Are you allowed to disclose what you paid out the door? I saw that they had some pricing on their website, but with the seat addon, it would be nice knowing what ballpark to expect.

Seth is very slow to respond to phone calls and never responded to my Facebook request,
The first time he called me was over six weeks from when I filled out his seat form.
That being said, when the production date rolled around, he called me and asked very good questions about what I wanted.
He was extremely polite and sincere in his quest to build a seat perfect for me.
I had mailed my seatpan the day before Warman, yet got my seat a month ago, so he must be getting lots of orders each day
While the seat is much better than stock, the gap between the nose and tank looks bad. I was very surprised in that other seats for cb11 don’t have a gap and I had sent 2 photos with my build sheet showing the non gap seat, saying this is what I want.
I ll probably come out ahead by having a local shop recover the seat and fill in the gap rather than paying shipping cost
To be fair, I should call Seth and if he would pay 1/2 the shipping and repair it and ship back the same day, I d think that was fair,
Stitching, foam density and workmanship were very, very good.
My seat looks just like Warman’s

Looks fast sitting still

The Russell seat I bought from another member is this shape and like you I find I
have to slide forward when I stop but that works just fine.

I found the gaps on my Corbin seats very good compared with the stock seats.

With shipping it was right at $450. I believe he charged me extra because it was a Corbin seat I sent him.

He answered the quote request the day after I sent it in. But it was almost three months from the day I mailed it to the day I got it back. But I still have the stock seat so it wasn’t all that bad for me.

The fit around the gas tank is my only complaint. But I’m not going to spend another $70 in shipping to try to get it fixed. I already have way too much money in that seat. All in all, I am pleased and would do it all over again.
