I got mine form The Forge LLC See my post here for pictures. Very happy with Joe's work and the quality and craftsmanship is top notch, as is the powder coating. Dealing with the purchase was another aspect that I really liked as he doesn't collect the entire purchase cost up front, sends pictures for approval for custom work, and responds to emails and phone calls quickly. My only regret is that it won't be on the bike for Shark Week as the Tour-Pak will have to replace it on the quick release system.

Very nice bro, looks great. I have yet to see another bike like yours with that paint in person.

Here's mine. I had to modify it a little, a little cutting, heating up & changing the angle a bit etc.

I have you and your beautiful scoot to blame for my getting a sissy bar. I saw yours and looked closely at Bill's Bike Barn last fall and couldn't get a sissy bar out of my mind until I had one on mine.

Bowman Welding on ebay. Not a quick detach. Excellent quality, great powder coat. Fit was zero problem.

Nothing, 1-piece unit. I chose their quick release option that works perfectly with my quick release mounts and rear shock mounts. They will install the brackets you need depending upon what you order.

I know this is an older thread but how did you heat up the bar to change the angle? Did you mess up the powdercoat? I like how yours is kicked back. Mine is just a bit too straight up for my taste but the quality is great. I did have a little trouble getting the latches to lock on the docking hardware though. Ended up beating them down with a dead blow and a wooden dowel.

Used a gas torch, got it nice n hot. Powder coat is cheap & I was gonna have it done again anyways as I also cut off the pillow mount in center for a clean old school look. I have a HD backrest & pad when I have a passenger so I didn’t care about that.
