Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
After trying so many seats, and never finding one that worked for my butt for even a half an hour... not even the Ultimate or the ED, I had this strange experience:

Last weekend, I went up to New Hampshire to ride home, about 90 miles, at least an hour and a half to 2 hours, a '99 a friend bought, and I was going to evaluate for him... it had one of those hard as rock Mustang seats with studs, and concho with tassle.

I thought the thing would likely kill me... but, I got all the way home, and got off with NO discomfort whatsoever! I was very strangely surprised, to put it mildly.

So, my question is: Does anyone have a Mustang seat for sale? Or, perhaps would like to swap?

I've got a perfect ED standard set with studs... and other seats besides, if anyone's up for a swap.

Re:Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
Good luck with the search QC; hopefully someone will be able to trade. If you don't find one, something to consider; I went through the same as you, tried many seats, including the ED and Mustang, etc. none worked for me. Then I picked up a used Looney seat that happened to come with a generic seat back. (see my sig photo below) It's hard as a rock but man, I can put in 12+ hour days no problem, and it gives me tons of room. It does sit me *way* low in the bike, but I prefer that over feeling like i'm "on top" of the bike. It also helps with the handling since it lowers the center of gravity considerably. It took me a few rides to get used to how low it is, but now I don't want to ride anything else. My new bike came with a nice Mustang seat with drivers back rest and studs/fringe...sounds like what you're referring to. It wasn't bad, but I definitely preferred my Looney and sold the Mustang.

I hope you find what you're looking for brother. Comfort is key to happy riding.

Re:Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
The seat description you are giving for the Mustang sounds just like my Corbin seat. Hard as rock wide and pretty comfortable as well. I am 6'2" and 200 and it does not bother me at all on long multi hour rides. It does put me a bit higher up than I like but it sounds identical to your Mustang. Have you tried the Corbin seat?

If you are looking for a Mustang I may have a line on one locally here. A former member has one in town here that she was selling and called me. I can give her a call if you want to see if she still has it. Let me know.

Re:Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
This topic came up on a Star bikes forum here a while back. Seemed everyone had their own preferences on what worked well for them. One member mentioned these beads and I thought for $14 it might be something worth trying. Not out much if it doesn't help.

Just another thought.

The mustang is like my corbin I have on my bike. I can take a picture of it but it's just a plain seat, no tassel's or concho's and all I have is the drivers seat. I don't have any back seat so I have no need for the rear. If your interested in seeing the seat I'll take some pictures.

Re:Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
I have a stock riders seat that I had modded at a local upholstery shop who does lots of work for our Harley dealership (among others).

The other seat I have is a ED big touring.

I flip flop between the two seats and find myself riding most of the time riding with the stock seat modded by the local shop for $90 out the door.

Just my .02 worth

YMMV

Re:Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks ago  
I've got that exact Mustang Seat on Ebay right now, but it's missing a couple studs on the passenger seat and has the backrest. I have the ED Big Tour now but I am not as impressed as I thought I would be. It should break in more though, or so they say. Anyway, I listed on Ebay to get more cash to buy more stuff but the thought of trying a different seat interests me a bit too..

Re:Does anybody have...? 4 Weeks ago  
Thanks all... I made the same request on the FB page, and I have a set of the Mustang seats coming to me out of Minnesota as a direct swap for my ED seat set. Studded, with concho, and a little fringe!

Mine went into the mail to him today!
