For the first time since the 1950s there is an Indian dealership in downtown Sturgis once again, and Mustang Seats LLC wants to show off its new Vintage Wide Touring seats made specifically for the 2014 Indian Chief/Chieftain motorcycles. Fans of the new Indians can get their first look at these saddles at the Mustang display at the J&P Cycles Store on Lazelle during the Sturgis Rally.
Riders in Sturgis will be among the first in the nation to sample the two versions of Mustang’s popular Vintage Wide Touring style seat configured to match the all-new Indians. Although both styles offer 16.5" solo seats that position the rider 1.5" back from stock, the key difference is cosmetic. Some riders prefer the studs, conches and decorative braid of Mustang’s Studded Wide Touring seat, while others are the polar opposite, preferring the Vintage Wide Touring seat without any bells, whistles or conchos.
Regardless of the level of trim, both versions start with Mustang’s proprietary marine-grade fiberglass baseplate and controlled-density foam. Mustang’s combination makes for ample support and all-day riding comfort. Passenger comfort wasn’t forgotten either. Matching 13" passenger seats get the controlled-density foam for ample support and all-day riding comfort, but the biggest deal is the option of a built-in passenger backrest (sold separately) that eliminates the need for a sissy bar pad.
