Retro Metal Flake Seats Shine At Sturgis!

25 Jul

MMP14_LB_Sturgis Retro-v1There may be nothing new under the sun as the pundits claim, but that is exactly where the latest seats from Mustang look their best! We are introducing a galaxy of metal flake seats to match the retro color schemes found on the Harley-Davidson Hard Candy Custom™ models. Next week during the Sturgis Rally, Black Hills Harley-Davidson will be the center of the universe for Mustang’s newest custom seat option — Rally goers will see everything from “Deep Space Blue” to “Vortex Green” and even a special surprise retro color scheme!

MMP72_72greenFlake1[1]Part of the extensive custom seat program we introduced last fall, customer demand for metal flake has added even more options when it comes to creating your own seat. Our selection of different stitch patterns, thread colors and now metal flake inserts to choose from makes it possible for anyone to create a truly one-of-a-kind seat.

MMP14_CustomCandy 2Of course Mustang’s staff claims they are all too young to remember when metal flake was first popular, but Mustang is old school. In fact, we have been manufacturing the world’s most comfortable motorcycle seats in our historic New England factory since 1984. With countless combinations of stitching options, 12 contrasting thread colors and now 8 metal flake panels, our custom seat option is available for three of our most popular seat sales for starters: Tripper™ Solo, Tripper Fastback™ and DayTripper™ — but more seats and colors are coming.

Seeing is believing, but these out of this world colors have to be seen in the light of day rather than on a computer screen to really do them justice. We wanted something really special to share with our friends from Black Hills Harley, since they have been such great hosts during the Sturgis Rally. This will be the first place to see the rainbow of retro metal flake colors actually sewn into the seats and mounted on a motorcycle.

Check them out at http://www.mustangseats.com/custom/75625 — but you will have to stop by the Mustang truck at Black Hills Harley-Davidson to see the exclusive unveiling of their “Cosmic Purple” colorway and some other surprises during the Sturgis Rally.

Clean, Class, Comfort… And Now Custom!

AIMB adIn a radical departure from long-standing Mustang tradition, we are now offering custom seats with a selection of different stitch patterns, inlay panels and thread colors to choose from. This gives you the opportunity to make your seat as unique as your ride. For those of you saying “finally” just know that we would not release anything that did not meet our strict quality control standards.

The first step in the automated online seat design process is to pick a stitch pattern. Plain, Tuck And Roll and Diamond Stitch options are all available. Then comes time to pick a color… don’t worry, as you go through each step, you can see exactly how it will look. There is even a magnifying glass tool that enables you to take a close up look at the contrasting stitching colors.

Like Henry Ford with the Model A, you could have your Mustang seat in any color you like so long as it was black. We did add distressed brown to the mix last year, but now we have a full spectrum of colors to choose from, including everything from Sky Blue and Burgundy to Goldenrod and Gun Metal. For you traditionalists, don’t worry, we still offer basic black. However we know that not everyone’s computer monitor is properly color calibrated, so we will be happy to send you a color swatch to confirm it is exactly the shade you want before handcrafting your custom seat.

With all the endless permutations of stitching options, vinyl insert colors and 15 contrasting thread colors, we are introducing the custom seat option on three of our most popular models for starters. Tripper™ Solo, Tripper Fastback™ and DayTripper™ are the three seat styles currently available to design your own seat from.

As if the ability to custom tailor your Motorcycle Bagger Oct 2013very own Mustang seat wasn’t compelling enough, how about getting your bike featured in one of your favorite magazines?  That’s right, in order to kick off our brand new Custom Program, anyone ordering a seat from Mustang will get a 1 year subscription to their choice of American Iron, RoadBike or Motorcycle Bagger magazine… on us! That’s right, all custom seats come with a free sub, courtesy of our friends at TAM Communications Inc.

TAM Starburst Sub Promo Q4 2013Even better, one lucky winner will also have their bike (with its new Mustang seat, of course) featured in their favorite magazine. We will also be posting a custom seat gallery that can serve as inspiration for your own design ideas.
