WTB: Corbin Gentry Long Solo Seat

Postby raleypc » Fri Aug 02, 2019 6:50 pm

I am looking for the Corbin Gentry reproduction of the long solo seat used on '65 and later XLCH's. They were sold through V-Twin under the numbers 47-0827 or 47-0826. They appear to be no longer available. Anyone have one sitting on the shelf that they would consider parting with?

You probably all ready seen this one but: pn# 47-0110

http://www.vtwinmfg.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... Id=3314899

It's the same length, 16"

It's an inch wider, 14' as opposed to 13"

It's an additional 1/2" thick as well.

Say's genuine leather.

Good luck with your quest.

Now that VTwin one looks more like the old C Gentry remake. They closed awhile ago. This import one has the smaller rivets and strip added. Also says many not be as pictured. :? There is a similar looking one out there with large pop rivets, and no strip. It's leather and low priced but not as correct looking as this. Erik

Thanks I plan to bid on that one. I actually have another original that I had recovered by Heathers Leathers. Great work but the the padding ended up too thin...looks more like a race saddle.

I was considering that one but looks a bit boxy in the picture. I would like to see one in the flesh.

I didn't realize Corbin Gentry went out of business. They made a quality product. I have one of their short Sportster solo seats. Thanks!
