Mustang Solo Seat For Harley Sportster 1996-2003
GREAT SEAT FOR THE MONEY
I love the seat although I wish it was padded a little more and just a bit longer so that the lower back was not pushed against it as much. Im 6'1 and 175lbs - I find myself shifting forward some to avoid the pressure on the lower back after 20-30 miles. Still love the seat though! Tom Qualkenbush, Loudon TN

improvement on a nightster
First, the "plain" version has a braided-trimmed skirt deal around the sides and back. I didn't notice this in the pics before I got it....some might think it's a little too much flair for the minimalist Nightster.
Second, it changes your riding position...I think it's an improvement, but I can see others not loving it. The internet consensus seems to be that this seat moves you up an inch and back an inch. I think its taller than that...closer to 2 inches. My riding position is different; I'm more "on" the bike tracker-style, rather then low-slung behind the bars.
It has pretty much solved my no-travel-suspension tooth-rattling problem. And, after a week, I think the riding position is an improvement, for me anyway.

An improvement over stock
I ordered this seat due to the wide touring Mustang seat being out of stock. I was a little skeptical since it seems like the wider seat is more popular based on my research. For the price, I'm not sure the wider seat would be that much of an improvement. This seat is thicker and firmer than the stock seat on my 2015 Iron 883. As a result, I sit up a little higher, which is a good thing to me. Probably raised me just under an inch. It is more supportive and I can tell it will break in over time. You want firm and supportive on a motorcycle seat, not mushy. The build is much better than stock - solid feeling fiberglass seat pan and riveted covering that is thicker and better textured than stock. One oddity is that the front crotch area is not as wide as stock and doesn't come down on the sides in front as much. As a result, you see more of the frame and tank support bar over the stock seat- just a little. I suspect this is to bring back leg reach that might have been lost by the slight height increase. My weight is more to the back when riding so this isn't a problem (I have mid pegs on my Sportster.) I have a 32" inseam and weigh about 250lbs. This is a relatively inexpensive upgrade from the poorly constructed stock Sportster seat.

Compared to the stock seat for my 2012 HD 1200 Custom, this Vintage Solo makes a huge difference for a comfortable ride. It's very easy to install and it gave the bike a more sporty look. I'm 5'6" and my feet still touch flat to the ground. No regrets at all in this purchase.

This seat is so much better than the stock seat. Get one. You won't be disappointed.
