You probably didn't figure the Wizard's would be working on anything new for the Commando did you? Well, we just love bikes... vintage bikes, new bikes, metric bikes... just about anything on two wheels. So it's really no big surprise to see innovative new items like our Smuggler trunk being tooled for the Commando. Especially when this bike still has such a strong fan base in the US (and for good reason).
Corbin's Smuggler design takes the lines of our popular Gunfighter saddle to keep a clean, fast look on your bike. However, on this model instead of a padded tail section, we've converted it into a locking storage trunk. This provides the most convenient storage available for your bike and it's secure too. Up front, the Corbin Smuggler features an extremely comfortable saddle tailored in genuine leather.
Inside we've found plenty of room for a couple bottles of water along with maps, keys, cell phones, spare gloves and other incidental items. Naturally it's fully lined on the inside to protect your cargo. Door is fully weather stripped and comes complete with lock to secure your goodies. Trunk is bolted directly to the Corbin front saddle so the system mounts together as a single piece... simple!
Notice how the Corbin trunk is specially sculpted to pick up the lines of the Norton tank and emulate them. This is not a generic storage pod mounted up with a comfy seat, it was specially designed to look correct and fit perfect on the Norton. Speaking of perfect looks, your Smuggler trunk comes to you prepainted in gloss black and ready to mount right out of the box (pin striping not included).
Up front, the saddle is ergonomically engineered to fit the shape of your body and provide contoured support. This gives more square inches of body contact which provides better weight distribution. Upholstered in genuine leather for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body and breaks in along with the foam shape for a custom fit to your posture. Corbin's exclusive Comfort Cell foam give you firm support for a long day's ride!
Installation is simple and uses a key lock built into the saddle for easy on and off. Once our unique bracket is installed on the chassis of your Norton, you simply remove the saddle with a twist of the key. Our unique bracket system eliminates the possibility of inadvertent loosening. Attaches to standard configuration Commando with no modifications. Fits with small Roadster tank from 1970 up.

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.
KEY LOCK INSTALLATION: This saddle model uses a new mounting system designed by Corbin to allow installation and removable with a simple key lock. Once the included brackets are installed, the saddle can be removed easily by just inserting and turning the key. Need a demo? Just click the button.
Installation: Corbin's bracket installs to stock locations on your bike and provides a stainless steel latch pin for the locking mechanism. Once the bracket is installed, just lower the seat onto the latch pin and push down until you hear TWO clicks. Placement of the rubber bumpers assure saddle will not move around on the bike.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
