Backrest

Hi, New here, just got a 04 custom. I installed viking saddlebags (hard mounted). I'm looking for a passenger backrest. Would a used one off a classic fit? Money is tight so any leads would be appreciated.

You and me both, been looking on Ebay for anything under $100, no dice so far. Let me know if you find anything.

My daughter would love you

I don't know where the bidding will end, but this is under $100 now.

I don't have a Custom, I have a classic, but I just bought this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=250609713640

I'm sure that seller has the same thing for the custom.

I ordered it on Friday before the holiday, and it arrived the next business day (tuesday) from Hong Kong. Shipping was expensive, but even shipped it came to $85.

The thing is solid, though you can tell the pad is made from cheap material (I'll likely replace that soon enough). The chrome pieces are solid. It looks good.

Thanks for not bidding on the one I got off Ebay for under $100 too.

Also picked up a cheap intercom system, it's got wires though.
