Mustang signs Fred Kodlin
Motorcycle seat maker Mustang Motorcycle Products, of Three Rivers, Massachusetts, has entered into a design collaboration with German custom bike and parts designer Fred Kodlin to sell Kodlin "Signature Series" seats by Mustang.
Europe’s most famous father-son custom bike team, Fred and Len Kodlin have "combined their design vision with the handcraftsmanship of Mustang to create exceptional new seat styles. Whether you ride a Dyna, Sportster, FL or a Softail Breakout, you can now complete your custom look with a truly extraordinary, one-of-a-kind seat from Kodlin and Mustang."
Mustang say that Fred Kodlin seats feature distinctive panels of luxurious Alcantara, described as a high-end material with a suede-like texture and appearance, but offers ultra-durability. It is coveted for use in luxury automobiles as well as space vehicles. "Each new seat is available in a two-tone look that features center panels of soft black or maroon Alcantara with matching or contrasting black or brown vinyl side panels."
They are available in a solo style for Dyna and Wide Glide 2006-up and for Sportster 2004-'06 and 2010-up. In addition to the solo seat, there is an optional matching passenger pad for Softail Breakout models. The Kodlin style seat for 2008-up FL models is described as a distinctive one-piece, two-up style.
