I have many miles on my Mustang seat!
OEM seat removal was my first mod.

I like the Mustang that came on my bike when I got it, but it doesn’t seem as comfortable as the Mustang that was on my Shadow? Age maybe, seat pan design? Still beats stock.

Ultimate and Corbin seem to me the other popular options.

I have a 1300 C model, 6'0" 170#. For me Mustang wide touring seat SUX, Mustang SPORT TOURING is pretty nice, can ride 300 miles no problem. But for REAL mileage rides, the Ultimate is the way to go. I ride the mid-rider from Ultimate. The seats on C models are different from the other models

I like the Mustang seat that came on mine. For savings have stock redone by a local upholstery shop. It will be better than stock.
