Widowmaker Saddle for 2009 – 2017 H-D Touring Models


Hollister, CA – We’ve taken the concept of the solo design Wall saddle and merged it with our two-up Gambler model to come up with the Widowmaker. Featuring six inches of vertical back support in the rider’s area that is perfect for hot rod bikes while keeping a low profile without external backrest. Perfect when a less reclined posture is desired.
The Corbin saddle eliminates hot spots and increases your riding time… even with such a low profile. Passenger seating area is built to keep a slick look, but the use of our high-density Comfort Cell foam still provides comfort and support. Designed to work alone or in conjunction with the Harley-Davidson sissy bar.
Aviailable with the option of electric seat heater in the front for an added bit of luxury. Wiring easily into your stock HD fusebox, the Corbin seat heater is controlled via a conveniently located switch along the rider seating position on the left side. You just wire in the Corbin supplied pigtail and enjoy the warmth on those chilly morning rides. Passenger seating is not heated on this model.

The Iron Trader News Bagger makeover is FINALLY underway. What’s the project entail? It’s a 2004 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic that is long overdue for some upgrades. It’s still a capable motorcycle but cosmetically it’s a bit behind the times. To that end, we are using a selection of Performance Machine bolt on parts with their contrast cut styling. Brian Klock has sent us one of his new windshields & front fenders, AVON Tyres provided 2 new tires, Mustang Motorcycle Seats provided a terrific seat which may be changed based on the new gas tank, American Suspension has sent us their new bolt on front end kit to support the 26″ wheel that Sam Wakim from RideWright Wheels is sending us. We at Johnny Mac’s Chopper House will do all of the labor and paint work in house.

Who’s supporting this makeover? Glad you asked, so far we have been very fortunate to partner with: Performance Machine, Ride Wright Wheels, Klock Werks, Johnny Mac’s Chopper House, American Suspension, Avon Tires, Mustang Motorcycle Seats, and SuperTrapp.

Stay tuned for still images & VIDEO of this fun project. We hope to have a few special guest hosts off and on & promise to show in detail how each of the components from these terrific sponsors can EASILY be applied to your bagger!
