Motorcycle builders were experiencing birthing pains at the dawn of the 20th century. Many early examples were so wonky the ideas should have been aborted prior to ever going from paper to metal.

Mustang Introduces Perewitz Signature Series Seats
Fans of custom bikes are well aware of the creative mind behind Dave Perewitz’s motorcycle creations. Discerning riders are also familiar with the comfort of Mustang Seats’ saddles. Now, Mustang has announced the release of the Perewitz Signature Seat Series, combining these two great New England names.
Using the design eye first shown in 1973, Perewitz and Mustang have created a set of seats that should accommodate most Harley-Davidson FL models sold since 1997. The focus on FLs should come as no surprise since Perewitz is known to be fond of baggers.
The Signature Series consists of one solo seat and four fastback models. The 11 in. wide, Perewitz Signature Solo seat is designed for the 2008–14 FL Touring line and is narrower than the stock seats while utilizing a hidden installation system devoid of visible bolts and brackets. Matching fender bibs incorporate cover the stock seat’s mounting points, protect the fender with felt backing and match the new seat with diamond stitching and a braided edge.
The Perewitz Signature Fastbacks start at 12-inches wide in the front and taper back to a sleek 7 in. Based on the Mustang Tripper seat line, Perewitz Signature Series Seats reduce seat height while providing enough molded foam to be comfortable. The tapered rear can be used as a spur-of-the-moment pillion.
Mustang Marketing Director, Marilyn Simmons, sums up the collaboration by saying, “Superb styling combined with Mustang’s reputation for all-day comfort makes a superior seat. Designed by Dave Perewitz, made by Mustang… what could be better?”
