MADISON, Wis. - Mustang Seats announced its first product for Triumph in 30 years as it showed off its new line of seats for Bonnevilles and Thunderbirds at the Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties National Vendor Presentation in August.

The company's Classic Seat for Bonneville variants T100, Scrambler and Thruxton provides "period-correct" styling with modern materials. A slight ridge in the Sport Touring seat for the Bonneville keeps the solo rider in place, and a plush pillion section accommodates passengers when riding two-up.

“Dealers will appreciate the fact that our seats fit Bonnevilles from 2001-13,” said Steve Veltri, director of sales at Mustang. “This makes it a great stocking item.”

DayTripper and Tripper Fastback seats are now available for the 1600cc Thunderbird cruisers; the company also makes a two-piece touring seat for the Thunderbird.

The new seats are the first products made for Triumphs in 30 years, according to Marilyn Simmons, director of marketing.
