I would like to ad a back rest for the driver to my stock hd tri glide trike stock seat does this mustang back rest fit ?
Donald D on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The backrest mounts to the fender and battery box under the seat. Not sure what your fender looks like but, if you have the two bolts from fender (right about where your tail bone would be) then I would say it fits. Also, you must have slit in stock seat for backrest to come through.
are you able to adjust the back rest as you are driving down the road or do you have to stop, get off and adjust it?
Bikertweety on Jun 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You will have to stop and get off to adjust it
I'm looking for a backrest that will lay down flat and stay down on it's own while my wife is getting on not spring back up on it's own. Will this do that?
Dave L on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This will do exactly that, there is no spring on this backrest so wherever you bend it to, it'll stay until you push or lean against it to push it back against the stop. I've gotten into the lazy habit of laying it flat just so I have an easier time throwing my leg over the bike and I'm 6'4.
How exactly do you remove the backrest?
Chuck on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is a small flat head tension screw accessible from the slot the back rest comes through. Unscrew a turn or two to release the tension on the backrest post and pull straight up. It probably took longer to read this than actully do it. Hope this helps.
Are you going to be at Gettysburg bike week?
Sam E on Jun 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I got this backrest for my wife's tri-glide and its a perfect fit. Exactly what they say , easy to install and very comfortable .Best prices and fast shipping.
I have a Mustang solo seat W/O the backrest. Can I add this backrest to the bike with this sea?
David E on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This Mustang backrest, part #79610 is for the factory 14-18 HD FL 1 piece seat and Mustang 1 piece seat. If your Mustang Solo seat has the built in socket you can order a backrest for it. Go to the Mustang website and search backrests under your Mustang Solo seat part number (located on the seat pan). Dennis Kirk can also order the correct backrest if you provide your seat number. I hope that helps!

Will this backrest mount work with the Harley-DavidsonTall Boy seat on a 2017 Road Glide?
Chas M on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I cannot say for sure because I purchased a street glide. I can say that I was very happy with how it worked on the street glide
Will this backrest fit with the standard Harley Davidson seat, or do you have to replace the seat as well?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should work with stock seat
I have a 2017 RGS with a slightly larger-than-stock (and slightly taller) Hammock one-piece seat. Does anyone have anything similar and the backrest still fold over flat or near flat? Thanks!
A shopper on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, we do not

Nice look, nice fit.
Better price than the HD version with more adjustability. Makes long rides more comfortable.
Mounts to fender and top of battery box.
Easy install.  5 nuts.
Matches stitching nicely. Great for long (2500 in 5 days) rides.

Great Value
I had a Harley Davidson adjustable rider's backrest on my previous bike and, thought it was adequate, it pushed me too far forward. This unit was about $100 less expensive but is significantly more confortable for me. Also, I had seen a review where the owner indicated the materials didn't quite match the stiching / color of the OEM seat. I did not find this to be the case at all. The material and manufacturing are an extremely good match. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and would do so again.

Great Product
Bought this instead of the Harley backrest and glad I did.
Easy to install, had it done in ten minutes and on the road.
The quality is great and the fit was perfect on my ultra with the factory seat.
Great comfort and support on your low back.
Would highly recommend this product.

Mustang Adjustable Smooth Driver Backrest
Good product, good price here, and received in a reasonable time frame. I have this same back rest on my other bike and find that it really saves my back on long rides. Very easy to install.

Great Backrest
This is a great backrest. Install is easy and the material matches the factory seat on my Ultra. It is easy to adjust up and down, and forward and backward. I think it looks better and is easier to operate than the Harley backrest. I would buy it again if I had to do it over again.

Treble set screw design
I received the back rest and I could not wait to install it. My problem started with removing the set screw. The screw must be removed before completing the installation. The screw is a standard screw. The screw was so tight that I striped the screw with a standard screw driver. I had to remove it with vise grips damaging the screw. The screw should be at least a hex screw, very poor design. I would not recommend this back rest unless the screw is replaced with a better design.

nice
Seems to have all the adjustment I need. I like being able to adjust while riding. easy installation. Seams and texture do not quite match Harley original equipment seat, but close enough.
