I haven't had much time to do a lot of long riding with it yet, but the back rest and seat are incredibly comfortable


Put this on a soft tail slim. Made a big difference with the heat from the oil tank. The ride is much better.


Certainly helped on the 1200 mile round trip, backrest a little off square, but didn't have time to send it back, will live with it. Didn't need my back brace, so much better on the arse.


Love it! This is seat is worth every penny. A lot more comfortable than the stock seat and the backrest is an added bonus. I'm so glad I got it!


Great Purchase and an awesome product! The backrest is an added bonus. Worth every dollar. It did raise the riding position a bit, but the ride is a lot more comfortable and no back pain!


One of the best investments I have ever made ! For longer trips I don't think it can be beat. It's not cheap, but WELL worth it.


The seat looks great and I like the backrest but after 25 minutes into the ride my junk goes numb and the comfort level gets worse with every added minute. The next ride I put on a sheep skin but only added about 5 minutes before my butt started hurting. Wish I could return the seat.


Very happy with the seat and backrest. Would recommend both.


i love my new mustang seat very comfortable the back rest is awesome thoses long rides are a lot more pleasant should of done it along time ago well worth the money

Excellent addition to my bike very very comfortable ex wide is the way to go no more back pain or monkey butt. I don't use the back rest much , so I took it off it is nice to have for long trips though


Looks to be well built.

Fit and finish is excellent. Unfortunately, I won't be able to use this for a few months.


Fits the bike well. Very comfortable.


Worth every penny! Seat is much better that what I had and the back rest helps my back.


Super comfortable after it breaks in. Back rest is great after you get used to having one. Flip back rest down to keep seat a lot cooler when parking bike in sun. Have had this for 5 years. Still looks new. '06 FLSTFI


Love it!


Comfortable seat the back rest is great for a bad back.


This seat is absolutely amazing! Extremely comfortable, solid construction and the removable backrest is unbelievably comfortable for those longer rides. The only downside is that, for me, it did move me back a tad. (I had previously installed extended forward controls for increased comfort and this made for an odd adjustment for a day, but it's awesome!) I would highly recommend the offset backrest tongue from Mustang as well, this will allow you to sit/lean a little further back and not be perfectly upright for hours on end. Each is adjustable with a knurled thumb screw but the offset one is perfect! Highly recommend!


Great seat, easy to install and offers comfort plus!


A great seat! I have a bad back and the back rest is a big help on long rides.


Great old guy seat.




Well worth the money and looks great. I love my new seat and backrest combo and makes the ride that much better. My only regret is that I wished I had gotten it a long time ago. My VH pipes are next...Thanks JPs.




Great product, Fits perfectly on my Fat Bob and its so Comfy


Extremely comfortable! The adjustable back support is outstanding. I don't know how I sat on the original! Long trips are a breeze! Fast shipping and perfect fitment. What more could you ask for?


I live about 80 miles from the Ormond Beach store and wanted a new seat so went there and tried a few before buying this one. I installed it on my 2011 Wide Glide and rode around Daytona for a wile before riding home. This is a great seat, very comfortable. The ride home was really great, wasn't tired at all when I got home. This makes riding my bike even better.


Fast shipping. Was very comfortable nice to have backrest built into seat


Great seat fits perfect. I have owned mustang seats before. They are a quality product and look great. Delay in shipping due to back order. Worth the wait.


I bought this for my wife's '04 XL 883 and she absolutely LOVES it. She said it is the most comfortably saddle she has been in and makes the bike feel so much better. She feels much more comfortable, in control, and 'in tune' with her bike. And with J&P's Christmas Discount; this was the best present I could get her!


Has the original seat beat by a long shot.


Simple swap for stock on my Iron. Great vintage look and certainly more comfortable than stock for longer rides.


Put this seat on my sportster 48. Made a trip to from Nashville to lawrence kansas. Seat felt great. I have no complaints.


Like riding a new Bike Love it


Bought seat for my 2009 Sportster 1200 custom. This seat with the backrest, seems to have solved the pain I got in my tailbone from riding with my stock seat. Only downside is that the seat raised my sitting height on the bike, thereby making me reach to the handle bars. Otherwise, I love it.


Great product. Great comfort back rest helps a lot.


Love to look, quality and comfort


Excellent seat, the backrest really helps. Comfortable, maybe a little softer would be better but then it may not support you enough, so I'd defer to their expertise. Very well made, Material is hemmed before being riveted to the seat base underneath, can't see it but that's quality. Better than the Sundowner seat that was on the bike.


Great Seat. Would recommend to all!


Fit and installation were good, appearance is great. haven't ridden yet to comment on comfort


Nice seat but it raised me up to high and I can't properly reach the ground now. Going to have to sell it.


Best seat ever! Ordered it for my 2012 FatBoyLo and couldn't be happier. I have tail bone issues and this seat resolved them all for me. I ride long distances quite often and have had no problems with soreness since getting this seat.


A great upgrade from the stock sear.


This is the seat you are looking for if you want true, all-day ride comfort. This IS THE SEAT. I bought one for my V-Star 1100 Custom back in 2012, and it surpassed all expectations. I wanted a new seat for my 2014 HD Fat Boy, and against my better judgement went with a Mustang Daytripper, due to being able to get it in brown and with diamond stitching, both for no upcharge and without a 5-6 week lead time. BIG MISTAKE. The Daytripper doesn't hold a candle to this seat. I had to eat the cost of the Daytripper and order this seat (I decided against ordering direct from Mustang because of the color and stitching upcharge and the 5-6 week lead time. I wanted it NOW). Got it, bolted it up, and went for a 20-mile test ride. It's like sitting on the most comfy chair you've ever had the pleasure of planting your gluteus maximus upon. The fit is perfect, the aesthetics are perfect, and the comfort is astounding. Short of dragging along your own personal masseuse to get a tuckus massage every time you stop and get off the bike, this is the way to go. Did I happen to mention that THIS. IS. THE. SEAT. YOU. WANT.? Because it is. Don't even bother looking at another seat. It won't be as comfortable.

Awesome seat. Have a 09 Fatboy with factory seat and Air hawk. The Airhawk helped a ton with pain in my tailbone, just couldn't get over how ugly it looked. Went with the Mustang seat and backrest. WOW what a difference! Looks awesome and feels fantastic. The backrest actually plants you on the bike. Feels so much more solid. Best money ever spent on my bike.


This is a well constructed and comfortable seat. It's a little taller than the stock seat, with more padding. Fits the bike perfectly.


My wife absolutely loves the Mustang Vintage Solo Seat. We recently vacationed in the Smoky Mountains riding just under 1,000 miles in 5 days and not one soreness complaint. I have a Mustang seat on my bike and we have a Mustang seat on a third bike we have. Mustang all the way.


this is the most comfortable seat I've ever had. I can't believe I rode this bike for 45,000 with out it! J&P tech support was spot on, not condescending to a woman caller. There did seem to be a little delay from when they told me it would ship and when it actually shipped, but everything else was perfect.


Very nice...feels great....backrest is i can ride with my bros....miles and miles.....made in USA complaints. ...


Love love love this seat. Has helped me with back pain. Tremendously!!!


I'm impressed. Even on the 3rd day of 350 miles or more, this seat was still kissing' my backside. I never needed my Air Hawk cushion.


love the seat very cushey, and the back rest will save my back great shipping time. good price.


great seat
