Bench seat on C5 please
« on: March 08, 2013, 03:41:37 AM »
We have a customer who ordered a new C5 today who must have a non-stepped bench seat. Ok, minimum stepped is ok. The Corbin has too much of a step, the Enfeild gear English seat is out of stock forever. There is one offered on eBay but the store owner can only say it might fit. Who has a sure fire fitting seat? Thanks in advance.

I'm sure the guys in the shop can fab up some brackets.   There's also the seat for the more retro looking Bonnie that's totally flat but a little taller.

Have not found one comfortable seat for my G5. One of the main reasons I'm probably selling.

On this page, the one listed as 'dual seat' which has the white piping is very comfy, but it does take a little while to wear in. It still looks great, too. Probably pricey coming from the UK though.

And although I haven't tried it, you could try this seat, as fitted to late model Interceptors. It's probably the closest to meeting your description. But it won't have the mounting brackets appropriate for a C5. I'm not completely certain, but you might be able to get away with using the mounting brackets Hitchcocks supply with that last link I posted, but you'd probably have to phone or E-Mail Hitchcocks about brackets to fit the C5/Classic EFI. Or you could make them, as they'd be absolutely simple to do.

Actually, I'd really love to see this seat on a C5... I might have to order one myself.

You should be able to fit almost any RE bench seat to a C5 with minor mods. Might be worth a call to Hitchcocks or an email to Bulletwala. I was able to mount a Triumph seat but did need to use the base from a stock C5 pillion seat.
