Can't help you on that one but for less than half you can go with the Protac, not as fancy as the one from Scootworks but functional

I noticed the only ones listed on that page for the VN750 were the ProTac backrests. Contact Protac directly, ask for Harold and mention the VN750 group and I believe you will get a better price.

There's another one for the Vulcan 750 HERE, by a company called Utopia, for $215.
(the pic of a bike they show it used on isn't a 750, but gives ya an idea what it'll look like)
It folds down over the drivers seat, if needed, for a passenger to get on)

I got a seat from ebay that had one of these on it, but the guy removed it and said it'll go on the seat of his next ride because he thought it was so comfortable.
Only problem with it is, you have to mount it through the seat cover and padding (about a 2 inch long single cut) then bolt it to the seat pan.

I bought a Protac from Woody.

Went about 130 miles this weekend and it made a huge difference.

If you are going on any long rides I would definetly reccomend getting one of these.

I've got the Protac too and love it. I don't think you can go wrong for the price.

Once I installed the Protac backrest I didn't have a problem with high speed ridein..
