Above And Beyond

A story from real life Mustang Seats customers from Daytona International Speedway that we just had to share:

FBImageRealStory3_28_14“We drove from Bennettsville, South Carolina so we could visit the Mustang Representatives at Daytona International Speedway for 2014 Bike Week.  We already had a Mustang seat and were very satisfied with the comfort so we knew that’s what we wanted.  The only reason we needed a new one was for height purposes.  We were greeted by not one but two wonderful & professional men, Vin & Joe.

After speaking with them they had my husband pull our Street Glide under their trailer.  Those guys changed seats & changed seats & changed seats & even put the same seats on twice just so both of us could sit on them to make sure we were comfortable & happy.  And let me go ahead and put this out there – my husband is very particular about details.

They never made us feel like we were rushed to get done, they treated us with respect and courtesy. They were very professional and yet so personable at the same time.  They even took time to take pictures with me.  So to Vin & Joe – we truly appreciate everything you did for us, y’all are the best of the best (these guys deserve a big bonus) and to Mustang, we salute you for not only making the best motorcycle seats ever but for making sure your company is represented by people like Vin & Joe.”

Thanks again.  Don & Darlene Caulder

We were able to get our 2014 catalogs printed just in time for Bike Week in Daytona. Believe it or not, we have been handcrafting the world’s most comfortable motorcycle seats in our historic New England facility since 1980. In fact, our photogenic factory is the backdrop for the 2014 catalogs.  Although we love our factory with its old hardwood floors and red brick construction, we were getting cabin fever and needed the excuse to make a run to the sun, even if it meant hand-delivering the new catalogs to Florida… that’s our excuse and we’re sticking with it!

MMP14_NonHarleyRetFCov-smIf you didn’t make it to Daytona to thaw out and take the hand-off of a handcrafted catalog during Bike Week, you can still access Mustang’s 2014 virtual versions. The 124-page “Metric” catalog — including the full line of Mustang seats for Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Victory cruisers as well as Triumph and BMW applications — can be found at:

While the V-Twin version is available at:

MMP14_HarleyRetail_FCov-smIn addition to having seats for most metric cruisers and Harley-Davidson® models on the road, we have really broadened our range in recent years with Victory, Triumph and Gold Wing applications. All new additions for 2014 include BMW, Yamaha Bolt and our expanded custom seat program. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg from our New England master craftsmen.

Mustang’s reputation for comfort is a given, but now we are making a name for ourselves on the style side. Collaborating with fellow New Englander Dave Perewitz to create his own signature series seats has been in the works for more than a year, but it is well worth the wait. Meanwhile the seats that we are making for Roland Sands Design remain on the cutting edge of cool!

Our 240-page master catalog for the dealers should be on the countertop at your favorite shop by now, and as mentioned, our pair of supplements specifically for Harley-Davidson® and Metric models are also available at a rally near you. Just look for the Mustang big rig at these events:
