New seat needed

Has anyone had their seat rebuilt by Sweet Seat and how did you like it. I would like to know which would be a better choise to rebuild the stock seat or a new Mustang seat. One way or the other this stock seat has to go. I weigh 195 lbs. and my tail bone is takeing a beating. I have a 900 Custom.

I was looking at the different options and opted for the Mustang Wide Touring seat. I could not be happier. It looks and feels great.

Edited because I forgot to say that I am 6'0" 160 lbs. My tailbone was always the first thing that bothered me on the stock seat to.

That's the most comfortable looking seat I have ever seen. Judging by that it must be a grand at least.

I decided to give Mean City Cycle a call and sent my seat to them for the Memory Foam Mod. Got the seat back today and can allready see a big difference. It feels much firmer and feels like it will do the job and still keep the smooth lines of the bike. Will post back after i give it a good long run.

Cool

Post some pics when you get time, Floridaboy, really currious how it looks. I'm 5'6" and weigh in at 185, but I also drive truck for a living, so my back side is not that uncomfortable on the factory seat on my '09 custom. Something about logging 120,000 miles a year builds calluses! Or is that character!?! lol

The seat does not look any different then it did before i sent in it looks stock. They remove the stock foam and replace it with memory foam that is much firmer. Give them a call and tell them what you want. They will give you a date for the seat to be sent and they rebuild it that day and send it back. The hardest thing for me was finding a box for seat. Found that U-Haul has a flat wardrove box that is 24x10x36 that worked out good. The seat cost me total $154.00. That includes shipping both ways.

Have you had a chance to put some miles on the new seat yet? I need to make a decision as to the seat change I'm gonna make while the bike is still in winter storage. Funds are limited so I am really interested in your outcome.
