    after much looking around to find a Roomier seat for my 1990 FLHS im coming to the conclusion that it might be better to see if i can convert the mounting to take a later seat :D as the listings don't seem to go far enough back for my bike.

    have any of you guys attempted this ? and if you did how were the results im thinking that in the new year i might treat myself to the lepera daddy long legs.

    Cheers
    Chad:D

    You could change the mounting brackets but depending on the year of the newer/older seat to be modified, the seat pan could be entirely different and not fit the frame properly.
    Mustang seats shows 2 different style to fit 89-96 models for FL's.

    If you can find a Sundowner that fits your bike, I've found them to be very comfortable

    thanks for the replys :)

    the listing for the mustang seat i found over hear only showed from 07 onwards ill give them a call at some point to see what can be done for the earlier models , im not riding at the moment as this weekend ill be stripping out the primary drive and replacing seals and gaskets as she has a very slight oil leak coming from the back somewhere , so whilst im doing that im going to fit a new pulley , brake disk and new pads for the Billet6 Calliper :D

    so a decent day in the garage supping strong coffee should get that all done :newsmile01:

    Your frame should be the same as a 94/95 Road King. Try looking at those. The mount on the front of the seat may be a little different, but you could probably adapt it.
