Mustang Seats now has custom seats available for Harley’s new entry level 500cc and 750cc Street models. Mustang went top shelf with a trio of their popular Fastback, Vintage Touring and Vintage Touring with backrest seats for the Streets.
“Our seats for the 500 and 750 Street are more than replacements – they are upgrades to your riding experience. You can now take your Harley from the street to the highway… and beyond,” says Mustang Seats Marketing Manager Marilyn Simmons. “The first all-new motorcycle platform that Harley has introduced in 13 years makes the Street something special and we have been planning our replacement seat since we first saw the 500 and 750 prototypes on display at the EICMA show in Milan in 2013.”
Rather than a stripped down, bare bones approach to the Street seats, Mustang opted to pull out all the stops for the Fastback seat: contrasting stitching, reinforced welting and mesh inserts are among the styling updates made specifically for the Street seat. However, comfort still remains the hallmark of any Mustang seat, so this saddle feels as good as it looks, adds Simmons. “The Fastback places the rider about 1” back for the ideal riding position.”
“Riders can set up their Street for a low, lean look with the streamlined Fastback or go for even more comfort with our Touring seat option,” Simmons continues. For longer rides, the 12.5″ wide one-piece Vintage Touring seat sets the rider back and slightly up compared to the stock seat to better position your legs for comfortable cruising. The 9″ wide passenger seat ensures that your companion will also be comfortable and happy for the long haul.
The addition of a driver backrest on the Vintage Touring seat provides the ultimate in comfort and versatility. The fully adjustable driver backrest features several height adjustments, pivots to the driver’s back angle and removes easily without tools. Again, the 9″ wide passenger seat ensures that your companion will also be comfortable for the long haul.
Part numbers for Street 500/750 seats:
76420 – Fastback
76421 – One-piece Vintage Touring
79786 – One-piece Vintage Touring with Driver Backrest
In addition to the new Street 500 and 750, Mustang also offers replacement seats for virtually all late model Harley motorcycles. For more details, please contact Mustang Customer Service at 413-668-1190 or 800-243-1392 or go to: www.mustangseats.com

Mustang Brings Back Breast Cancer Awareness Limited Edition Seats
Mustang Seats, LLC continues to fight for a cause that hits close to home for members of the company’s extended family; breast cancer. The new “Fight Like A Girl” limited edition pink seats commemorating National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a continuation of last year’s successful “Comfort For A Cause” campaign that saw a portion of the proceeds for every pink seat sold go directly to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s efforts to find a cure.
Mustang is continuing to help bikers “think pink.” Mustang marketing director Marilyn Simmons explains, “Last year, Mustang introduced our Breast Cancer Awareness custom seat program, which offered pink thread and pink vinyl seat inserts or pink vinyl ribbon appliqués on seats or accessories.” Mustang is upping the game this year. “For October 2014, Mustang is now proud to introduce your choice of custom pink stitched embroidery for Breast Cancer Awareness month.”
Mustang will add custom pink embroidered ribbons, phrases, tributes, memorials or initials on the seat of your choice for the duration of their new “Fight Like A Girl!” campaign. Please note that the location may vary from the seat shown; not all seats or accessories can be customized. (A full custom embroidery program offering a variety of colors and images will be available soon from Mustang after the pink pilot program wraps up.)
Like last year, Mustang will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each “Fight Like A Girl” or other pink custom embroidered seat purchased from now through 12/31/14. For more details or to order, please contact Mustang Customer Service at 413-668-1190 or 800-243-1392 or click here: www.mustangseats.com/Mustang/Comfort-for-a-Cause
