    Can someone who owns a 2010 softail take their seat off and take a photo of this section of the frame. Apparently there should be two holes in the frame unused. Trying to fit a 2010 Corbin seat to a 2007 model. Would be very grateful if someone could assist HD Forums Australia - P2190105_2.JPG

     chriso, you are an absolute legend. I wonder why they put two holes there for? and I presume the 2010 model is the same as the 2008.

    just waiting on the rear bracket to come from the USA. The guy from Corbin said they changed the seat base when they went from 07 to 10

    but Im hoping to use the rear bracket from the 07 and the front bracket from the 2010.will update on how I go

     Chriso good news. I drilled and tapped the holes and mounted the front bracket.I thought I was drilling through a couple of mm thick tube and was surprised to find that it was solid metal. I had to modify the rear 07 model brackets slightly but got there in the end. it fits nice and securely without any movement. So a happy ending, thanks again for taking the time to send me those photos. Just like to say that Corbin USA were an absolute delight to deal with and bent over backwards to assist. just looking for a second hand backrest and I'll be done

    Yeah good to hear Tom, always satisfaction when you modify stuff to suit.
    Agree with you on Corban mate, quality product and excellent to deal with.

    Ya mate there looks a bit disinterested though

    Good stuff, that's why I keep coming back here, there are some bloody good lads that are willing to help others out for no other reason than they need a hand.

    Good stuff tom. Although second hand backrests for corbin seats don't come up often as people usually sell them with the seat. 

    Have you seen the cost of buying the rider backrest new from corbin?! There's another company that sell back rests to work with corbin seats about half the cost. You'll find them easy enough with Google

    Quite a few backrests on ebay - not genuine Corbin but will fit. About $110 landed in Australia
