THREE RIVERS, Mass. New England customizing legend Dave Perewitz and Mustang Seats have partnered to create the Perewitz Signature Seat Series, a line of five new saddles that fits most Harley-Davidson FL models from 1997 to the present.

The Perewitz Signature Solo seat is 11 inches wide, narrower than stock seats, and fits the 2008-14 FL Touring line. The seat also features a hidden installation system with no visible bolts or brackets. Matching fender bibs incorporate the diamond stitching with braided edge trim found in the seats. The bibs are felt-backed to protect paint and contoured to fit the fender with no gaps around the edges. MSRP is less than $50.

The four Perewitz Signature Fastbacks are a full 12 inches wide up front, tapering to 7 inches at the back, flowing smoothly into the fender but with enough padding to be used as a passenger seat in a pinch. Like all Mustang Tripper style seats, the Perewitz Signature Series Seats are cut low to the ground, yet retain enough molded foam to be comfortable.

Most 2008-14 FLs are covered by a single part number (#76981). So are 1997-07 Road Kings, 1997-05 Screamin’ Eagle editions and 2006-07 FLHX Street Glides (part #76980). Same for the 1997-2007 FLHT and FLTR (#76983), as well as a seat specifically for the 2006-14 Softail 200mm Wide Tire, 2006-10 FXST, 2007-14 FLSTF Fat Boy and 2008-11 FLSTSB Cross Bones (#76982).
