MUSTANG GOES BIG AND TALL

1 May

Our Super Touring Seat Is Now Available For Most Early FL Models

76971_app2_hd-smTime for a quick history lesson! Since 1941, Harley-Davidson® has used the “FL” designation for its large displacement touring bikes. It is tough to argue with nearly 75 years of success, but we do believe there was one area that needed an update: the seat. Sure we are biased, but taller riders were feeling a bit cramped in the stock riding position which is why one of Mustang’s most popular seats has been our “Super Touring” model for later FLs, which sits the rider back further than stock.

Answering the many requests from ‘big or tall’ riders, we are proud to introduce the new Super Touring Seat for early model FLs that provides an extra inch for more comfortable riding and better control of the bike. Mustang’s new Super Touring seats are now available for 1997-2007 Road Kings, 1997-’05 Screamin’ Eagle editions and 2006-’07 FLHX Street Glides plus 1997-07 FLHT/FLTR models. Big and tall riders now have access to increased safety and all-day riding comfort.

Although The Motor Company has a well-established reputation for producing one of the most respected touring machines on earth, we have a pretty respectable track record of our own! Since 1980, we have been handcrafting the world’s most comfortable seats in our Three Rivers, MA factory. Historically speaking, Harley has set the bar pretty high, but our Super Touring seat lives up to its name… and The Motor Company’s reputation.

That extra inch of set back offered by Mustang’s one-piece Super Touring seats is a real game changer. The 19” wide driver seat offers maximum comfort and support. Since it is more fun to tour with a friend, the passenger portion of the Super Touring seat also benefited from Mustang’s exacting design process. The passenger seat is 14” wide to ensure that both riders enjoy maximum comfort. The Super Touring seat is also split to accept the stock or Mustang driver backrest kit. Since form follows function, the Super Touring seat is contoured in order to better clear the saddlebag lids.

76972_hd-smMustang hasn’t overlooked the importance of looks, either. Chrome or subtle black pearl-centered studs give this new seat a touch of elegance. Of course any sort of stud is perceived as too ostentatious by many minimalists, so Mustang also offers a plain Vintage version of the Super Touring seat. Big or tall, studs or plain, Mustang has a super seat option for any Harley FL rider going back to the 1997 models. A historical legacy we are pretty proud of!

Mustang Puts on the Heat for Harley FL Seats

2 Feb

Heated-Motorcycle-SeatWhen you see a Harley-Davidson FL on a cold night with a rider who’s sitting large and smiling big, chances are his or her butt’s plunked down on a heated motorcycle seat from Mustang. The only way we could possibly improve the comfort of our legendary seats was to install some heat for the cold months and that’s just what we did.

Our new heated Touring seat features illuminated switches on the side for you to conveniently adjust the dual zone and high/low settings for both yourself and the passenger. The seat is constructed of triple-layer fiberglass and installs easily. It comes with a wire harness that hooks to an accessory port in front of the battery. There is no need for OE controllers or switches.

Our one-piece heated Touring seat provides the fullest seat possible — providing comfort both in the front and back. Featuring a 17-inch-wide front bucket and a 14-inch-wide rear seat, our heated Touring seat is also available in a “Super” style that offers a 19-inch-wide front bucket that puts the driver 1.75 of an inch further back than the stock seat.

Both our standard Touring and the Super Touring heated seats fit Road King, FLHT, FLTR and FLHX Street Glide 2008-up models and are (more…)

A Motorcycle Seat for Tall Riders: Mustang Super Touring Comfort for FL

5 May

Motorcycle riders come in all shapes and sizes, including tall. If you stand 5’ 11” or above and want to sit a little farther back when cruising, check out our new one-piece Super Touring seat. Not only does the driver have a deeply pocketed, 19–inch-wide front bucket, but the Super Touring seat moves the driver 1.75-inches farther back than the stock seat on 2008 to 2010 Harley-Davidson FL model bikes. Another added benefit for taller riders: The Super Touring seat is lower than stock, which allows you to firmly plant your feet firmly on the ground!

Never forgetting your passenger, we made sure the Super Touring seat is 14–inches wide and fully supported by our unique internal support wings that eliminate sagging at the edges. A matching wrap-around passenger backrest with thicker, extended arms for only $279 ensures all-day comfort for your passenger. The backrest translates into fewer passenger complaints — and let’s face it… that makes everyone happy.

Our one-piece Super Touring seat features an optional, fully adjustable driver backrest that folds flat for ease in getting on and off the motorcycle. It can be removed easily without tools, and lists for only $719 retail with chrome studs. Or the seat can be purchased with black, pearl-centered studs or without studs.
