Can you post a link to the exact one that you bought on ebay. What bending did you have to do.I made the drivers backrest from a Mustang backrest, post and some 1/4 metal I had laying around. It's very comfortable and strong. The passenger backrest with the rack is made for a Honda VLX600 you can buy new on ebay for less than $50. Took some cutting, re-drilling and bending but turned out pretty good. I'm a function over looks kinda person.
