Seats Seats Seats. Which years, which seats?

Hello,

Anybody have any idea of Seat fitment throughout the years of the shadow starting in 1985? I have an 86' Shadow VT1100c. My seats are a bit ratty and certainly could use some updating. I really like the look of the 1 piece seats on some of the later models. Any idea if some of the later model Seats would fit on this bike? Or would I be better off trying to find a good upholstery guy?

Thanks,
Ian

I have heard nothing but good things. They can rebuild/recover your stock seat for less than the cost of a Corbin/Sargaent/Mustang seat.

Anybody have a stock passenger seat from a 85-86 vt1100c? The seat that is on mine currently is not from my bike and doesn't mount properly.

I had www.meancitycycles.com redo my seats, and soon after I got them back, the cover vinyl started cracking (from old age, I guess) so I bought some SaddleMan seat covers. Now not only are they comfortable for less than $200, they also LOOK good for less than $100 more. I would bet that if you purchased seat covers first then shipped the whole kit-n-kaboodle to MeanCity, they would redo the seat foam and recover with the new saddlemans for less than half of what a new after-market seat would cost.

I think I'm def gonna get some seat covers.. but first I have to find a rear passenger seat for the bike. What I really want is a one piece front and rear, but I can't find anybody that makes them.
