Backrest Plate/cover

I had several cover plates that mounted to the backrest on my 1500, both factory Honda and aftermarket options available with and without logo's.
Is there anything available for our bikes? Looks painfully plain back there.




If you can't be a good example, be a WARNING.

Of all the things that could be fabricated, that seems like one that would be relatively easy. You could, if you had to, remove the back rest and leave it with the fabricator to create something that would fit well, and could design something pretty cool between you. I know that's not the answer you're after, but maybe that's an option. (Coming from a guy who knows absolutely NOTHING about fabrication!)


You sure prettied up your other one! When I looked at your license plate, my first thought was it was a play on words for DNA!

I had the Hondaline chrome plate on my 2003 Valkyrie and would like another. I have considered making a tracing and having a polished stainless steel one made by a local fabricator if I could find one. A chrome one would be unaffordable and the stainless one would not be an exact color match. I haven't found any aftermarket sources.

There is something about the first generation Valkyrie that lent itself to "chroming out" in my opinion.

Thanks,
~Farther

Great Idea Farther.

I reached out to the guy at Big Bike Things https://www.bigbikethings.com/) and he said he would make a sissybar plate and solo cargo rack if he had the dimension but he is located in New Zealand.

Thanks,

I've had him make some things for my 1500 many years ago. He designed and fabricated the seat rail for my Ultimate seat.
Good man, good products.
I found a chunk of billet aluminum scrap which I will have made locally and probably powder coated black with either a Honda emblem or a small Valkyrie emblem.
Thanks Farther

You have to screw the bolts into the sissy bar pad back there so you’d have to make some kind of accommodations for that, plus to have the roll bag fit right I have to remove the pad clamp the bag and then put it back on, unless I just stretch it to the extreme and wrap it around the pad
