Mustang Fastback Seat For Harley Sportster 1996-2003
Good looking and comfortable
Got this seat for my 2005 Sportster XLC. It's much more comfortable than the stock seat (what wouldn't be?) and it has nice lines. One issue: the the seat is a little long, so you have to insert the tang under the tank and make the nose of the seat bend up a bit on the tank to get it to fit. It isn't a problem and it looks fine, but it's worth noting.

Installation, like most seats, was simple. I removed the previous one, and installed the Mustang. The installation video didn't show there would be a bolt sticking out from the chasis that held down the OEM seat. Luckily, the seat had a hold specifically to accommodate this bolt. This meant that it needs to be a perfect fit.
There are two reasons this did not get 5 stars. The first is that the mounting bracket for the screw on the rear fender was slightly off and required me to force the installation instead of just screwing the seat in. It was offset enough that I couldn't just screw straight into the fender. The second reason is the unexpected increase in padding at the front of the seat. With the OEM seat I could plant my feet. With the Mustang, my heels are off the ground.
I was perfectly fine with the OEM, but needed a tandem and this seat was the only one I liked aesthetically. I'll deal with the differences.

Great improvement over stock
So far, I am really glad I purchased this seat. It is a big improvement in comfort and support over the stock Sportster seat, and it looks very good. My only complaint is that the passenger seat is pretty small and uncomfortable. I would say it's a bit smaller and probably just as hard as the passenger seat on the stock seat. That being said, unless you plan on longer trips with a passenger this is an excellent seat. FYI it raised me up about an inch above where I sat on the stock seat.

Great looks and great comfort
I have an 2014 883 Iron and this seat fits great. I looked at a lot of seats to add a passenger and they all looked really bulky. My original idea was to just switch it out when I was not riding my daughter on the back but after I installed it it really flowed with the bike well. As far as comfort goes this seat is a huge improvement compared to the factory seat. If you want to add a passenger or just want a good looking comfortable seat I would recommend this to anyone.

I bought this seat to replace an aftermarket Harley seat I had in my iron and I love it. So much more comfortable and such a better seating position. I never realized how cheap the harley seats were until I got this one. The quality and craftsmanship on the seat is amazing. It's a good 2 up seat for short distances but if you go on a long ride your passenger won't like you very much.

Holy mother of God
Such a comfortable seat it feels like your siting on angle wings it looks beautiful. The fastback is a amazing seat definitely worth the money

This seat is great. I'm a big guy and this seat is very comfortable. It moved me back on the bike at least an inch, but didn't lower my position. The foam in this seat is far superior to stock, it really soaks up what the somewhat harsh Iron suspension doesn't. The passenger section is small but functional. If you ride two up a lot your passenger probably wont thank you. But, if you're like me and don't often have a passenger, it keeps that streamlined look while still giving you the option.
