So far so good, haven't taken it on a long trip yet. Only 4 stars because the sissy bar that went with my Sundowner seat cannot fit as this saddle is a hair longer than my last one and I cannot screw it down. This is on a deuce, looks great. I'm not a fan of Studs, but these Studs make it unique looking.


The seat is beautiful and matches my Saddleman saddle bags perfectly. It does not have the bolt eyelets on the side of the seat. Only the front clip and a rear bolt in the fender are the only means of attachment. The seat does not extend as low on the sides as the original seat on my 1999 Fatboy. The seat platform in which the cushion is attached is made of plastic and not metal like the original. Lastly, the seat is not as soft as I had hoped. It will take some saddle soap and riding to break it in. It makes you sit about 1/2" to 1" higher as well.


Nice looking seat. Front tab didn't fit right. Had to bend. Seat is not as wide as my old Corbin and I sit higher now definitely need to get use to it.

I am disappointed. I bought this seat thinking from all descriptions, that it would be a softer. It isn't Its a very hard seat. The front tab has to be rebent to fit under the front tab enough to get it far enough forward to use the rear mounting tab. The quality of the seat is very good...just be warned, if you want a softer seat, this isn't the one, and it is approx. 17 inches wide..


I love my new seat 1st day rode over 200 mi most comfortable ride yet and it looks awsum


Placed on Vulcan 1500 Classic. Looks and sits great. Give good back support without a backrest bar. Passenger seat is comfortable per wife.
