Seat InstallationMost Mustang seats are designed to install just like your stock seat--using the same mounting points and hardware as your original seat. It usually takes about fifteen minutes to remove the stock seat and install your new Mustang seat. Detailed Mounting Suggestions are included with each seat and can also be found on this site.
Measuring the Width of a SeatThe width of Mustang seats is obtained by measuring across the widest point of the seating area whether for the driver (front width) or the passenger (rear width).
Compatibility with StockSince Mustang seat components are built for precision fitment to each other, it is usually not possible to mix and match Mustang solos and rear seats to stock or other aftermarket solos and rear seats. Before purchasing, please inquire regarding each individual Mustang solo or rear seat's fitment compatibility with stock.
Mustang seats are meticulously designed so that the baseplate, foam and cover components combine to make the finest, most comfortable seat possible. All seat components are hand assembled at our New England facility to give you the high quality seat that makes Mustang America's choice for comfort.
BaseplatesMustang seats are constructed on either a single baseplate (both the driver's seat and the passenger's seat are built on the same, single baseplate) or a two-piece baseplate (the driver's seat is constructed on a separate baseplate from the passenger's seat).
Both of the pieces on a two-piece baseplate can be attached together for two-up riding or separated to ride as a solo seat. Some Mustang seats feature a two-piece look but are actually built on a single baseplate. Mustang baseplates are constructed of either marine-grade fiberglass or steel.
The edges of all baseplates have a steel reinforced, impact absorbing vinyl edge trim to protect the seat cover. Polyurethane bumpers are strategically located and riveted to the baseplate to prevent it from touching the frame and fender and to minimize vibration. Mustang's unique internal support wings are added to the baseplate to provide maximum driver and passenger comfort. These wings support the entire width of the molded foam. This feature is found on most Mustang touring seats. Bumpers will not crack with age and are ozone protected. Solos with built-in driver backrests have the receiver welded and reinforced to the baseplate for strength. Foam surrounds the hardware to provide maximum comfort.
FoamAll foam is compounded and molded at our New England facility. For a seat to be comfortable, "it's what's inside that counts". The most important component of comfort is the seat foam--both the quality of the foam itself and its design. Each Mustang foam is formulated and cast to be soft enough for comfort and resilient enough to stand up to those "thousand- mile" days. Mustang has over 25 years of experience in compounding the right chemical mix to create the best controlled density polyurethane foam for all-day comfort. The foam has a density of approximately four pounds per cubic foot, depending on the size and thickness of the seat. The foam must then be molded to the correct shape to support your body at the best angle.
Mustang's high quality foam usually feels firmer than stock but is less firm than other aftermarket seats. It will compress enough to mold itself to your body shape within about 15 minutes of riding time--every time you ride. You do not need a "break-in" period to be comfortable. Your 100th ride will be equal to your 10,000th mile. Mustang seats are known for retaining their shape and support after years of use.
