Re: back rests

I just got one a few weeks ago from ebay, the ones with the hoop arch instead of the solid? I love it! Let me say though, mine came missing the nut and was put to gether wrong to begin with. Luckily since the nut was missing, the bolt fell out and I had to put it back together properly (after some asking around). Once together and on the bike, took a few trips to adjust it to where I like it, but once there, all was good. Wife sat on the back with it in place and said it does not take up any of her space. I like it.

Re: back rests

I bought mine from Raffy. I love it. Takes a little time to get it adjusted just right but it adds a high level of comfort.

Re: back rests

I've had mine about a year or better. Makes short rides nice and long rides outstanding.

Re: back rests

Makes an interesting solo travel rig.
Looks like a unique saddle as well. Have it built, or do it yourself?
Curious about the aft view as well. Looks like you would have room for a small cargo rack aft of the trunk.

How do you throw your leg over the trunk?. I thing I'd have to do some kind of step thru using the foot peg. I'll bet them rear speakers sound real good.

Here is a picture of my "El Camino" conversion from some years ago. I did "step through" to get on, not difficult, and I did not have to step up on anything. I could get on from the right side much better than from the left though.

The motorcycle bag on the back is mounted on a sliding rail so I could move it back to open the top box.

I did a lot of cross country riding with that set up, and loved it.

Hi David,
Could you provide more details of how you did the conversion.

May you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows your dead
