Classic Solo & Pillion for Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe
Click or Tap to Activate Item
A special saddle configuration designed specifically for the Softail Deluxe! Up front, we've taken our Classic Solo saddle and integrated the H-D chrome grab rail that comes as a part of the Deluxe package. Corbin's Classic Solo is also available as a "Close" model for riders that want a shorter reach to the bars and enhanced ground reach. For your passenger we created a generous pillion seat with integrated "King & Queen" style backrest. A very nostalgic and appealing design that visually works well with the bike while providing excellent comfort for two.
Corbin's Classic solo saddle provides the use of our removable rider's backrest for over 12 inches of vertical back support. Our sculpted seating position gives maximized body contact and provides true touring comfort with a bucket that gives plenty of lower back support. Our neutralized seat platform offers an easier reach to the ground and a more ergonomic position on the bike. For the Softail Deluxe, we've designed it specially to install with your stock Grab Rail with a genuine leather skirt on the side for a very clean look.
Corbin's removable rider backrest is simple to install and adjusts easily to your riding posture. Slide the backrest shaft into the internal hardware of the Classic Solo and lock it in place with a single bolt. You can then set the backrest position to your preferred setting and lock it in place with the easily accessible adjustment screw. Choose from a variety of backrest styles to suit your taste although we recommend the #02-S Ovalbac for a good combination of looks and support. A range of finishing plate options are available for the rear of the backrest to further customize the look.
For maximized passenger comfort, we offer a generous pillion seat with integrated backrest. We've designed this specially to work with your stock luggage rack and keep a very cool look on your bike. Wide, sculpted seating position gives excellent body support with a wide contact patch. This will eliminate hot spots and increase your passenger's riding range. Installs with or without the rider's backrest in the solo seat and includes painted ABS finishing plate on the rear.
Speaking of the rear finishing plate... notice how the triple rib design of the backing plate matches the three bars of the luggage rack for a totally integrated look. In these photos, we've had our finishing plate custom painted to match the bike, but the standard finishing plate comes in a nice leather pattern ABS. If you would like your saddle made with a smooth plate suitable for painting, please specify on the order form. Passenger pillion seat is built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell foam for firm support that lasts despite the slim lines. Bolts up easily with all brackets included with the saddle.
For ultra-cool solo looks, you can run the Corbin Classic Solo Saddle by itself without a pillion seat. This allows you to show off that slick rear fender and still provides for use of the Corbin backrest if desired. Notice again how the saddle and cover are designed to work with the stock grab rail. When running the bike in solo configuration, we've found it looks a lot cleaner to use a couple of Chrome Acorn nuts as shown here (not included) in place of the large thumbscrews.
Another slick option for your saddle setup is the variety of finishing plates offered for the rear of the Ovalbac series backrests. Along with our standard leather look ABS models, we offer a carbon-fiber look or even primer if you'd like to have one custom painted. For just a little extra, we can supply a finishing plate pre-painted gloss black or a chromed steel model like the one shown here. This looks really nice with the tasty chrome bits that come stock on the Deluxe!
Choose from a range of leather styles and colors for a custom touch on your new seat. Leather will provide a perch that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Be sure to care for your leather saddle with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. With proper care, your seat will age gracefully developing a unique character and will be your riding buddy for years. Optional chrome studs provide an added nostalgic touch to this already beautiful saddle. (included at no charge, just specify).
Just a reminder, this saddle is specially designed for the Harley-Davidson Deluxe model that became available in 2005. It will NOT work on other Softail models unless you purchase the grab rail and luggage rack from your Harley Dealer (rear fender may also be required). Likewise, we have a range of saddle options for your Deluxe model if you wish to remove the grab rail and rear luggage rack. For a complete listing of our products for Softail models, click HERE.
We've designed our solo saddle and passenger pillion to work in conjunction with your stock components if you choose. Corbin's Classic Solo retains use of the optional rider's backrest regardless of whether you use the stock rear seat or Corbin rear seat. Installation of both components is accomplished with all brackets required. Once the brackets are installed on the motorcycle, the solo seat will install and remove with our integrated key lock for simplicity.
One more word about backrests: If you opt for the model #02-S backrest, we have a new back plate option available for you... a Glovebox! This nifty piece is installed in place of your Ovalbac finishing plate and adds some lockable storage for your essential riding gear. We've designed this one especially to hold a couple of bottles of water with room left for gloves, maps, cell phones and sunglasses. Just about any small incidental item you can think of. Please note, however, that due to the height of the Softail rear fender, the glovebox does not work with the stock or Corbin pillion installed.
UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.
FIBERTECH™ BASEPAN: A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body. Click on the button at left to learn more...
COMFORT CELL® FOAM: The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort! For the complete story just click the button.
ERGONOMIC SHAPING: A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle's foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
PATENTED MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY: Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about, just click the button for More Info
GENUINE LEATHER: We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste. For more information about leather seating just click away.
CORBIN BACKREST SYSTEM: The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin's backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider's profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option!

Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
