    New to the forums, just bought an 07 FXDL and looking into a new seat. Any thoughts on Mustang Vintage versus LaPera Maverick?

    I have no experience with LaPera, but I recently purchased a Mustang seat for my FXSTC through the internet sight unseen.

    The first time my wife went to get on the bike, she's 5'2" tall, she dragged a foot across the New Mustang seat and the paper thin leather split open like a cheap bag of potatoe chips. I was shocked at how thin the leather was. We've superglued the 3 corner tear down so it doesn't spread, but the aesthetics are gone. If possible look at what you're going to buy to make a determination as to it's durability. I wish I did

    Hello,

    I actually have a LePera King Cobra seat for sale (in excellent condition). Its a great seat just does not fit me new bike. I am selling it for $125, and retails new at $325. Are you interested?

    Thanks.

    I appreciate it, but I'm looking for more of a long-range comfort seat.

    Hi Big,
    I went with a Danny Gray dual inflator seat on our fatboy and both me and the other half have been very pleased with the comfort level.especially the pillion which I have to say is particularly important when riding with rider/passenger communication on.

    Thank you for the help! I actually went with the LePera Maverick - Daddy Long Legs.

    I have been looking for a longer range seat for the Fat Bob. My wife can only stand the stock seat for about 30 minutes. The problem is I don't want a big seat that takes away from the lines of the bike. Mustang Day Tripper or Danny Gray 2up good for the passenger?

    Actually LePera is a very nice seat and very durable; a bit stiffer than the others, but not quite as stiff as a Corbin by any stretch!
