Mustang Seats had created some rumbling around the V-Twin industry when it introduced the lowest, leanest seat in the lineup for Harley-Davidson Dyna and FL models this past summer.

Proudly made in the USA, the new RunAround represented a bold look at motorcycle seating without sacrificing Mustang’s legendary reputation for quality. Only one problem — Softail riders wanted the same seat.

“Ask and you shall receive,” says Mustang Marketing Director, Marilyn Simmons. “Mustang’s designers went back to the drawing board and engineered the lowest, leanest solo seat possible for 2000-2015 Harley standard rear tire Softails.”

Actually the fitments for FLSTS 2000-2003, FLSTN 2005-up, FLSTSC 2006-2007 and FLSTC 2007-up were plotted on the CAD-CAM machine, but you get the idea. For good measure, they added most of the other 2000-2006 Softails to the mix, including FLST 2006, FLSTC 2000-2006, FLSTF 2000-2006, FLSTSC 2005, FXST 2000-2005, FXSTB 2000-2005 and FXSTS 2000-2005.

“Our combination of New England craftsmanship combined with 21st Century engineering means your RunAround™ seat looks as incredible as it feels,” adds Simmons.

“A well-designed baseplate is the key to success, so that was where the engineering team started.”

A narrow front width of just 10.5″ for all the Softail Solo seats works in conjunction with the low profile which keeps the rider styling… without having to sacrificing too much in terms of comfort.

The controlled density polyurethane foam can be poured a little thinner without compromising the comfort, while making for a much thinner seat pad in the process. Made in-house at Mustang’s historic Three Rivers, Mass., facility, the exact angle and density of each seat foam panel is formulated and cast to be soft enough for comfort, but resilient enough to retain its shape and structural integrity for years, according to Simmons.
