riders backrest?

I know Protac went out of business. Does anyone else make a riders backrest for the Vulcan 750? I am searching eBay for a used one, but so far nothing has turned up. I get the idea this is something that most people would not want to sell. Any ideas? I am starting to have lower back problems.

Ok, thanks, I sent them an email. I only saw one reference to the backrest in that 5 page thread. I did a search, but did not come up with anything recent. I don't really keep up with the forum that well, my job has me on the road most of the time.

Not questioning the quality, but what'd he charge for the backrest?
