HOT RODS TRANSLATE INTO THE QUEEN’S ENGLISH

hotrod_1The classic low-slung look of the hot rod may have started in America, but it has translated well into the Queen’s English as Triumph took the styling cues for the Speedmaster and the America straight from a 1950s jalopy. Since these motorcycles roots reside on this side of the pond, we decided it was high time for Mustang’s New England craftsmanship to merge with motorcycles from merry olde England. We now have a complete range of replacement seats and accessories for the Triumph America and Speedmaster.

We wanted to improve the ergonomics for the quintessential British motorcycle, without disrupting the the aesthetics. Mustang’s seats flow with the long, low lines of this pair of Brit Bikes… but better yet, they bring Mustang’s legendary comfort into the equation. Now the best of both worlds is available to riders around the world.

The America is engineered around a unique engine, so you get a truly authentic ride… one that connects you to Triumph’s rich heritage. Since the soul of any motorcycle is its engine, the Speedmaster and the America’s upright twin configuration and unique 270-degree firing order really deliver on ride characteristics that are unique to Triumph. Mustang sought to accentuate this experience without dramatically changing the look or the feel of the motorcycle. The best way to achieve this goal was to add comfort to these classic cruisers with Mustang’s renowned design and quality.

Technically speaking, the 14.5″ wide seat sets the rider slightly back. The 11″ wide passenger seat is designed with the optimal seating angle for long-distance travel. There is also an extensive selection of options and accessories for the America and Speedmaster seats, including fender and tank bibs, backrests and sissy bar pads.

Whether it is the Queen’s English or our own distinctive New England dialect, Mustang speaks your language when it comes to seats for Triumphs.
