C&C seats review

Decided to try a seat from C&C.

After browsing their website late Sunday night, I sent them an inquiry about the Fastback model.
I exchanged a few emails with Shad on Monday and felt like I was their #1 customer for the day.

I decided on a double stitch diamond pattern in Shark, with the driver seat 3" back, and called Shad with my order-late Monday evening.

I received a confirmation email on Tuesday morning to make sure everything was correct.
Tuesday evening I received an email from UPS about shipment.
Wednesday around noon, Shad sent photos of the finished seat.
Friday night it's installed on my bike.

It sits lower than stock-1" according to C&C. The 3" back is awesome, feels like a different bike now.
I think I've found my 'go to' seat company!

Hi, I know this post is kind of old but I'm looking for a fastback also. I'm 6'2" and 240, not sure if I should go with 2 or 3" back. WHat size are you and are you still happy with the 3" setback?

6'2 1/2", 36" sleeve and 36" inseam.

The Fastback was on my former RG. I had also tried a LePera Outcast DLL that was 2" back and the Harley Tall Boy seat. I could tell a difference. I hated feeling cramped up.

I have a C&C Tour Special on my new RGU that is also 3" back. It's wonderful!

If local, you're more than welcomed to try them out.

I'm actually in the market for a new seat so I went to their website to check them out. They seem to have a lot of different options available and they also offer custom work. They seem to have decent prices too so I emailed them for more information

Is that your bike in your avatar? If so and thats a custom fender, make sure you tell them about it and send pictures. You can search for my experience with the company. Also, make them send pictures of your actual seat before they ship it. They told me they would, they didn't and then tried sending me pics of a different seat when it was wrong. Pay close attention to the fitment at the front. Lots of issues with them getting the front off center. If they manage to get it all right, I hear they are great seats! Lol

I have the square back seat with drivers backrest from them on my glide. Best seat I’ve ever owned other than the custom one from James carter on my last glide. I did the 2 tone with blue stitching. Also did the 3” back and 1” lower. I’m 6’1” 300lbs.

Thanks for the offer - but I'm from NJ. This has been very helpful though, thank you!

Trying to decide if I could go with a standard 1" back at 6'2" or if I should go with 2" back...

yes that is my bike in the picture. That actually is the stock fender with the cvo fascia and lights. The tank is stock as well. It's nothing really out of the ordinary. I emailed them lastnight so I'll see what they have to say if I get a reply back. Thanks for the info though

I like that squareback seat. Did you have any problems with the company or the quality?

Absolutely zero issues. One of the best companies I’ve dealt with.
