WTB: Junk front seat to practice building seats.

I just got my first FJR and I'm looking to buy the cheapest front seat so I can try my hand at building a custom seat. All I need is the plastic underside. My friend who has an upholstery business wanted to team up on the project.

The Corbin that came with my bike is too firm and rather than trashing a Corbin someone might appreciate I'd like to try on a junk seat and if successful I can re-sell the Corbin.

Is this the real Mountain-Mike? Long time, bro!
I have a junk front seat, but there's a wee bit of a problem getting it to you at the moment. It was butchered a bit by the PO on the bottom to lower it, but otherwise, stock.

Yes Sir its me, and I think I can find photos of us at ONSTOC to prove it. Totaled my ST1100 after 125,000 miles in a trip to Austin. Just acquired a '07 FJR and I'm in the process of farkling it with all my old accessories to get it cross country ready. I'm in no hurry for the part as it would likely be a winter time learning project.

FYI, you can unstaple the cover and the foam underneath is one piece, lightly glued to the pan. You'll more than likely be able to remove it intact, do your mod.... then you can restore the original if need be... not that hard.
Meanwhile, my junk pan I can send if we can get the border open... international shipping a wee bit of pain/backlogs and not cheap.
Good to hear from you, hope all is well with you and your lovely. Yes, some good memories of past events

Thanks for the tip. I'll happily wait for your junk pan. Till then I'm experimenting with gel seat covers as a temporary solution. I have plenty of other farkling to do as well.
