Mustang Two-Piece Wide Touring Seat: Vintage Edition, for Suzuki Boulevard M50 2005-2011

Mustang Two-Piece Wide Touring Seat

One of my favorite improvements this Mustang seat provides is that it pushes slightly into the lower back, for more stability while riding and better control. The rider, and passenger, can comfortably ride much longer distances.

More stability, longer rides!

This is the Vintage Edition: no studs, no conchos. Just the clean, elegant look to match the muscles on your M50.

Here's what Mustang has to say about these particular seats:

The 15.5” wide driver bucket sits you at the ideal cruising angle and is one of several design improvements over the stock seat. The entire 11.5” width of the comfortable passenger seat is fully supported by Mustang’s unique internal steel support wings-- no sagging on the edges, no more passenger complaints.

If they are so great, why sell them?

Had this comfortable Mustang Two-Piece Wide Touring seat on my previous 2005 Suzuki Boulevard M50. Then switched from the modern M50 to the touring-happy, classic cruiser-looking C50T, as the adventure trips become longer and longer. Kept these seats in mint condition hoping they would fit my current 2005 C50T. Unfortunately, the angle of the seat is too different. Had such an enjoyable experience with them that I'm now selling to buy the C50 equivalent, Vintage Edition as well.

If these are the seats you had in mind when you started looking for that added comfort on your ride, then it's time to put your money where your mind is and buy them on Kijiji.

Ride safe!
