Like I said when I reviewed the Mustang Wide Vintage, I'm just really disappointed with the selection of seats available for my Vulcan. I owned a Sportster before, and I bought a Le Pera seat for it that was absolutely perfect. I'd be so happy if Le Pera made seats for metric cruisers, but alas, all I have to choose from is Corbin, Mustang, and Saddlemen. On to the review . . . I like the look of the Fastback much better than the Wide Vintage. The Wide Vintage cupped my arse a little better, but the Fastback is still very comfortable. I like the overall shape of the seat. The tail section does seem comfortable enough for a passenger, but it slopes to the rear so much that your passenger will demand a backrest. I've paired mine with the Cobra mini backrest, which I will review separately. My big gripe with this seat is the type of leather used. It has a big, chunky grain to it that I find completely unappealing. I could have gone with Corbin's gunfighter seat, but (1) it's $100 more and (2) I couldn't find evidence that it would be adequately padded for a passenger. Eventually I'd like to have this seat reupholstered, but there are so many other things on my wishlist . . . it'll have to wait.

Sellers Comment: Like I say in my review, this is a real comfy seat. It's just not quite my style, and I'm finally ready to shell out for a Corbin. It has less than 200 butt-miles on it, and I have the original box and papers. I sold a Mustang Wide Vintage on E-Bay and got back what I paid, and I'm sure I could do the same with this seat, but I'll take a $40 hit if one of you CC faithful would like to buy it. In the tradition of CC, I'll even eat the shipping costs. Ride on!
