2000 Se Anniversary seat

Post by LaclaMoe »



Just bought a nearly mint low miles(20k)
except seat is a corbin. I want to find an original. Were they the same from 98? Just black or color matched? Any badges etc for this specific bike?
Also, were all 2000 Se models Anniversary? I would think so but just asking.

Are you sure you want to do that? I have that exact same seat on my 1500 (although mine is all black), and it is by far the most comfortable seat I have ever ridden on. I have spent 20+ hours at a time on it, and was tired, but not sore.

Yes have one on my nomad. But I’d need an original also. Insurance at 25yrs in BC Canada plummet with collector plates

No badging. Not sure exact color, Honda engineers really enjoyed so much tweaking color names at this time. Thinking it could maybe have been black or dark shade of grey. Probably wouldn't be too difficult figure out. :)

Corbin always intriguing. Nice seats.

Did a quick seaarch and can't tell. Didn't see any good photos of that color

Well glad it’s not a simple answer. Even the paint code isn’t listed for the dark green on a quick search. I’ll check when I’m back at the bike. Thanks

I'm pretty sure all the stock1998, 1999, 2000 seats are black and dark gray.

It also depends on if it was an original Canadian bike. They had a different seat emblem, similar to the keys.

Glad its not a beaver lol. Has a big key like that just not sure what emblem was on it. Not near the bike for a few days yet. My buddy has a 2000 and has just told me his seat was black and grey. But now he’s away too.

A pic shows color codes for GL1500SEY
are G-167P and G167G
I couldn’t find 2nd color listed on the net.
Not needed yet. What a relief. There are no scuff marks on the bags. It’s just reflections. Lol

Does have the Canadian key.

Someone posted a pic of the Canadian seat with the maple leaf around the gold wing emblem, but I can't find it and Google is not doing any better.
They are pretty much unobtainium by now, but if you want the original, that would be it.

That to all for the info. I’ve got a lead on original owner. I’m 3rd. Probably in his barn.
From all my research i think I’ll really like this bike. Not as fast as a red one but harder for the Mounties to notice too. 👮‍♀️🖐

Oh, that's a bit different than the pic I remember. I wonder if they changed the emblem sometime during production. I'll have to file that pic, since I can't find the one I was thinking of. I know it was posted here in some seat topic, but search is letting me down.

Probably too late, but please consider selling me your Corbin when you find an original. I'd love to own one.

Messaged. It also reminded me how comfy this bike is. I never looked twice at a wing. Fat and plastic to me, I preferred V twin or V four.
But reverse at my size and age is a must. Rsv had to go and she wasn’t comfy on my Nomad. She really likes this bike and i think it’s the perfect bike for us.
I’m converted. They’re absolutely fabulous.
Don’t try to compare or upsell me to next gen. Let me enjoy this one. Happy trails.

I will agree with you about so called "up grade" to later model. I had a 92 for several years and had no plans to get newer. Well, one day while welding in my shop the whole place turned into a furnace when so rags caught fire!! MU bike was in there also and got toasted big time. Did not see many 1500s on line at the time and EVERY one was raving about how good the 1800s rode. They must have had some real rough bikes to come off of. Right from the start I did not like the ride. The rest of the bike is great, nicer seat, radio, handlebar controls and mileage, oh and power like a Atlas booster rocket!!! No wonder so many owners complain about short rear tire life! WOW! You can burn rubber any time! But rides like a 1950 International pickup truck!! Front forks are stiff and rear is almost as bad as front. I found another 99 1500 finally with only 26000 on the clock and latched on to it. Sold the 1800 and now am a happy camper. Unfortunately my Wife has developed some back problems and finds it painful to ride on the bike. She still lets me go cruising around if I want to. I also found a set of 416 air shocks and it rides sooo smooth now!! Seat is still tolerable as my butt must be getting tougher in my old age!

I could see an upgrade some day possibly. All the plus features mentioned and you fixed the ride with shock upgrade. I would darkside it first tire change(another plus). If you get the tire pressure worked out on a good tire. So far she likes this but we might try an 18. At 70 i have to ride what’s best for me, the clock ticks.
I miss the harleys giving my Nomad and Rsv a wave, then realizing its Jap scrap and quickly pulling hand back. Lol. Doesn’t happen on the Wing, they know by site and ignore it. And that’s ok too. Lol (Not all, generalization)
Great bike.
