Mustang Announces Metal Flake Seat Colors and Display for Sturgis
Just in time for Sturgis, Mustang Seats has release new color options for its custom seats. Designed to match the retro colors on Harley-Davidson’s Hard Candy Custom collection, the vinyl seats have metal flake in six available colors available on Mustang’s Tripper Solo, Tripper Fastback and DayTripper seats.
According to Mustang, after the starting its custom seat program last fall, so many customers requested a metal flake option that they had to provide it. The metal flake resides in the seat’s vinyl inserts and will feature names like Deep Space Blue and Vortext Green – which sounds like another way of saying Cool and Cooler.
Riders can go to the custom seat page on Mustang’s website to view al the options for seat inserts which now total 18 vinyl colors, including the six metal flake choices. There are also 12 contrasting threads to choose from. Additionally, the style of stitching is selectable.
While seeing the new options online is cool, lots of folks prefer to see them in person. Well, Mustang will have all the new metal flake colors on display at Black Hills Harley-Davidson during Sturgis from July 28 – August 9. “We wanted something really special to share with our friends from Black Hills Harley, since they have been such great hosts during the Sturgis Rally,” says Mustang Marketing Director, Marilyn Simmons. “This will be the first place to see the rainbow of retro metal flake colors actually sewn into the seats and mounted on a motorcycle.”
