This seat will fit 1982 through 2003 stock sportsters. Using the stock mounting holes on the rear fender. This seat has great lumbar support for the driver and integrated sissy bar built in for added stability. Made from high quality black vinyl in diamond stitch pattern. Does not need a sissy bar to stay rigid . But if you are going to be riding a passenger we HIGHLY recommend adding one of our sissy bars at the time of ordering your seat for added strength and peace of mind.
