Corbin Bagger Conversion – Saddle Up
Corbin may be best known for its motorcycle seats, but the company has also been busy designing and producing body components. Whether you want to dress up your ride or convert your stock bike into something new, Corbin has a wide variety of products to customize your motorcycle. In fact, the once stock ’04 Road King before you was converted using mostly Corbin components in a single weekend without modifying the stock chassis.
Compared to some of Corbin’s setups in the past, Lead Designer Mike Corbin, and R&D; crew, Vince Zavala and Freddy Amezcua, wanted cleaner components when it came to the design of the bike. “We worked with the wind to get the flow just right,” Mike said. Starting with the backend, the crew wanted to cover the frame members in the rear, develop a taller rear fender, and design saddlebags around it. They also wanted to sell the rear section as a kit with the reasoning that one part needs the other for the best look. Corbin developed its Fleetliner Saddlebag Setup (MSRP $2,699 primer), which includes the side covers, rear fender, license plate frame/taillight, and saddlebags. The Fleetliner and all the Corbin components on this bagger, are available pre-painted to match with factory colors or can be ordered in primer for custom paintwork.
In addition to the Fleetliner, Corbin’s other newest incarnation is the Front Fender (MSRP $299 primer), and for this conversion, the company also added a Chin Spoiler and Grille (MSRP $399 primer). Corbin’s latest fairing style is the Fleetliner (MSRP $1,199 primer), which offers wind protection and features subtle details like the center-rib and chrome trim. All the Corbin components are designed to fit ’97 to present H-D FLH models, and work with rear tire sizes up to 180mm with the tire centered, not offset.
