Russell Day Long Custom Seat for '80 GL1100

Postby Wingsconsin » Thu Mar 28, 2013 9:25 am



This came off my son's new-to-him 1980 GL1100 Interstate
He found a Travelcade seat he liked bettter so this one is for sale...

The details:
If NEW this seat would cost $995.00
$600 Real LEATHER Seat
$280 backrest
$75 puch
$40 raincover

Seat has about 40,000 miles of use on it according to the previous owner who purchased it new
.. and is still nearly perfect with no rips,tears or blemishes.
It does show a few wrinkles like leather will get as it is used but almost none in the drivers section

Asking price --$375.00 plus shipping

Paypal Accepted
Contact Carl at (262) 366-5699 or email cmunkwitz@gmail.com


(circle on picture is not on the seat? )

I wish this would fit on my '78, it would be much easier than getting my corbin fixed! :)

Good luck with the sale.

these are a very different seat - even though the bikes look similar...

I wish it were not the case...looks like a great seat!

It is actually very comfortable. I have riden several hundred miles in it myself as I "test rode" his bike...

He wanted something different and found a Travelcade he thought looked better....I explained how it feels is more iimportant than how it looks..but he is 19 and will have to learn on his own ..the Travelcade is a nice seat too...but this is a Russell Day Long saddle...

Anyone interested please ...I will entertain any offer that is reasonable.... ;)

On both my '75 and '79 Wings, I am using OEM 1100 seats. They are fitting quite well. The seat in the photo looks to have a plastic tongue that will fit the 1200s.
