Mustang Seat For Sale

Well it's obvious that a Mustang seat does not solve my pain issue. So I am selling it here first.
Price is $375 plus shipping and insurance. Just want my money back.
I live in Mass., and it looks like USPS Parcel Post shipping to TN is about $25, and to the west coast about $35, including insurance and signature requirement. UPS is more than double that due to the size.
It's in great shape. The previous owner put the notches in the bottom to make clearance for bolts that held on a luggage rack of some sort.
Check out pics here: http://s232.photobucket.com/albums/e...20for%20VN750/

PM me if interested to work out the details.
First come, first served.

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

Ummm, no you can't buy a new one for that price. They stopped making them in 2005.

And, I've had it one week. I don't think trying to get my money back is being greedy.

But, really, thanks for the OPINION!

I can't imagine ever putting that much money in a seat; does it come with a happy ending?

OK, so you're not interested.
Your comments are entertaining though!

And I guess nobody on this forum has ever sold anything for what they paid for it, or for a profit.

Hummmm! Must be a couple of Noobs here.
$375.00 is Cheap enough for a Mustang Seat.
I've seen them go as much as $500.00 for a Used one.
They don't make them for the VN750 anymore & What's out there is all there is.

That's a great point. I must be a noob since I think it is absolutely crazy to put a $400 seat on my $1000 bike. This isn't always a miracle seat; a lot of people complain about the hardness of Mustang seats and the passenger seat contacting (and hurting) your lower back when riding.

Agreed, I got mine within the last two years, excellent appearance, but missing one of two bolts, and the pan was notched out to fit a bit better.. not bad for what I paid, not far off from what you're asking after cash & trade.

I think that is a fair price. And IMHO I think a mustang seat is 100% better than the stock. have over 2000 miles on my bike in the last 2 months so a seat make a world of difference. For the people who ride 20-40 miles a a time I guess the seat does not make much of a difference.


Good luck with your seat I'm sure you will be able to sell it!
