    The Mustang website indicates that all touring bikes 1980-1996 can take the same seat. So I would say yes.

    Thank you Dave...

    One more for you:

    Would the Air Ride solo saddle, with the air bladder, fit a pre. 91 FLHS..?

    It was fitted to a '95 RK.

    If it is a police solo air ride saddle, looks like it might, the same seat went from 1984 to 2009....with upgrades as designated by the part numbers:

    52242-83 to 52242-83E .... the only major change I can see being a swtich from a spring shock absorber to an air system?

    But if I was you, I would check with a dealership. I couldn't find a definitive answer on the web.

    Hi Dave, I wish the Seller had a P/N... but they don't.

    I'll see if I can call by, with the bike, and offer it up...
