    If anyone has one for sale, please let me know. I've got two full touring seats but don't haul any passengers on any of my bikes so am looking for the solo seat.

    I've not seen very many of them so am not sure of availability.

    Of course they are which is seemingly like most other accessories for the Touring.

    I can get a Mustang seat for about that price but that one is sweet. I'm hoping that someone has a used one for sale. I don't need a backrest since the solo seat will be for local riding. I'll put on my touring seat with backrest when I head out on the open road.

    That's the one though. It has the same cut as my touring seat. Thanks.

    How do you find this stuff Peter? Where is All Things Triumph I wonder; Bangladesh or some place like that? A most excellent price.

    I think Google sends him lists hourly.

    All Things Triumph is OUTSIDE DETROIT, MICHIGAN. It's on their contact page.

    I have NEVER heard anybody say a bad thing about Mustang seats.

    Have had three Mustang seats, two Harleys and on my current Nomad and believe they are the best bang for the buck.

    I need to confirm that the PN is in fact for the Touring because while one has a pic of the Touring, neither stipulates it. The price difference is interesting with the one for $250 having a back rest and the one for $129 (regular price $143). Both have the same PN but one over $100 less. Hmmmm. I'll contact both and sort it out tomorrow.

    Thank you Mr. Ishrub. I'm closing in

    Edit: Just confirmed on one website that it is, in fact, for the Touring 2006-2017. It pays to know the PN so again thanks to our Reference (A) for parts and accessories, Ishrub.

    Now we all know that alot of "OEM" gear does not come from Vanson. It does not HAVE TO mean inferior. For anybody adventurous i stumbled on this place over the weekend. Leather Collection | Specializing in tailored fit leather racing suit . Philippines. Some of their designs are totally what I am after. But here I'd get hit with a shed load of import duty. Otherwise I'd be tempted to order something made to measure.
