Significant Improvement
This is my second Mustang Wide Vintage Solo, but my first with the backrest. This was installed, as was the first one I owned, on a Harley Davidson "Low" model (which all have notoriously poor seats and suspensions). I am a "60 something" that suffered back pain on rides over 80 miles, but with this backrest model I'm now going 130+ .. with no pain at all. This is also my first purchase from Dennis Kirk, and I find their selection, prices, and service to be second to none!

Looks good on 3.3 gallon Nightster
Although Mustang lists this as the seat for the 4.5 gallon sportster tank. If you use it on the 3.3 gallon tank like the Nightster and Iron use you will still have the gap between the rear of the gas tank and the front of the seat. I like having the gap just like the HD engineers designed it. If you buy the seat Mustang suggests for the 3.3 gallon tank you will loose the gap.

Of course it's a mustang seat.. Enough said.

Wow!
I have a 2018 Harley-Davidson 48 Special with a 4.5 gallon tank. Thank you for your detailed dimensions of the seat! It made me feel confident that this seat would fit, because of the different tank and it did. This seat is amazing! My stock seat was awful and after 30-40 miles was painful. I went on a 160 mile ride today and my butt feels great! Very comfortable and love the backrest! Don’t hesitate to get this seat, it is wonderful and worth every penny. And I love the detail of the braid trim. Looks very cool! Love it!

I had to have a backrest
I switched from a full seat to a solo seat because I needed a backrest. I first ordered a saddleman . It was a nice seat but I am short 5'2" and that seat just didn't work. I seen lots of good reviews for the Mustang seats so I tried it.
