Mustang seat production end date

Anybody know when Mustang stopped making their seats for the VN750/700?

If it wasn't for time, everything would happen at once!!

That sounds about right, KM. I had a Mustang on my ride, it was SO much better than stock. Had 12+ hour rides, got off feeling fine. Stock was torture after 2 hours.

The journey is the destination.

^ 299 is only the starting bid. It should go for significantly more than that, even used.

That seat was really nice, and was marked 1-26-08... so it was about as new as you're going to get. Still, it sold for $350!

Someone on here I bet, because it was up for 2 days with no bids or buy it now, and once I posted it up here, it was gone in a couple of hours.

Well, I hope someone on this board gets to enjoy it.

BTW, it wasn't my listing.

Yup, I was the one who bought the seat this morning before I saw it posted here. I saw one go on eBay last year for $486 plus shipping, so I didn't think $350 was too bad.
Before I bought it I contacted Mustang, and sent them the link just to confirm the info on the seat, and they said it was genuine. They do not know where the 1-26-08 date on the back came from. Mustang does not put that info on seats. They indicated it might have been the sale date so warranty could be properly enforced. Some of these sat in warehouses and at dealers for a long time.
Mustang also confirmed that they stopped making those seats in early 2005. Based on the code number on the back, Mustang told me this one was made around 2/15/2005, and was probably one of the last ones made.
I looked into a private party sale of one last year too, and the guy wanted $375 minimum.

If it wasn't for time, everything would happen at once!!
