That looks very nice. It follows the lines of the bike and fits nicely to the tank as it seems.

Well, no Mustang Seat Solo Vintage Smooth for me...Just got the message from the Dutch dealer that they cannot deliver. The product is currently not in stock at their supplier. They've made inquiries and the expected delivery time is still unknown...Guess they are pretty busy at Mustang or....production is slower due to some kind of flu these days. Don't want to wait for winter so I got myself a second hand OEM solo seat for now. Let's see how that works out.

I think that I read somewhere they shut down (temporarily I hope) due to Covid-19.

I think you might be right. On the Mustang site and a lot of their seats are accompanied by this remark:
"Availability: Backordered - Due to high demand, orders placed today will ship in approximately 6-8 weeks."

"Due to high demand" looks business wise more correct than "Due to Covid-19"

i put a bunch of miles on the new mustang vintage.
i really like it! i ordered the matching passenger seat.
just put it on, a bit tall, but looks decent.
almost wanna raise, and move back the sissy bar a bit now.
considering re drilling the mounting plates for the sissy bar.
looking for a luggage rack for the sissy bar now.
thx all!
