Just bought a 2001 Triumph T'Bird to make into a cafe racer. I have Clubman's and rearsets and I've spruced up the horsepower. Can anyone suggest a good seat? Corbin only make one for 95 and 96.

Thanks

i'm pretty sure triumph makes a solo seat. they did a "Thunderbird Sport" with basically the same makeover they've done to the Bonneville \ Thruxton....a factory cafe. so the seat should be around.

one of the coolest modern cafes i've seen was down in NC. the guy took a creamcycle orange Thunderbird, added a Speed Triple front end, with clip-ons and all, resevoir shocks, mag wheels, hugger, etc....very hot. i dig the triples.

good luck-

The Thunderbird Sport has a different subframe than the standard 'Bird, so the seats won't swap without some modification. I had the same idea for mine several yrs ago, but I have kids who want rides...
I'm sorta looking for a spare stock seat to modify for my '95.

What have you done to "spruce up the horsepower"?

The orange one looks like you could take it on the flat track at the syracuse mile!....

speaking of which, the AMA just added another date to the flattrack schedule...Monticello Raceway in Monticello, NY on Sept 15. it's a pea-gravel horse racing track, and only 'bout 45 miles up Rt.17 from Westtown. i kinda know a guy that's developed a mondern bonneville to go against the HDs and will be running a full season this year.
