Mustang Seat - options ?

Hello All,

I have been considering a Mustang Seat for my 2009 C50 for some time. So far I just haven't been able to pull the trigger on this particular purchase.

Does anyone here have the Mustang Wide Vintage Two-Piece #76061 paired up with the Grasshopper SKU: SC50TNM?

Obviously the the option is the Mustang Wide Vintage Two-Piece with Driver Backrest #79621.

By doing the Mustang/Grasshopper for Mustang Combo it could save some significant $$$. Especially if i come across a Second Hand Mustang #76061.

A lot of people use the mustang with Lonnie's backrest for the Mustang seats. I have the Mustang Vintage seat but only solo, but I do use Lonnies (grasshopper) backrest with it. It is just a different bracket then the stock bracket, Mustang attaches to the bike slightly different then stock. I also use his backrest on my Nomad with my Corbin solo seat. The Mustang backrest is nice but if you want to save money go the Grasshopper route.

The problem that will be facing is they changed the frame in 2009 and older mustang seat will work but they need to be modified. I have done both ways and it is better to get the seat with the back rest already in it.

Interesting thread.

I'm also thinking seriously about a Mustang seat with a backrest for my '09.

Another concern of mine is the fit of the seat with my Show Chrome solo rack.

I'll follow this one.

I recently did an extencive search and purchase of a mustang seat for my '03 VOL. Best price I found was $354.00 from Two Cycle Guys. The one for the '09 is the same. I'm gonna try to modify my Grasshopper bracket to fir it. If not, I'll buy a new one for the mustang from grasshopper and sell the one I have.

I have the Studded Mustang Wide Vintage Two-Piece just recently added the removable Grasshopper drivers backrest. Really like the combination. For the wife's additional comfort and additional carrying capacity I added the MUTAZU Motorcycle Trunks with accessory wrap around backrest and LED lighted Spoiler. My LED lighted Spoiler is in the moving brake light mode which really helps cars to notice when I put on the brakes. Their following distance often gets bigger when I brake.

I chose the mustang back rest. Like others the back rest is adjustable. I love the comfort of the back rest

I have the Mustang 3 piece seats and the wife and I love them. Once you ride with a Mustang, you'll wonder how you every rode with a stock seat.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
