Iím a serious seller so thanks for that. I posted on the sale ad that it came with the bike when I bought it. How would I know the inseam and such. Iíve never been asked any of that for Corbin or Sargent seats. In the pictures I included the Russell serial number, I figured buyers can call and ask specifics.
The fuss made about Russell seats is a bit overblown. Russell can made adjustments, and for extreme cases those adjustments are significant. Most of us fit in the middle somewhere and get a seat made for people "in the middle".
The one major difference is the spring weight in the seat. They have two grades and if the seat was made for a big guy, a lightweight might find it a bit firm. It will still be the most comfortable seat he has ever sat on.
When I bought my '05 I was the third owner. The original buyer had a Russell made early in the life of the bike. That set had about 75k and two different butts on it when I got it. I put another 40k on it before having the seat fully rebuilt. It's still on the bike. It was only rebuilt because the original velour covering was simply worn out.
The seat was supremely comfortable and, believe me, I spent the hours on it to know. The previous owner toured extensively, two-up and the original owner was a different shape to both of us.
It's always helpful to know the height and weight of the person a Russell was built for, just to avoid extreme changes, but for most of us it's a moot point. A Russell at half-price is going to be a great buy, and you won't lose money if you have to re-sell it.
