I have recently found a Corbin seat for sale. $50

The seat needs recovering. See below. Can this be salvaged at a reasonable price? What do you suggest.

My thinking is to buy the seat, give it a few rides and see how I like the seat and if it feels right in the tush, to have it recovered. Corbin says 75% of a new seat is the new cover costs. This seems kind of high.

I wonder if others have had any success using a upholstery person on this type of situation.

Buy a new factory seat for $325.... Road Sofa for $550 or... have this recovered. These are my options so far.

Okay, Larry you opened yourself up for this one..... Why don't you have it covered in a "car tire".....LOL...

Seriously, a good upholstery shop should be able to cover that seat. You might want to have them check the foam while they have the cover off since what is there may be "well worn". A good shop can make it look and feel like new....
Are you jack knifing my thread into a car tire theme? Well.... there goes the neighborhood.

that is a crobin dual tourer. Some like it some do not.
I think giving a try is a good way to save some $$$ if ya like it.
Several places will recover it a lot less than corbin will.

I bought it, installed it and rode 50 miles on it today. I like the back support and the fit. Gonna have it repaired.

I ordered a Hartco seat cover today for my stock seat and I am going to send this over to Rich's Motorcycle Seats in Kingston WA for a complete new cover.

Saturday, I get my Corbin back and I get my Hartco cover on Tuesday. I am leaving on a 1800 mile ride on Wednesday.

Not sure how it will pan out but I have a few days of trying out the Corbin before I leave on my trip. So far, I have enjoyed the difference between the Corbin and the stock seat.
