Corbin Warbird in England – 1987 Harley-Davidson FXR Custom

In America, Cruiser, Custom by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Corbin company is best known for their seats, but they’ve also made luggage and even a three-wheeled EV! Today we’re focusing on a bodywork set created for the Harley-Davidson FXR. It was called the Warbird.

The Warbird kit included a fairing, chin spoiler, side covers, tail section, and of course, a Corbin seat. Warbird is a term used for vintage military aircraft that’s now in civilian hands, and Corbin describes this kit as a “series of components designed to work together for a unified look or can be used individually to convert a stock Harley-Davidson FXR into a rolling work of art. Together the components capture the essence of classic Warbirds like the Corsair, Mustang and Thunderbolts for an aggressive stance and smooth aerodynamic line.”

This example is said to have come out of the Corbin collection (and the paintwork matches what’s shown in the link above to the Corbin site). Other modifications include a FLH swingarm, Works Performance shocks, BST carbon fiber wheels, and V-Rod forks/brakes. The engine was replaced with a 2003 Twin Cam 88 (bumped to 95ci), which dyno’d at 92 horsepower at 107 lb-ft of torque. It was featured in a 2014 issue of American Iron Magazine, a copy of which is included in the sale.
