Mustang Wide Original Seat For Harley Sportster With 4.5 Gallon Tank 2004-2016
If you are still riding the stock seat on your sportster this seat will change your ride for the better. My butt was sliding back and forth on my stock seat causing me to be inconsistent in my cornering. This seat hugs you right to the bike and you will see a marked difference in how much better you ride. Huge difference in comfort also. Excellent cushion and lower back support. You will ride more comfortably for much longer. I also ride 2 up with my wife quite often and this changed her world. She is so much more comfortable now and enjoys riding even more than she did before. The seat is a little spendy buy it's worth every penny.
Something to note for shorter riders; this seat will raise you up quite a bit, about 1-1 1/2". I ride a 1200 Low with a 29" inseam. I can still firmly plant both feet on the ground but there's not much bend in the knee any more.

As a guy who was kind of pushed into making his Iron 883 a light tourer, I'm actually really happy with this choice. Impressive construction, comfy, fit like a charm. I really like the relatively simple look of the seat, too; a number of similarly-purposed seats looked really big on the tiny Sportster, and though my personal preference leans more toward the little solo seats, I'm not at all disappointed with this. Regarding comfort, I got to do a small ride post-install, but the big 400-mile trip I had planned was put on hiatus due to some pretty bad storms. For the time I was on it, it was very comfortable and I have no complaints. However, I did observe that, with the stock seat, I was able to kind of slide forward and backward. Reviews kind of made that seem overwhelmingly a negative characteristic, but I liked it as I could re-adjust when I started to get sore. This one kind of pockets your butt right in the back and keeps it there...which, if it's as comfortable long-term as it seems, won't be an issue whatsoever.
The big reason I got this was for my wife, though. She's ridden with me for years and has no intention of stopping, but the passenger bolt-on for the stock seat was pretty sad. This one has metal reinforcing the shape of the passenger pad, and it's much more comfortable. She's quite happy with the result.
I'm also including a number of pictures with this seat as compared to the stock seat. I had searched for good examples on Google prior to purchasing and didn't find too much; hopefully somebody finds these useful someday! Anyways, again - I'm happy with purchase and if you're okay with spending a few bucks

I got this seat because the mustang day tripper seat was only good for about 2 hours. Killed my passengers butt. Put the Mustang wide original seat on and now I can ride for hours my passenger also likes it too. Huge difference.

my rider was not enjoying the stock on my harley . Couldn't ride too long. The Mustang Seat made all the difference.

My buns cracked a smile
I put this on this morning & took off for the hills. After 215 miles, without a doubt it's a vast improvement over the stock seat that had me aching after just 90 miles. I put this on my 2015 XL1200CP. I feel like I could have gone double the distance in comfort. I got the studded version & it looks sharp.

Good seat for the money, but not as great as I was expecting. The seat is a little pricey, but it's pretty much the best seat you can buy for your money on a sportster. It's a big improvement from the stock seat, but it isn't as perfect as I was expecting. That said, I don't think you can get a better seat for the sportster with the smaller frame and if you want more comfort then get another bike.

Smile from cheek to cheek, smile on my face too..
As soon as I sat on this seat I knew it was a keeper. Just putting the seat on changed the look of my ride. I thought the 'wide' seat was going to look bad on a skinner-than-a cruiser bike, but it fits perfect as far as looks. It rides so smooth and I no longer have to grip on to the handle bars as hard when opening the throttle since the seat will 'cradle' (for lack of better words?) yer butt during those hard accelerations. With the stock seat I had to change positions often because of how uncomfortable seat was. With the Mustang Wide seat the bumps on the road are drastically muffled and vibrations on the bike are way less. The seat I purchased was a 2 up seat and my wife really enjoyed the seat. The passenger seat is meant for sitting for long distances and not made for 'just-in-case' passengers. Take a look at my pictures and see for yourself. (Note, I haven't received the passenger backrest yet) If you're military, place your order over the phone for a discount, kuddos for Revzilla for supporting to the troops!

A must have seat
This seat is so well built. When riding on a bumpy road you barely feel the bumps. It is thick with padding and makes for a very comfortable ride. I love it makes my Harley look a 100% better. And you can not find this seat at a lower price than at Revzilla. Every where I looked this seat was from $455 to $525
Way to go Revzilla
