I have an '85 Honda Sabre 700, the smallest of the three offered then (700, 750 and 1100). I desperately need a better seat, and found one, sort of, online for the 82-85 model year range for the 750.

Any clue if that would fit my 700? Can't imagine they change the frame around for an extra 50cc's.

Thanks.

I couldn't imagine that a company would make a 700 and 750 of the same bike in the same year. So I certainly wouldn't be surprised if the seats are different.

Yeah the 700, which was actually 698cc's was built to skate under tariffs so to be cheaper, since any bike 700cc and above would have a tax on it from the US.

Honda has never known how to manufacture a comfortable seat. If you cant find one that will fit to swap with, you might consider sending it off to one of the places that rebuild your existing seat. I sent mine to a place call Mean City Cycles. They turned my brick into a comfy seat. I'm very pleased with their work.

I'm assuming the cost does not include reupholstering does it?

That seems very cheap considering the procedure.

They will repair your upholstery or re-upholster if you want but that is extra. In my case they re-used my upholstery. They made the passenger seat 4 inches wider and added to my existing upholstery to cover the extra area and that is included.
