Default Corbeau seats $325

Up for sale are these Corbeau seats. They are new a few months ago. I had one installed on stock frame rails for a few hours. The seat was confortable, but I didn't like getting in and out of the seat. (I'm a little older than most you guys on here, lol). Anyway, they're up for sale. The other one is still in it's origional plastic. $325 for the pair. Local pickup preferred. If you want them shipped you can figure it out. My zip is 60563. Thanks for looking.

What model Corbeau is it and what does it weigh?

I'll be 42 in November... and have a body fat percentage higher than most of the people on this forum... (read, I'm a fatty!)

I can slide in and out of my Sparco Sprint V equipped Miata with ease... though it does require a bit of upper body lifting/pressing.

If you still want to put race seats in your Miata.. you might want to give them a try. They seem to have a much lower height up front than the Corbeau's you have now.

They look like the Forza. A little backstory. I picked these up from a lady on ebay who was selling off her husband's car projects/inventory due to his rapidly declining health. They were shipped to me and the box looked like it had sat for awhile. I couldn't find a model of what these are, Forza's I would imagine. They weigh 21.8 lbs each.
Here is what the mounting points on the bottom look like.

And here is what the box looked like. It looks like someone was spray painting near the box at some point. Inside the seats are pristine. If you want these shipped, I would imagine Greyhound would be the cheapest.

So, can you confirm dimensions between the Forza and the Forza Wide?

It is 22.5" from outside of the foam to outside of the foam. It looks like the specs for the regular Forza.
Yes there is a sub strap hole.

I'm 46 and my Miata is not a daily... but having a Sparco Roadster in the car for the last 8 years or so has allowed for easy in-out and decent support. You guys with dual purpose cars might want to look at Roadster seats if you can find them used.

Me... I'm looking for something a bit more supportive at the thighs for autocross (275 Hoosiers toss you around pretty good, especially with just a lap belt). Albeit I'm looking for something a bit lighter, probably. What I'm curious about is that large front thigh thing on this seat. Almost looks like the butt will be way to low, no?

BTW, this is not Forza. Forza has the name Corbeau written on the front. Forza Sport has a different pattern on the backrest. And none of them have this pronounced front support. Either way, looks like a nice seat for a very decent price.

I looked around some before calling it Corbeau. Maybe the guy's wife didn't know any better cause they were in a Corbeau box. She said he'd had them for quite a while. New old stock maybe. But your right, they don't have the brand name printed in the fabric. The size is almost identical to the Forza.
As far as the thigh support, I believe these are designed to have a optional pad in the bottom for taller/shorter drivers. It makes sense. I also peeled back the fabric and to see the the foam. It was easy to slice a layer of the foam to lower the height of that area to adjust the thigh support.

I estimated the shipping costs from Chicago to San Diego.(2'x2'x4' 75lbs)
UPS @$240
Greyhound @$95
