Hi, I'd be interested in the Corbin if you'd like to sell outright. I'm recovering the stocker right now to install on my wife's bike.

Michael - thanks - but no. I sold it and the tank, and bought the newer tank and dinner in NYC.

Actually, the story is somewhat amusing... We were going to meet the buyer in NYC at a bar. It was more convenient than his pad, I guess. So, my wife, a friend, and I each carried a piece (including the home-made rack shown) through the subway system. Never having met the buyer, I actually wondered how he would recognize us...

cheers - chp

Hey Norton73 -
What do you think of the recovering job? PITA, or easy? or TBD?

Thanks - chp

TBD, but that's the solo I'm recovering, the dual seat is still in the attic.

Michael, no I don't have a solution for the broken lens thing. But, I will put some attention on it. I think you're right - a screen would probably be the best. I also like your soft luggage. I've got some aluminum boxes and the left side mount has cracked for the second time. The aluminum is more secure against theft, but I like the looks of yours better.

Rich,

I just love those Pebbly 100PD's.

Barb,
I swapped the Red Single Seat with Alistair and now I have the Corbin. It would not fit on eitherhis 100PD or my 100PD, the rear hand rail - lock mechanism fouls on the seat. I will modify it slightly and It will be great.

Trvla,

An essential accessory for a bike such as this. I will also keep going.

MCJ

Mick, check out the pictures on my website. I have a shot of a lovely GS shop in Toowoomba there. I wonder if the '95 classics have a little different rack than the older PD's. That's just odd or maybe it's just OZ. Barb
