I like mine, but since I have an '03 the seat snapped right on. Good luck, the seat is worth your effort.

I got mine from ebay brand new for $150. I was looking for about a year but if you want to spend around $200+ you can find one a little easier. Check the classifieds here and ebay. I also searched craigslist and found one is CA for a good price. I'll look for the email.

It took a long time for me to save but I bought one some time ago from Cruiser Customizing on sale and it arrived quickly andin perfect shape. I wanted to be sure I got the real deal and no flaws or damage, so I went that way.


On their website tonight I noticed a new tag that says "fits all current model years" but it also has the same "does not fit 2004-up" statement its always had. Not sure what to make of that since I think the '04+ needs a little nudge.

If you search rswarrior.com for 'mustang vintage' you will find different approaches to quick mods to make the seat fit 2004+ bikes.

Wow Jon, you almost stole that seat. I paid $200.00 including frt. Also I got the studs and like the look.

The seat fits easily, just have to grind away about an 1/8 inch off of each side of the rear tab on the front seat. For the rear pillon just bolt it on where the toolkit keeper mounts. don't worry about the rear of the passenger pillon, it wont go anywhere. I can take pics if needed.


The backrest is a seperate item there are several on the market. Mine is from Valueaccessories.com pics are in my gallery

I have a 06 warrior that I put a mustang seat on.

My approch goes as follow:

**New** 02-03 Toolbag/front seat bracket

Simply replace the old one with new one

**New** 02-03 Inner fender

Install Inner fender and Drill new holes in fender, Fill old holes by either welding them and repainting or buying little plugs from ace hardware.

Then the mustang with just go on as it should.



Also if you are looking for a rear back rest, get the Mc Enterprises back rest but for a 04+ it is moved sligthly rearward so it won't dig into the rear seat.
