I've wondered what Harley seats(or third party) will fits a 2018 through 2020 Fat Bob. Note: Some of the Road Kings and Ultimate/Deluxe seats are wide to give a very comfortable ride. If you have modified a wide seat to fit on a 2018-2020 Fat Bob, I would interested in hearing what you did to modify the seat OR what other seat will fit. I have a 2018 Fat Bob and my brother has a 2020 Fat Bob. I got the Mustang 16" wide, with backrest(#79334) for my 2018 Fat Bob. Any advice would help. Thanks

The Mustang with backrest (79334) is wide enough, but it covers my rear end, but it is built like a Police seat, and the seat with it thick padding(rear seat thickness) is a bout 4" inches thick, and moves me forward a full 2", than the stock seat.
I might have to take-out 1" inch of foam, from back of seat. Don't know if that's possible, might make the cover wrinkle.

Ask Google for an upholsterer. Be sure to look at samples of their work. I once had gel put in the leather seat. It was beautiful until I sat on it in the hot sun. Fried my azz.lol

Google? I could find someone to modify the seat, very easily. One guy wanted $350 to modify/add foam(etc) to the stock seat. I would do it myself before I would pay someone $350. Stock seat wasn't terrible, but i wanted a wider seat and a backrest. The Mustang seat is nice. I'm getting more used to it, the more I drive. I'll drive more and just see how it works out. I was just used to more width, going foward to the tank. They said it takes 15 minutes to break in. I believe it takes longer than that. Put 250 miles on it and it is feeling a little better.(probably because of the backrest). But Thanks
