Default Better Than OE Seat

I finally got the Mustang Wide Vintage Solo seat for my 2010 Kingpin, what a difference over stock Vic seat, better back support and very comfortable, did a 300 mile ride over the weekend and could have gone all day with ease. I fit like a glove and raised me up just slightly, my feat still touch ground just fine.

That's awesome, I am looking forward to getting the same seat. Did you get it from mustang direct or somewhere else?

Glad you like your new seat. I'll add a word of warning though that Mustangs are notoriously wide by design AS WELL AS being higher than normal. So you give up an inch or so of height, plus another few inches at your thighs. You should mention how tall you are and your inseam size if you want to recommend this seat. I would expect it to make a difference of several inches versus the stock seat. I doubt that it's 'just an inch' in difference as far as putting your feet down while seated. It would be just an inch when you slide forward while at rest and get around the wider seat pan. Taller riders won't notice it, and some people don't mind. But it's worth mentioning for anyone considering the switch.

Smile Mustang Solo Seat Fit

I understand completely and that was one of my main concerns but after reading other reviews I went for it and never regretted. I am 5'8" with 30" inseam. Yes the seat is much wider that OE and lits you up and back a bit but I find it quite comfortable, the wider seat pan work fine for me.

Skooter,

Do you have more pics of the seat? Maybe a little clearer and different angles? If not its cool, just wondering.

looks good, wonder if it works with stock bitch pad. I had a mustang on my Royal Star is was a great seat but, raised me up a bit. Does it move you back any?
