Backrest for CVO seat

Pictures of newly installed CVO seat with backrest added. The backrest mount is of excellent quality and craftsmanship.

I like it a lot. Congratulations!

I have myself the low-profile HD solo-seat with the passenger pillion. I didn't know I could also put a backrest (only have it in my touring seat).

I see it is a much different backrest than the one in my toruing seat.

Thanks for the info, I will think about doing the same.

Here is my bike (RGU 17 with detachable tourpack):

I agree about the pad and will be replacing it with a different one. I would purchase the mount again but without the pad. You have one good looking bike!

Thanks a lot.

I think this is the one you have, isn't it?

It looks a bit weak mounting system to me with fixing only in two hole. Is it strong enough according to your experience?

P.S. I looks very nice, yet, I would like to see the other one you say

I bought this backrest set-up from George about a year ago. I've had ZERO problems with it. I was concerned about there only being one set screw holding the adjustable portion in its position. It has never moved.
I've emailed George a couple times, super nice guy and said if I had ANY problems, he'd make it right.
Buy with confidence.
