wherever you want a dressier finish.
Be sure to care for your leather saddle with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. With proper care, your seat will age gracefully developing a unique character and will be your riding buddy for years. Leather conditioner will help it to remain water resistant and supple over time. Beware not to use any cleaners or conditioners that are petroleum based or contain kerosene as this may damage the leather cover over time!
