Back rest for a solo seat?

Im running a CVO solo seat currently. I had thought about getting a tour pack and mount that puts the pack up behind me so I could use it as a back rest but thats an expensive way to get a backrest. Does anybody make a rider back rest for solo seats? One that the bracket looks a little more finished, since you will be seeing it? Also, the few ones I have tried seem to sit me straight up and forward. Id like to find one that leans back a little or maybe one that is adjustable. Does one of these even exist?

There's some recent info on this site. SteadyEddy says that only 1 company makes them. Try a search.

It's likely the cvobackrest.com site that looks sketchy at best.

No rfg7680. I didn't mean that I had found one that works with my seat, I just meant that any of the bikes I've sat on with a back rest, I didn't like

Gotcha. My Mustang vintage solo had a nice backrest. Plenty of adjustment. But the seat was too hard. So I went with this one. Glad I did. I just would like a backrest too. I'll see if I can dig up that site.

The site leaves lots to be desired. Have you used them or seen them in person? Do they have any adjustment? They look good for sure

I think it was @SteadyEddie that first posted that, I believe he has one.

I have not. Because the site looks hokie at best. And the original company from what I understand made them for 75 bucks or something real cheap.

Hopefully @SteadyEddie replies.
