Iconic Namesake Covered
March 31, 2015, Three Rivers, MA — The iconic “Pegasus” winged horse continues to fly to new heights in 2015 as Mustang Motorcycle Products, LLC celebrates its 35th anniversary. New products and a new look commemorating this milestone kick off a yearlong celebration from the seat manufacturer. Despite the new look, expect Mustang’s core values of quality, comfort and customer satisfaction to continue! Merging these values with high-tech delivery, Mustang has made digital editions of both its Metric and American V-Twin catalogs available.
“We have traditionally launched our catalogs in Daytona as part of the Bike Week festivities, but we realize not everyone can escape to Florida in the spring,” says Mustang’s Business Development Director Marilyn Simmons. “So this year we are making the catalogs available in their entirety online as well as the printed versions.” Catalogs are available at Mustang’s big rig at most major rallies or you can request a free copy to be mailed to you from the website. For instant gratification, virtual viewing is available at http://www.mustangseats.com/Category/Seat-Catalogs
“Speaking of the catalogs and the associated aviation imagery, we owe a salute to the Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, California, for hosting our catalog shoot,” adds Simmons. “They have one of the largest collections of flying warbirds in existence and are motorcycle riders themselves. Director Jerry Wilkins even does the annual “Run For The Wall” ride from Chino to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC on his Harley every year.”
In addition to the two new catalogs being launched, Mustang’s social media campaign has also taken off. The first of the “5-For-35” seats giveaway on Mustang’s Facebook page was presented in conjunction with Daytona Bike Week. Four more free seats will land in lucky winners’ hands later this season (the Laughlin River Run is next up). More details can be found at:
ABOUT PLANES OF FAME: In addition to being home to several P-51Ds, the only surviving flying P-51A Mustang in the world is based at Planes Of Fame, which made it the perfect venue for the catalog photo shoot. Click here for more details: http://planesoffame.org
