Looking for Seat Deal

Seat Deals
Ok I have decided that I am going to get a seat. I would rather not spend $500 for a new one so if anyone knows where I can get a good deal on a seat let me know. I have been looking at mustang, saddleman, and corbins on ebay and craigslist.

After being here a short while I am sure someone will come through for me and help me out with this.

A mustang seat will set you back almost $400.. if it goes above $475, i would quit bidding. Corbin still makes seats for the VN750... a nother cheaper idea is to mod a Sportster seat to fit your bike.. very simple to do, makes passenger comfort a lot better, and not to mention looks a lot cooler.

For about 100 bucks he installs new foam, and will address problems you might have with the stock seat by building it to fit YOUR butt better. I have not heard of anyone complaining about the results. He reuses the stock cover, so when done the seat looks like the stock unit, but feels like a custom.
