    Honda GB500 dual saddle?

    Hello,

    I'm currently looking at buying a Honda GB500, and I'm very interested in the possibility of fitting a dual saddle. I'm aware that Corbin offers a dual saddle, but I was wondering if any of you would know about other seats that could be fitted on the bike?

    Also, passenger footpegs? Where could I get hold of these? And are these easy to fit?

    Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Soren

    Are you in the us or somewhere else? Certain models of the gb500/400 came with buddy seats and passenger pegs from Honda. If you are in the US this will mean a lot o searching eBay in other countries.

    It is easy to bolt on passenger pegs, but to really get them right it is going to take some trial and error with your passenger.

    Here is the GB400TT Mk2. The dual seat model. Look at how honda solved the passenger peg solution. The seat I don't think is a stick seat, it may be made by a company called WM?.



    this is the stock GB400 dual seat:


    you can try contacting David Silver Spares in the UK, as he gets stuff for bikes and doesn't always put it in the parts list. Don't be surprised if the stock seat is hella expensive.

    Brooklands sells this seat for the GB500/400 clubman:

    http://www.motobike.jp/product/3504

    I know nothing about this site. I am just better at google than you.

    By the way, the GB is huge in japan, an amazing following. Talk to Corey, maybe he has something in one of his japanese catalogs.
