Awesome ride!
I ordered this Mustang seat and another brand seat for a Sportster. Both seats had a backrest, which is the reason for ordering a replacement seat. I intended on returning the least desirable seat. The Mustang seat was hands-down the better seat. It has a nice back rest, but the saddle itself is SOOOO much more comfortable than the stock Harley seat.
Harley Davidson should really consider making this their stock seat. The comfort is well worth the price.

Comfort at last !
Fitted to my Sportser, the backrest is superb, no more backache. The seat is firm and very supportive all in all make for a comfortable ride. Style is personal choice, but the quality of the seat in construction is excellent value

a worth while buy
we got this seat for my wifes 2010 883L to replace the same seat w/o the back rest because on long rides she needed some support for her back, these mustang seats are a good value but a little spendy when you concider the difference in price between the seats with the back rest and the one without it... now i wouldnt change what we bought, just the price....

these seats are very much worth buying for the comfort and the support, it will take a bit to break them in but afterwards you couldnt ask for a better seat. i also have one on my 2010 dyna and our butts never get tired or hurt after a long ride... that is a good thing... in the pic you can see how this seat fits the back and its nice that the height is adjustable

Mustang Wide Vintage Seat w/Drivers backrest
I purchased this seat for my 2007 HD Sportster 1200R to replace the OEM seat that was OK for the younger generation but not mine. A friend had the same seat on a Dyna that I rode and fell in love wth it, it was a diifferance of night and day. I rode 125 mile straight with no problem where as with my seat I would have stopped 2 or 3 times to rest my back. It fit me like it was designed for me and gave me the support I needed for a long ride. The weather is still cold here in Indiana so I have only gotten to take shot rides since installing it on my Sporty but I already know I won't have any problem running out a tank of fuel before stopping.
The installation is a breeze, I installed it in about 5 minutes as you can see in the enclosed video. Mustang designed this seat exactly to fit the Sporty and the fit is perfect and they included everything needed right down to a zip tie to feed the fender nut through the exsisting hole in the fender. The only tools needed is a phillips screwdriver and allen wrench.
I also purchased the passenger pillion and it installed as easy.
Great product from Mustang and Dennis Kirk, I would recommend both to anyone. Dennis Kirk was exactly on time on delivery and there customer service is awsome.
