Product Release: Mustang Breaks Out their Legendary Comfort

by Editor on 06/01/17

New Trapezoid Stitch Pattern for Softail Breakout

 Finally, Breakout riders get the comfort they deserve with Mustang's new line of touring seats.  Featuring a unique trapezoid stitch pattern on high quality expanded vinyl, these seats and accessories have been specifically engineered to provide truly uncompromising comfort for both riders and their passengers.

Mustang's new solo seat allows the rider to sit comfortably back into a 15.5 inch wide bucket, which provides superior lumbar support.  For all day back support, choose the solo with a fully adjustable and easily removable Mustang driver backrest option (for solo riding only; does not fit with passenger seat).

The matching passenger seat offers a generous 11.5 inch wide bucket that is properly contoured for comfort.  Add the rounded 12 inch wide sissy bar pad and you've got the full  solution to passenger complaints!

As with all Mustang seats, the marine-grade fiberglass baseplate, proprietary comfort foam and individually sewn covers are proudly handcrafted and assembled in their New England facility (tours are available by appointment).  

For more information, visit www.MustangSeats.com or call Mustang at 800-243-1392 or 413-668-1100.  Feel the Mustang difference!

Vrod kickstand bushings

by Editor on 05/29/17

A friendly reminder to all Vrod owners: Check your jiffy stand (kickstand) bushings, the bottom one always wears out before the top. It only takes a few minutes to look and only a few bucks if they need to be replaced.

2003 Harley-Davidson VRSCA V-Rod jiffy stand bushing part number: 53158-98

Vrod scripted shifter rod

by Editor on 05/28/17

This V-Rod shifter rod was tough to find, they have been a discontinued item and is now obsolete. I had the folks at Trev Deeley Harley Davidson run the part number and there were none in Canada. I then called an HD dealer in the States and they checked the USA computer system and had the same results...
I made several posting on a Vrod Facebook group with no luck.... Then out of the blue I got a message from a gentlemen that said he had one on his bike and would take it off and sell it to me if I wanted. Wow, how cool is that!!!!
Thank you Joe, it's on our camera bike and it's very much appreciated!!!

2017 HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLHR ROAD KING at TDMC Customs

by Editor on 05/25/17

The team at TDMC Customs at Trev Deeley Motorcycles in Vancouver knocks another one out of the park with their latest bike build!!!

This 2017 HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLHR ROAD KING

With this timeless combination of style and touring function you don't just ride through the landscape, you're the most majestic part of the scenery.
Even your eyes can't stop wandering on this machine.

2017 harley davidson road king

The Road King is where stripped down, nostalgic style meets the performance and versatility of a modern Harley-Davidson touring machine. The Hiawatha headlamp and nacelle were born in the 1960's, when chrome ruled the streets. But the power of the all-new Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine brings it all into the here and now in a hurry. The all-new double bending valve front suspension and rear emulsion shocks put you in control for a plush ride. With cast aluminum Impeller wheels and one-touch opening saddlebags, this is the timeless classic built for today.
