Corbin Dual Tour seat w/ Backrest - $550

Corbin seat, came with my Kawasaki 2005 Vulcan VN750 - Mint, the bike only has 9k on it and he said he had *just* bought the seat to help his back but no dice, he had to stop riding altogether...
"www.corbin.com/kawasaki/8696vulcan.shtml" - Sans stitching
I'm in michigan, unsure of shipping, but I'm not padding the cost.
New, before shipping, with backrest is $752
Selling for $550

Corbin Dual Tour

It is a nice looking and for me a comfortable seat. Of course you want to recover as much of the cost as possible. Anyone else wants to buy it for as little as possible. So let's see where this goes. My guess is you will have to give a little, but with luck you will find a buyer.

Good luck

Any seat over $350 and the buyer is throwing money away. Corbins aren't exactly comfortable. A Mustang or even Saddleman will be better. I've had all 3!

Im not an unreasonable man...
Consider this though, the back rest is $259 alone.
I apologize for incurring such rage, however, i would ask you to consider me a person and not a screen name... And most certainly not a scumbag scheister.
Please afford me the courtesy you would extend a peer.
McNubey, thank you.
I am willing to consider trade, I'm selling this to buy a lowering kit.

I actually think the Corbin seat is far more comfortable than a Mustang or Saddleman.
Corbin's are not cheap. Yes, the backrest is around $250 alone, but any seat, once you put it on the bike, is considered used. As you seem to have said the bike came with the seat, you personally didn't buy it for the $752.00.

I sold my "used" Corbin for $250....with backrest. If it is still "new" ...meaning no ones sat on it very long. $300-$350 be a fairer price.IMHO.

Photos would help.

There is nothing wrong with you pricing it any way you want. We are all a bunch of hagglers here though. I understand it is a starting price,so look around on ebay and see what they have actually been selling for there and you will get an Idea of what you are likely to get for it.

Give the man a break, he priced it high. So what? I price everything high so have a lot of wiggle room when selling publicly. All anyone has done so far is whine about the price. Make him an offer he might surprise you

He can ask whatever he wants for it, but as he's doing on this Forum, any of us can state their opinion over it if they want.
First and only post, no photo of the seat, no real proof it's "brand new" other the word of the guy that sold him the bike....kinda expect anyone here to have a few questions.
He of course has the right not to listen to our opinions....but if several folks think the price is a bit high they get to say that without being called whiners...

The Corbin Seat

A couple years ago I sold a Corbin Seat with the back rest on E Bay. It was a couple years old, but looked new. It hadn't been setting in the sun and fading. I didn't sell it as new, just well taken care of.
I got $500 for it. I was really happy with that. I even got positive feed back. I'm not sure what this one is worth but time will tell. A person has to start high, who knows he might get it.
