Looking for a mustang or similar seat for '99

Greetings,
I'm one of the folks who gets pretty uncomfortable after about an hour of riding the stock seat. I'm 6'1" and would like a wider seat for my 200 lb butt.

Let me know what you may have and approximate shipping to 83869
Thanks!

none on ebay... these seats are a rare comodity these days... and the price of them is going up way more than the seat is worth... your best bet is to get your seat recovered, or get a Russel Day-Long, Corbin, Seargent, or have Bill Mayer of Bill Mayer Saddles redo your seat... or one last option... go to www.jefferyphips.com and fallow his guide on building a custom seat pan, then send your seat pan in to him to cover.

I found that the Vulcan 900 seat fits & sits great! I can ride for hours on end without my butt going numb.Check ebay that's where I got mine, paid $20 + $25 shipping.Check out my pics.

I'd be curious to see how the Vulcan 900 seat fits up against the 750's backrest.

Does the 900 seat attach via the same bolt pattern/location in the back, as that on the 750?

You have to remove the backrest so it will fit.

hey I am new to the site. I have had my bike for a year now and love it but would like a better seat. how would this saddleman seat work with the backrest. I would like to get it and replace the backrest with one that has a luggage rack so there is more space. I was wondering how hard this would be and would it actually work? does anyone have pictures or advice. I love that seat but dont want to buy it if its not going to work. Being new to this bike and riding I love reading about what all of you have to say about it. Thanks

Welcome to the forum. The Saddleman seat is designed to work with the existing backrest. If you want to get rid of the stock backrest, you'll need to come up with another mounting system. If you get the Saddleman seat and use the stock backrest, you can add a Kawasaki luggage rack that will mount to existing holes in the fender.

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

maybe I am missing something, but my seat now just has two bolts in the back of the passengers back rest. and the Saddleman seat has no passenger backrest. so how would it bolt in there? pictures of someone who has done this would be great. and just to make sure flitecontrol that we are on the same page... you are looking at the saddleman seat that slimvulcanrider posted is for sale on e-bay right? thanks again for any help
