I put this Backrest on my Electra Glide Standard. We had a small backrest that came with the aftermarket Tour Pack. My wife loves this backrest. The extended arms are strong enough to take the bumps in the road, and the material is great - it keeps a new look even after long hours in the sun. It looks really nice on my Glide with an aftermarket rest, even though it lists as a King (HD) Backrest! I applied Lexol to the leather as soon as I installed it.
Better quality and better fit than the stock Harley seat plus my wife loves the longer armrests. I matched it with the Mustang LowDown Touring Seat which has better lines than the stock seat and couldn't be happier. Bike looks great.
I have a 91 ultra made a huge difference in appearance and comfort. Easy to attach just go to mustangs site for suggestions. Had some issues with ordering but your customer service called me on a sunday to straighten it out and actually saved my but my card had been stolen and thanks to Courtney my order was not delayed. Will be placing more orders.
I was redoing a trunk from a wrecked HD and purchased this seat since I already had Mustang seats. It fits like a glove. Like other Mustang products its made bulletproof. The threaded lugs adjust to fit a wide variety of configurations and the mounts are vibration resistant. It matches my seats perfectly and my wife loves the support higher up her back. She has also made mention that the 2 inch extension for the arm rests makes a big difference in her riding comfort. If you want the job done right, get this seat.
This Mustang tour-pak backrest is a good looking, quality crafted item that will not only dress up your bike, but also add more comfort and style. It matches perfectly with the Mustang solo driver's seat and passenger's seat. This backrest is supposed to match up to the mounting holes for ten years worth of Harley tour-paks. Anything made from fiberglass and made for so many years is bound to be slightly different from one year to another. Thus even with adjustable mounting studs, I had a heck of a time aligning the backrest to the mounting holes in the tour-pak. Additionally, the shape of this backrest is different than the stock Harley backrest and covers less area of the tour-pak. I mention this because the backrests, stock or otherwise, wear away the paint on the tour-pak over time. So when I changed to the Mustang backrest, more of the worn away area showed. That's not a real big deal since you can have the tour-pak painted or touch it up yourself, but it is worth noting so you won't be surprised. One additional surprise was the difference between the mounting studs and plates used by Harley and the mounting studs and washers used by Mustang. Harley used two studs for each of the three mounting locations but Mustang only uses one stud for each mounting location. The problem with that is two-fold; first, you have to use the Harley mounting plate otherwise you lose the cable that keeps the lip from flying completely open. Second, you're left with holes. They don't show from the outside but if you ride in the rain then you're apt to get water in your tour-pak if you don't plug the holes. Mustang does include some stick on patches that go over the holes although they say nothing about them in the backrest mounting instructions. Lastly I should mention that aligning the adjustable studs is no easy task. I really scared up the paint around the holes trying to get the studs positioned in exactly or at least in the best place. Luckily all the scratches are behind the backrest and not visible from the outside. All in all, I like the quality and look of the backrest but I wish they would or could use the exact same mounting system as Harley. My wife likes the comfort, which is superior to the stock backrest and that by far is the most important thing.
This is a 100% improvement over a stock and almost any aftermarket backrest. My passenger compared it side by side on same bike with old VS New and this one is way way way more comfortable. So spring for it. The way they had to set up the studs to fit so many years makes it a somewhat frustrating install, but it's well worth the trouble as with any upgrade. The materials and quality are right up there, the best.
