Came home from a swap meet today with this Corbin seat. Guy thought it was for a Norton. Anyone recognize it? I like the lines and couldn't pass it up for the price.

Based on the two slots in the bottom, which should have steel legs coming out of them, it's for a Commando. The legs attach at the same location as the OEM seat, which is the top shock mount.

My experience with the waffle pattern vinyl used on Corbin seats is it dries out and cracks with age. The pattern makes the cracks hard to see so buyer beware is always the advice for used Corbins.

If it fits the frame of your Triumph, then it's just a matter of locating and attaching mounting brackets. Since you have to remove the cover to reupholster it anyway, attaching new brackets should be relatively simple.

I like that seat on a Commando. Gives it a clean look.

regards,
Rob

Thanks for the info, Bob. It will just sit in my shop for now:) At the back, there are two embedded nuts to fasten to the frame, I assume.
