    I'm looking for a 2 up seat with a wide passenger cushion for my 1997 Road King. The wife isn't very happy with her current accommodations.
    Let me know if you have something of interest. I use Paypal only, unless its local.

    IIRC, '97 Road King seats were two piece; a driver and passenger seat. I have a one piece stock seat from an '02 FLHT (Electraglide Standard) that was worked over by Mean City Cycles. My wife prefers the softail as a passenger and I have replaced the '02 FLHT seat with a solo seat; don't need to accommodate a passenger on the FL any more. I can send pictures if interested. Seat isn't even broken in yet.

    I'm not sure about what came on the bike OEM. As I now it has a 1 piece seat it has a metal tab up front and an eyelet in the back for the attachment screw. Pictures Yes please!

    Me thinks so too. Jeff posted that Mean City Cycles website, I got an inquiry into them.
    I like my part of the seat, Allen @ Mean City said he can do just an upgrade to the passenger part.
    Jack what does Harley list as the P/N of that seat #14?

    52164-97E. Mean City Cycles has modified both driver and passenger parts of the seat I offered. Narrowing the section of the passenger seat where it connects to the driver seat is important; that was my wife's biggest complaint. That section was wide enough that it would chafe her inner thigh on a long ride, so I had that section narrowed and memory foam added.
