Need help for seat upholstering
Written by gibinmich on 1/19/2012 at 06:53 pm

I was looking through some old notes and found a place in Palm City Fla. that
does seats. I think thats in your neck of the woods? I believe its called
Spencers at greatdaytoride.com....My PC came with a Corbin and the new stock
seats. I liked both but liked the Corbin a little more so I sold the stock seats
to a member last year. Even though the Corbin is very firm it is comfortable.
Its a little lower and more than anything I love the looks. The rider seat is
more spacious than the stocker and the basket weave material is cooler too. I
never use it any more so I put my old sheepskin out to pasture.

a problem with the Corbins.
