Do a search on here, there is a fellow member named Harold (I think) that I'm told makes these. You can go to Fast Eddies and get it for $140 delivered. Again I think Harold makes these for FE, so I would try hin first. Love mine!

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

if you find one on ebay make sure that it has 13" between the support rods. I found out the hard way that not all of them are the same width. I do have an extra set of mounting brackets for the vn750 from protac if you go the ebay route and need the brackets to mount them to the bike.

I have been in email contact with Harold. Just thought I would see if someone here had one for sell before I ordered one, maybe save myself a little cash.

I think you can hack a bit off the bottom if you want the pad more towards your lower back. I had one for a while, but didn't care for it as it kept me a little too upright, plus I kept bending the support brackets. For long trips, I have found that a backpack packed just-so makes a perfect backrest. A lot of people do like the ProTac backrests, though.

I can't see where the weight would matter that much, rider height maybe a little. As previous post suggested if you felt the back was to tall you could always take off a bit of the arms that slide into the mounts. Every rider is different so some tweaking may be needed. I want to do a little bending to mine, is ok and I do like it, just need to make it a little more me.
