Lovin' my CLC!
Need a stock seat for an '84 R65
I just picked up my 2nd R65 this past weekend, a 1984 with 108k miles on the clock, owned for the past 10 years by a German living in Virginia who took VERY good care of the bike. After riding it for the past few days, I love everything about it EXCEPT the seat. The previous owner installed a Corbin seat on the bike, which I have noticed has me sliding a little closer to the gas tank than I would like to sit, and also tends to make me place a little more weight on my wrists than I am used to. My prior Beemer, a 1981 R65, had a stock seat which fit me just fine and I liked the seating position a lot. I think I would like to switch back to a stock seat. I would like a stock seat, in good condition, at a reasonable price. I would certainly consider swapping my Corbin with someone who has a stock seat for a 1984 R65 in good condition as well. If anyone knows where I can find a stock seat in good condition, I sure would appreciate it! Thanks!! John J.
