Hi,

Looking for a Corbin Gunfighter Lady Seat with backrest for my 97 Blackbird. Anyone have one they would like to sell? Thanks.

Fwiw, I remember reading a post last year that Corbin still makes the GF/LGF seat for the BB. The cost of new is not much more than what used seats go for. I think Corbin gets you on the backrest portion but there are plenty of knock offs on eBay for that. I got lucky and found a used Corbin backrest that matched my used Corbin seat. So you can either be patient and remain vigilant to spot one for sale on forums and hope you get to it first or get a new seat from manufacturer.

Billy, you sent me the PM. I think you meant to send it to OP. I already have a gunfight/lady GF with backrest as well as a Smuggler seat.

I just bought a used one recently and need to get out and test with the wife... one of these damn days. If she's not happy with it I'll try to remember to post here and let you know.

i've sampled 2. the one on my current bike (also on used on my past 2) was a custom from the factory. we rode in and worked with the shaper to get it just how we wanted.

the next one came on a bike i bought about a month ago and i assume was "off the shelf" and appeared to have a slightly different shape and softer foam than i remember my original off the shelf saddle that was the reason i went custom. this 2nd saddle was just fine, right off the shelf.

i'd say these are a very worthwhile mod if you plan on any distance and to keep the bike for longer than a few months. i'm not so hot on the backrest, however. in the case of my current wife, she finds it pushes her too close to me and doesn't offer enough space to slide back a bit. my bikes have had a large givi on their rear only rack. i'd pass on the backrest.
