Seat Rear Mount

Postby Breiber » Mon Jun 20, 2016 10:21 pm



Help. Does anyone have an old seat that is garbage? I finally finished my restoration. I was putting the seat back on and preparing to go for a ride when I sadly realized that I had forgotten to take the mounts off my old seat and move them over to my road sofa. The old seat is long gone now. I'm an idiot.

Thanks for any leads,

Brian

Nice Job!

I'm in Va. ..... a long way from BC .... but I had forgotten that the OEM brackets are slotted and one side slides .... but the other side has three positions so that the seat is adjustable for / aft with a pull on a spring loaded collar.

I was gonna take a look for that oem seat I removed in the late '90s and offer to .... but then my Corbin is not adjustable, just has the single position like yours now. Since my legs are "my legs" and my arms are "my arms" still .... I've never missed the adjustment. You maybe won't either?

If I think to do it tomorrow, I'll go take a picture if it's out there.

Thanks for the offer. I'm happy with the position and if I want adjustment I can slot it with a die grinder.

Thanks again.
