For more than 30 years, like Henry Ford and the original Model A, you could have your Mustang seat in any color you wanted, so long as it was black. All that changes for 2014. A full array of colorful options and styles will be introduced to the media at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show (IMS) December 6-8. “In a radical departure from long-standing Mustang tradition, we are now offering custom seats with a selection of different stitch patterns, inlay panels and thread colors to choose from,” says Director Of Sales Steve Veltri. “This gives you the opportunity to make your seat as unique as your ride.”
The first step in the automated online seat design process is to pick a stitch pattern. Plain, Tuck and Roll or Diamond Stitch options are available. Then comes time to pick a color… don’t worry, as you go through each step, you can see exactly how it will look. There is even a magnifying glass tool that enables you to take a close-up look at the contrasting stitching colors.
“We have a full spectrum of colors to choose from, including everything from Sky Blue and Burgundy to Goldenrod and Gun Metal,” adds Veltri. “We know that not everyone’s computer monitor is properly color calibrated, so we will be happy to send you a color swatch to confirm it is exactly the shade you want before handcrafting your custom seat.” For you traditionalists, don’t worry, Mustang still offers basic black.
For now, the custom seat option is offered on 3 of the most popular models: Tripper™ Solo, Tripper Fastback™ and DayTripper™. If you can’t make it to the motorcycle IMS show, go to Custom Mustang Seats
