Harley-Davidson’s new Road Glide and Road Glide Special now get the full Mustang treatment with the Summit. The latest touring seat in Mustang Motorcycle Seats’ extensive line-up is designed exclusively for the most highly anticipated bike from Project RUSHMORE.
“The Road Glide is more than just another FL for The Motor Company, and the Summit is more than just another seat for an FL series Harley,” says Mustang’s Marketing Director Marilyn Simmons. “The Road Glide has a special place in the pantheon of touring motorcycles and we think our Summit is pretty special as well.”
The one-piece super-comfortable touring design provides the rider and passenger with the fullest, most comfortable riding position possible. The 19″ wide front bucket sits you 1.75″ further back than the stock seat. The passenger seat is a full 16″ wide and fits perfectly with the FL’s speakers and Tour-Pak.
Adding to the comfort level is the optional heating element. All Mustang heated seats come complete with a wire harness that hooks to the accessory port in front of the battery. This part is energized only when the ignition key is turned on and the accessory toggle switch is flipped. Features include dual zone high/low settings for pilot and passenger, with illuminated switches on the left side of the seat. These heated seats do not require any OE controllers or switches to function – however, installation on FL Touring does require use of a Harley adapter.
Form follows function, as they say, so several styling options are available. The Vintage style comes without studs or any sort of embellishments. For Rushmore riders looking for a little bit of bling there is also a choice of black pearl-centered studs or chrome studs. All of these seats will fit with the factory handrail.
