Up for sale is a somewhat stock seat( with driver air bladder) and a markland back rest complete with pouch and brackets to mount it with. Only reason selling this is obtained a aftermarket saddleman seat from another member and dont need this one anymore. The seat came on our 93 SE when we bought it, but does not have the cover in the pouch as some others do behind the passenger. The air bladder works very simply, if you want to soften the seat ride, just push valve on left side and it lets out air from under you. If you want to refill it, just lift up off the seat and it does it automatically. Seat does have one little tear on front shown in pics, other than that works fine. I am asking $150 for the seat, $75 for the backrest w/brackets, pouch and padded arm covers. If you want both will sell whole set up for $200or BO. This does not include shipping !! If you live in MN,IA, ND,SD,NE, WI,parts of IL or MO, I can ship this for under $20 bucks to you using a local cheap shipper. Anywhere else it will be much more obviously, but you will only pay actual shipping costs..Thanks for looking !!! PM me with any questions or call 515-twofournine-9881...Any reasonable offers will be considered...thanks

Hi Mark. I'm interested in the backrest, is it in good nick and does the pad tilt forward to adjust as the angle in the picture looks a bit laid back for me? I'm in the UK and will obviously pay for shipping but have you any idea what it will be? I can pay you with Paypal if you accept that. Thanks a lot. John

I have no idea what shipping would be, but if you can get me your address via pm i can check into it..If your aware also of which carrier is cheapest for you let me know that too, ive never shipped overseas before..thanks for your interest!

FYI...I sent a backrest identical to that one to Taffy in Australia and the backrest bar made it almost impossible to pack and fit into the package down to the size needed for international shipment size limits.
There was no way to make the box strong either and the leg ends kept wanting to pop through the cardboard.
Wasn't too cheap either, as I recall but we got it done, eventually.
Just a heads up on that...

It has a little release valve on left side of seat as u r sitting on the bike, while your sitting on it you just push it, it lets out some air from under u therefore changing your sitting position...And to refill the bladder you can just stand up at a stop light or whenever and it refills.I had several 10-12 hr days of traveling this yr on that seat...

If you have the valve on the left side of your seat you would know it...its hard to miss, im guessing one of the 3 PO of my bike had it installed...
