Mustang Fastback Seat For Harley Sportster With 4.5 Gallon Tank 2004-2014
Looks good and feels better than stock!
I wanted something that was essentially the stock seat but one that was bearable to actually sit on, which the stock seat isn't. This one looked close in the pics, so I grabbed it. When I got it in my hands, I was astounded by the quality and hard coreness of it's construction. Everything I'd read about Mustang was true. This is a beast! I'd like to say it's all-day comfortable, but it's not. At least, in the 500 miles I've got on it so far it's not. It's better than the stocker, but it's not something you're going to tour with for 400+ miles a day.

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.

very well manufactured and good materials quality
For the front seat I felt it very similar to the stock one from my Iron 883 2014, nevertheless, seems like my wife on the rear seat didnt like it a lot. So I would recommend it for short trips with a passenger or long solo trips with ocasional company.

Product exactily as described in detail
The new seat is so much more comfortable and the style is way better than factory. Installs in about 10 min. and the ride is worth twice the money. I put the seat on a 2012 Sportster 1200 Custom and it looks" Custom ". Dont ride another mile on factory seat, I wish I would of done this 2 yrs ago. Plus it was about half the price compared to a Harley dealer.

Solid seat, not great for 2 up
I'm very happy with the comfort and look of this seat. Just installed it on a '14 HD Iron and it's a HUGE improvement over the stock seat. I like the bobber, minimalist look and so I wanted a seat that would work for occasional 2 up but retained the low profile look. This seat does pretty well from an aesthetic standpoint. But, know that if you're buying this seat it is marginal for 2 up riding. Obviously this seat is not intended for long 2 up trips, but even for short trips around the city, this seat is borderline for the passenger without a solid backrest. So, if you're buying this seat as a great upgrade for your stock solo seat that also has the ability for occasional, short 2-up rides and you're willing to get a backrest for the passenger, this seat comes highly recommended. If your looking for a seat that will work for medium length (30mi+) 2 up rides every weekend, look elsewhere.

Gives the look you want on Sportster 1200. Way better than stock seat for riding.

Although I don't have a lot of experience with different motorcycle seats, I can highly recommend this one. I put this on a 2008 Harley Nightster and anyone who knows anything about those bikes knows the stock seat is junk (as well as the suspensions but that is another review). I upgraded the seat first before doing anything to the suspension and it made a huge difference to me in rider comfort. I'd guess the Mustang Fastback moved be back at least an inch or so, and I can't tell if it raised or lower my sitting height...feels about the same. The lower back support - and support during hard acceleration - this seat offers is great, as well as the cushioning....makes the bike feel so much better overall. I don't know why Harley puts such junk stock seats on their bikes. I haven't put a lot of miles on it yet but I have no complaints as it is. Last but certainly not least, it looks killer on the bike. It follows the lines of the bike and bobbed fender nicely. No intentions of riding two up anytime soon so I can't comment on passenger comfort, but I highly recommend this seat for both looks and performance.
