Mustang Seats is rolling out its Dave Perewitz Signature Series Seats, available for 2008-14 Harley FL touring motorcycles.
Dave Perewitz is a New England original, just like Mustang Seats. One of America’s premiere painters and bike builders, Dave is a New England native, which makes him the perfect partner twice over. Mustang is honored to team up with this legend to create the Perewitz Signature Seat Series. Combining his unique design style with Mustang's unmatched comfort has resulted in five unmistakably cool new seats.
A legend was born when Dave Perewitz built his first bike back in 1973. Since then, Dave’s artistry and skills have earned him a worldwide reputation for building custom bikes, particularly baggers (or "Baggas" as Dave says with his distinctive Massachusetts accent). Dave and the team at Mustang have worked closely together to create the Signature Series, comprised of one solo seat and four Fastback styles. Most Harley-Davidson FL models from 1997 and up are encompassed by the collection.
The Perewitz Signature Solo seat fits the 2008-14 FL Touring line. Only 11” wide, it is narrower than any stock seat. It also features an innovative hidden installation system so there are no visible bolts or brackets. Matching fender bibs incorporate the diamond stitching with braided edge trim found in the seats. These bibs are felt-backed to protect paint and contoured to fit the fender with no gaps around the edges… and better yet, retail for less than $50.
The four Perewitz Signature Fastbacks are a full 12-inches wide up front, tapering to a sleek 7-inches at the back. Like all Mustang Tripper style seats, the Perewitz Signature Series Seats are cut low to the ground, yet retain enough molded foam to be comfortable. That svelte rear section flows smoothly to the fender, yet has adequate padding for use as a passenger seat in a pinch. Most 2008-14 FLs are covered by a single part number (#76981). So are 1997-07 Road Kings, 1997-05 Screamin’ Eagle editions and 2006-07 FLHX Street Glides (part #76980). Ditto for the 1997-2007 FLHT and FLTR (#76983), as well as a seat specifically for the 2006-14 Softail 200mm Wide Tire, 2006-10 FXST, 2007-14 FLSTF Fat Boy and 2008-11 FLSTSB Cross Bones (#76982).
"Superb styling combined with Mustang's reputation for all-day comfort makes a superior seat," says Mustang Marketing Director, Marilyn Simmons. "Designed by Dave Perewitz, made by Mustang… what could be better?"
