For more than 30 years Mustang Motorcycle Products LLC has earned a reputation for manufacturing the world’s most comfortable motorcycle seats. Function dictated design. Like Henry Ford and the original Model A, you could have your Mustang seat in any color you wanted, so long as it was black.

All that changes for 2014. A full array of colorful options and styles will be introduced to the media at the Long Beach Convention Center as part of Mustang’s display at the International Motorcycle Show December 6-8.

Steve Veltri (Director of Sales, Mustang Motorcycle Products LLC.) says: “In a radical departure from long-standing Mustang tradition, we are now offering custom seats with a selection of different stitch patterns, inlay panels and thread colors to choose from. This gives you the opportunity to make your seat as unique as your ride.”

The first step in the automated online seat design process is to pick a stitch pattern. Plain, Tuck and Roll or Diamond Stitch options are available. Then comes time to pick a color… don’t worry, as you go through each step, you can see exactly how it will look. There is even a magnifying glass tool that enables you to take a close-up look at the contrasting stitching colors.

“We know that not everyone’s computer monitor is properly color calibrated, so we will be happy to send you a color swatch to confirm it is exactly the shade you want before handcrafting your custom seat.”

For you traditionalists, don’t worry, Mustang still offers basic black.

With the endless permutations of stitching options, insert colors and 12 contrasting thread colors, we are introducing the custom seat option on three of our most popular models for starters. Tripper Solo, Tripper Fastback and DayTripper are the three seat styles currently available to design your own seat from.

Steve Veltri says: “We did a soft launch of the Custom Seat program this summer to fine tune the process and see what customization options needed to be added.  Now it is ready for the official unveil at the IMS stop in Long Beach.”
