Mustang Now Makes Seats For Gold Wings
TERRYVILLE, CT – January 25, 2013 – (Motorsports Newswire) – With a longstanding reputation for comfort, the folks at Mustang have been handcrafting a wide array of seats since 1980. Given that the company’s tagline is “What A Difference Comfort Makes” and the fact that most Mustang seats are designed with all-day riding comfort in mind, it’s a pleasant surprise to learn that they offer seats for Honda’s cult classic touring bike, the Gold Wing. Definitely worth the wait!
Honda introduced their ultra-mileage touring machines back in 1974 and more than a million Gold Wings were made in their Marysville, Ohio, motorcycle plant from 1979-2009. Now Mustang has most Wings on the road covered, with seats for the 2010-2011 GL 1800 available now. The 2012-2013 seats are coming soon (although purists will point out that there were no Wings produced in 2011).
Mustang’s one-piece touring seat pictured here is 18” wide, 1” lower than stock and also sits the Wing’s pilot back a full inch. By making the nose of the seat narrower than stock, it makes it easier for riders to plant their feet firmly on the ground. The matching passenger’s seat is a full 18.5” wide, with a bucketed shape to prevent the passenger from sliding forward. The passenger backrest features Mustang’s unique “comfort wedge” that angles the passenger’s upper back 2″ forward compared to the stock backrest for more vertical support and comfort. Combined with Mustang’s proprietary polyurethane foam material and baseplate, the result is a seat guaranteed to deliver all-day comfort.
The world’s most comfortable seats are also available with optional heating elements. To further help alleviate back pain during long days in the saddle, Mustang offers fully adjustable, easily removable driver’s backrests.
