Sundowner Smooth Deep Bucket Seat is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep bucket feels good on the back Provides more support, I'm a fan. Not that I needed a lower stance, but it does make it easier to keep flat footed on the ground.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Seat But I Won't Toss the Original I just received delivery of my new Sundowner seat. It's a replacement for the original seat. I was thinking I needed more padding for the long trips. You know--the ones that have you pulling over every couple of hours to walk out your square butt. Went out riding this morning on the new seat and the first thing I notice is how deep the Deep Bucket is. I'm probably sitting down an inch or more lower than before. This also means that my knees are angled up a bit more so it took a little bit to get into the new feel of shifting and braking at a slightly different & noticeable angle. Here's the deal. This is a 5 Star seat/product. I give the product a 4 Star review because, honestly, the original Motor Company seat is the better product in terms of height and the ability to slide your butt forward or back a bit while riding. With this deep bucket you are not sliding back anywhere. You are stuck in one position. I DO think, however, that the deep bucket will provide a better lower back support while riding around town but out on the road...? I'll change back to the original seat where I will have the ability to slide about a bit and just plan on 'walking it out' every time I stop for fuel. BTW, the new seat LOOKS very cool! It really does. Very sleek. Well made. Great lines. It enhances the simplicity of the Fat Boy design. I ride alone. If my wife were to ride with me I can tell you that she would appreciate the width and padding of the Sundowner over the original seat. Recommended BUT TEST RIDE the dealer's demo seat before purchasing. I only sat in it. I did not go out on the highway. Had I done so I don't think I would have spent the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great seat I only had my stock seat on my bike for less than a month. I was going through the Harley Davidson catalog and saw this seat I knew I had to have it. It was a night and day difference. Even my wife sitting on the back told me how much better it was for her. If you are on the fence about buying this, take it from me you would really enjoy a day of riding in this seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent seat for long distances The Sundowner Deep Bucket is a great seat for long distance touring, comfort and support is great, not too soft and not too hard, just right for a 200 lb rider, and passengers are very satisfied. I have these seats on both my FLHX & FLHRSI. Sorry Mustang, your seats are just too hard!

I'm riding a 2003 Fat Boy, will this seat give me (I'm 6'5") more room to stretch out my legs?

Asked by: ezaleski

Are the Sundowner Seat and Sundowner Smooth Deep Bucket seat the same except for the Sundowner seat's having studs?

Asked by: Group413

Can anyone tell me if this seat sits you lower than the stock Heritage seat? Also, does it push you forward or back at all?

Asked by: kwn36
The way that this seat is designed, in comparison to the stock '16 FLSTC seat, is that the nose and the back portion of the rider's seat are higher. Width-wise they are similar, but this seat holds you in place and pushes you slightly forward.
