I purchased this seat for my 2007 VTX1300C and I will say, it was a much needed change! The stock seat is comfortable for running around for a few hours but this seat is heaven compared to the stock seat! So comfortable and actually form fits the base of the tank better than the OEM one. The stock one uses four points to connect the seat, a rear nut, two side bolts and a plastic underlip in the front for under the tank. There are only two points that hold on the new seat as there are no side bolt holes to attach the seat as the stock one used but the underlip is metal on this one as opposed to the plastic on the stock one. Which I like but I would have liked there to be the side bolts as well. The rear is metal as well and the fit is snug. If there were side bolts to hold the seat I would have given five stars but the comfort of this seat and quality is too notch!
