After Market Exhaust and Seat

Postby DBono » Thu Dec 08, 2016 4:14 pm

I recently sold my café racer, but before doing so pulled off the custom Corbin seat and brand new short open Motad exhaust with stainless headers and decatted X-pipe.

I also have second generation South Bay mufflers in very good condition.

I'm in San Francisco and would prefer to deal locally, if possible.

So, if you have any interest, please PM me.

FYI, I know there is a classified section on the website, but that's mostly all classic Commando stuff, so figured this note would be more relevant to this forum.

Thanks

For what it is worth, I met DBono at Sonoma Racetrack this year. He showed up on an immaculate Mark 3 Commando. I am sure from seeing the Mark 3 that he keeps all of his stuff in pristine condition

Thanks John. Yes, all are in pristine condition. The right side SB muffler has a mark where the chain hit the exhaust, but otherwise are perfect.

The seat is the same as in the picture in my signature block and you can see the larger version in my post, "Loving My Café Racer".

I will take some more pics over the weekend and post them.

I'd be interested in the seat. Can I assume the Cafe Racer and Sport use the same seat design?

PM me with a price please! :D

The custom Corbin seat is in excellent condition. It is the same width in front as where it meets the fuel tank, but much thicker padding and better shape. It was made with classic black leather, with "Corbin" in black thread.

I spent $600 and a Saturday at the Corbin factory while they made it from scratch. If interested, please PM me with an offer.

Here are two close-ups:

Do you think the seats on the Sport and the CR are identical? There are two angled bolts on my Sport seat - does yours attach the same way?

I don't know for sure if they are the same, but would think so.

Mine does attach with angle bolts. You can see the holes in the bottom of the seat.

Thank you, Dean. Maybe I'll get to swap the seat out by next April. :roll:

Bump.

Exhaust systems now listed in Classified section, but not getting any inquiries. I gather most all 961 owners have already upgraded their exhausts.

Too bad for me as I spent $3,000 on this stuff and was hoping to get some back.

Why don't you try the person who bought your bike ? They may want a performance exhaust now. You never did say why you sold the 961 .
