fergy I was about to suggest that someone here might have one considering all the mustang and corbin seats that have been put on over the years, but I think you might be pleasantly surprised at how well the airhawk does, from all the rave reviews I've heard here and on VROC (Vulcan Riders & Owners Club).

sheepdog I might still consider redoing a seat, but after reading all the rave reviews, I decided not to try and reinvent the wheel (the seat?) and just bought an airhawk pad. thanks for the tips

Crobins365 sheepdog, I have a seat that would probably fit your needs. I should go give it another look and take a few pics - shoot me a pm with your email and I can send photos in a couple of hours.

sheepdog and I will love to redo the seat and get rid of the excess rain resevoirs (aka buttons). Big PITA for people who ride in wet weather/keep their bike outside

slimvulcanrider it was just a thought... I have an extra seat laying around, but i want a prety penny for it since it is in brand new condition.

sheepdog I'd rather have a junk seat with a good pan. My fiberglass skills are nonexistant

slimvulcanrider So are you looking for a junk seat with a good pan? Or are you looking for ideas on how to mod or make a seat? How good are your fiberglass skills? For $50 of materials you could make your own fiberglass seat pan, and for $30 more you can pad it and cover it as well. Check out my Seat build thread in my sig line, also read http://www.diymotorcycleseat.com for more information. Search the forum for seat shave, a lot of guys have modded their own seats by shaving the seat and either adding a gel pad, or other foam, and used the stock cover. Most have been able to do this in an afternoon. One word of advice if you decide to tackle this on your own... get an electric carving knife to shave the foam with.. it saves a lot of time and anguish... and is a lot more precise than trying to use an exacto knife.

flitecontrol You could buy a used one on ebay and send it to this guy. He's done seats for several members and I don't recall any complaints about comfort or cost. http://greatdaytoride.com/Home_Page.php

denny6006 I did my own in an afternoon it really requires more patience than skill and a little common sense.

Seat pan?

I was wanting a guy in town to build me a new seat (different foam, no buttons that hold rainwater). Instead of using my seat and being without a bike while he makes it, I thought about just getting a seat pan (or ragged out seat that could be gutted). Any ideas? All the ones I see are more expensive replacement seats (oem). No need for it to be all shiny and rip free if I plan on gutting it.
