I bought the HD #51562-00 for my 02 Heritage a while back and it's
crap! The concept is good, the foam is good, and the adjustable backrest
is sweet. But the gas adjustment cylinder is directly below your butt and
takes valuable space, so the seat makes you sit about 2 inches foward and about 1.5 inches taller. And there is no pocket to sit in, I kept sliding foward at every stoplight. I actually carved out some of the foam for a better pocket, but it's still a 600 dollar boat anchor. Maybe for a shorter
person it would work. I am going to the Hollister Corbin factory to have
a Dual Touring seat custom made with their softer foam. The standard foam is too hard for my wifes cute little butt.

Jefro, thks for the response. I have a corbin on my fxd that is great. read where the classic solo puts you about 2 inches back on the heritage which I don't want as I am 5'6". I am going to give the mustang a try with the driver backrest. thks. Truckman
