Definitely getting a new solo seat. Will be selling my Saddleman Dominator solo.

Anyone been on both of these.

Does the Mustang sit you lower? And back? Does the CVO seat?

The Mustang I designed. Diamond stitch, gun metal insert and gold stitching to match the gold pinstripe on my bike.



I like the look of the CVO too.

Both are great seats I'm sure but I really do like the CVO the best between the two your interested in.

There are more for you to look at as well. I was looking at both of those seats for months until I decided to pull the trigger on my solo seat.

I ended up with a Drag Specialties Solo Seat.

Glad I did because it's a great seat and thecraftsmanship is equally as nice.

The best part, it drops you 1-1/2" and sits you back 1".

As far as the CVO seat, I like the seat, a lot, but I'm sure the Mustang is more comfortable.

You need to decide what you really want out of a seat before just throwing cash at one then not really digging it.

Good Luck Man

Ya I jumped at the one I have now and I don't like it.

I've owned mustangs. Had a vintage solo with the backrest on my SG. It was good for an hour. Like my saddleman. 1 hour. But the saddleman raises me up an inch over stock. I thought I could live with it. I can't.

I have my Hammock for the long rides. I been looking at everything solo for a few weeks. I was looking at the Le Pera bare bones too. Crocodile cover.

well, i've never seen the mustang in person. but, i am a big proponent of the cvo seat. i bought one for my last bike, and of course, this one came with one. i took the one of this bike and gave it to my wife and bought a cvo seat to replace it. the one that came with my bike was black and grey, i replaced it with the brown one off the 2012 maple.

i find them to be very comfortable. and so does the wife. we've done some decent rides (south la to virginia) and not had any issues with discomfort. no matter how comfortable a seat is, after a while it is going to be uncomfortable. getting off of it for a couple of minutes and walking around does wonders.

it does sit you a little lower than stock, which for those of us with short legs, it is absolutely necessary.

if you do decide to go with the cvo seat, give pcpain a shot at pricing. i've bought both of mine from him and have been more than pleased with the pricing and service.

Awesome. I'm 90% on the CVO seat. I'll get it at my dealer. I have 250 bucks in Harley points. And I get a good discount so the seat will cost me maybe 80 bucks.

I'm not short legged. But I like to feel "in" in the bike. Not on it.

My only suggestion for you on solo seats is if you have very much torque from a take off, get the option for a solo with a backrest.
I'm currently using a LePera solo without a backrest and I can't stay on the seat and feel like I'm going to rip the bars off.
Just something to consider.

Bike is staying stock as far as motor. Stage 1 only.
