What is that?

I was at the Carlisle bike fest this morning and I was looking around all the used parts tents and something struck my eye. It was just sitting there all lonely so I thought I'd bring it home with me. Luckily I knew someone there that was able to bring my old one home and I rode with this on the whole way back.



And yes it is a Mustang.

Well, now I have 4 seats, (wife's starting to notice) so I'm probably not going to keep all of them. I have the original "sofa cushion", a corbin, Saddleman and now the Mustang. I have a pretty good comparison now if anyone has any questions. I was going to do some measurements on them as far as ride height etc., and post the results later.
I've been riding the Saddleman for about a month now, it started out feeling a little too cushey after taking off the Corbin, but it really feels good. The Mustang is a bit firmer in the seating than the saddleman. I'm going to ride the Mustang seat for a week and then put the Corbin back on. I really like the stiffness of the Corbin, it really puts you down in the seat and doen't move you around much when riding the twisties.

At that price I wouldn't have thought twice and started looking for another. Sounds like you did the same thing, easier to ask wifey for forgiveness after than permission before.

Awesome score!!!!

That seat looks comfy. Wish they still made them for our bikes.

I only understand what I don't understand.
