I have the vintage wide, it took a long time to break in but was worth it. By accident I discovered that if I bent the tang down at the front of the seat it makes it feel more like an old Bates seat and is even more comfortable!!

I totally love my new wide vintage touring 2 up. Complete whore to install though with the sissy bar in place. Dont much care how it looks. My bony ass is so happy looks are secondary. My girl is totally thrilled with it as well.

These comfy Mustangs take a little gettin' used to visually, but oh man are they good to the butt!! We went with the Vintage Solo and pillion rather than the wide. Together we only add up to 250lbs, so the wide wasn't needed. It does make my already short legs a little shorter, but the added height also helped alleviate some of my shoulder pain. My wife can now ride for hours with me, which I think is a good thing... heheh. With the stock seat after about 50 miles she was ready to quit. Great investment.

Here's a shot as a solo canyon carver...

And 10 minutes later she's a comfy cruiser...

Here's a pic of my wide 2-up. I've clocked 3000 very satisfied miles on it so far.

So,I too am about to order one of these mostly for the comfort of the missus. I see a lot of you are running sissy bars and I intend to also but it looks like most of your sissy bars are "permanent", (although hard to tell in the pictures). I intend to go with a detachable bar like this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121111150369...84.m1438.l2649

any thoughts and weather that bar would be compatible with the mustang seat?

Thanks,"Bub"

My sissy bar is a permanent mount which is actually a narrower setup than the detachable one's. I can still remove my seat without removing my sissy bar.
You should have no problems with it.
Just a suggestion, if you do buy a pad for the sissy bar, Mustang makes a pad to match the wide touring seat. The 1st non Mustang pad I bought, the grain didn't match. Ended up selling it and then buying the Mustang pad so the seat and pad would match.
