New CVO RG, need new seat...
« on: April 14, 2012, 09:42:19 PM »

Just bought a Maple RG that will be here by the end of the month after having the dealer install some Fat Cats and Super Tuner (hopefully...). I have always had a backrest so I am looking for a solo with a backrest that looks good/feels good. I am a big boy (6.3  280lbs) so it cant be "just pretty"... I currently have a Corbin covered with Ostrich/ Alligator on my ST. I am looking for exotic to enhance the look without getting too gaudy. It seems like I am between Le Pera and C and C custom seats. Looking for some help/advice. Thanks for letting in on this forum, very cool!!!

perlinal,
Since your post is requesting some technical assistance I moved it to the model specific board so you may get the answers you are looking for. If you want to start another thread in the New Member Introduction board and introduce yourself feel free to do so.

Well, I actually just logged on to start a thread on the same thing (new seat), so I will be following this thread. Put 430 miles in yesterday and my tailbone and back are killing me.

I just ordered a Danny Grey Air-hawk solo seat today (should be insanely comfortable). Working with the artist to make it a 1-off to match the Doberman. Got the idea from reading this forum and seeing how happy people were with the Danny Grey. I almost ordered the Le Pera until i read the posts. I will post some pics and reviews when I get it.

Please send me a message with the details I am looking to do the same for my skunk, I want a one off to match the bike too, not liking the look of the Mustang solo on the bike that I saw on a Blue/Black CVO......

 Went up to their factory today (Santa Ana,CA) and saw their work. Amazing! They had me sit on a Road Glide and build the seat to my body and riding position. They also are the source of the "Harley Custom Seat Program" as well as all Orange County Chopper bikes. I got the "Big Seat" solo with matching passenger pillion, backrest and sissy bar pad (removable). The artist is doing some drawings for me based on the bike and then we will come up with a design that will hopefully be amazing. Great experience so far... The person who helped me is Sherry Clark at 888-443-2669.she was awesome!

I just ordered the new Lepera Continental/Backrest seat for my Skunk. 
The seat is 17" wide for the rider and 16" for passenger.
I bought it for the wife when touring and long trips.
I always used Corbin's in the past.

Just picked up my 2012 SERGC (skunk) yesterday and have put about 50 miles on it so far. The stock seat looks good and is fairly comfortable, but I'm used to a backrest and really miss it. I love the look of the Corbin seats, but am worried about some reports of it being on the hard side. I'd love to see the Danny Gray seat - please post pics when you get it!

My Corbin came in yesterday, I like the comfort but it moved me forward and up and that I did not like. Will be putting some good miles on this weekend, but I don't think I will be able to love with the position of it, the position of the stock solo is perfect for me, but no backrest use with the stocker, and it's useless for long days in the saddle.

This is the artist drawing for the Danny Grey. Middle brown is Ostrich, Darker brown next to it is Bison and rest is distressed brown leather.
