MIKE CORBIN


Hall of Fame Inductee - Pre 2001 (2000)

 

Mike Corbin designed and built his first customized seat for a Norton Atlas in 1968 - a bike he customized for himself.  His friends were soon asking him to build seats for them, too.  Soon, Corbin's talents were noticed by a Harley-Davidson dealer who ordered five of the seats - all of which he sold in the first weekend.  For a few years, Mike attempted to make seats as a hobby on the side, while still running an electrical subcontracting business.  It wasn't long before Mike decided to move into seat-making full time.  From those humble beginnings, Corbin Saddles has become an industrial leader with a diverse range of products from riding boots to saddlebags.


Most people are familiar with Corbin motorcycles seats - they are made for virtually every brand of motorcycle in the country - however, Mike Corbin is also recognized for his advances in safety, apparel, furnishings and automobiles.
