Look what I got for 200 bucks....

My patience and twice daily nationwide search of craig's list finally paid off...
One Mustang Seat AND an Airhawk pad as a bonus. $200 This thing looks new.
Real nice 60 year old gentleman who sold his 750 after four years of riding but kept the seat to sell separately....
TO ME!!!
How thrilled do you think I am right now???

I guess I'll have to take new pics and change the sig.
Now, that's how I roll!

Nice find.

And didn't you just sent your stock seat out for some "up-grades"?

Maybe if you beg and grovel a lot, msh1156 will sell you his modified stock seat. Or, he may find that his rear end and the Mustang don't fit as well as he'd hoped, and he'll sell it to you for some exorbitant sum! Roll On!

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Yes.. I did. And not an hour after the UPS man picked it up this sweetheart of a deal appeared on my screen. No way I was going to pass it up.

My plan is to keep my promise and provide a review on Spencer's work when the stock seat returns from Florida in about a week or so. I think there are a lot of VN750 members who'd like to know if it makes enough of a difference.

Yep - you've got an option to sell whichever one is not the most to your liking. Not a bad place to be.
