Looks like the same one I bought. Mounting is to the rear shock bolt and if I remember correctly one side has a small bolt that goes into the battery box area, the other side just has a pivot stop. If its the same as mine its adjustable fwd/bkwd as well as the backrest itself can be raised and lowered and the whole thing folds forward for the passenger to get on. I like it :)

Today, a very generous wing mech gave me a bunch of backrest parts. Two sets of brackets(both fit the 84 GL1200A)-two curved rails for the seatback, and one backrest. There was no bracket to attach the backrest to the chrome tube rail, and one of the big knurled tightening handbolts is missing(for the for /aft adjustment). I have no idea what brand they are. I am hoping that someone may have what I need or send me a good pic of the bracket so I can try to have one made. Not having much luck so far with seeing one on another wing.

Thanks

Best bet is to post some pics here of what you have so we know exactly what type you have. Heck if its the same as mine I might be able to fab somethin for you that you could then get chromed......:clapper:

Well its a different style than mine :( so I can't help ya there. The missing bracket is similar to mine, yup I coulda built one :X Your set appears to be a Markland. Perhaps you could order the missing pieces from them......just a though.

Yup, if I can get a look at the bracket, I can get out my trusty welder and fab one as well. Hopefully someone will have a pic.

Thanks

Here is what I came up with. Took a ride this aft and it was very comfortable. Now to cover it with something decent looking.

Since I can't figure out how to get two pics in the same post, here is a pic of my new setup from another angle. I was able to locate a set knob at a local bike shop today too. Very fortunate.

Looks good Hawker :) Bout the only difference in the factory model is that the backrest height is adjustable, but of course if it is set okay for you then no need to adjust:clapper::clapper::clapper:
